Messy woman alert!
Do you ever let your home look a little lived in? Then have pangs of “oh no! What are they going to think” When guests come over? I know I do.
As a society, we are conditioned to have things on the outside, of our bodies and of ourselves, look and appear perfect. People assume wrongly how our physical may indicate our emotional state, and draw conclusions that just aren’t true.
Our home can tell a story about us. One where we are out killing it at work, balancing side gigs, getting kids to various activities, trying to maintain social lives, and maybe even get dinner on the table. That coat thrown on the couch after work is not a sign we’re messy. Neither are the dishes left overnight. Or the kids’ puzzle left out. They are actually signs we have our shit together. SO MUCH in fact, that we are deeming other BIG things more important, and choosing not to care about that right now.
