Reclaiming Your Home: It's Complicated

Your relationship with your home? It’s complicated… Not too unlike your relationship in high school with a certain fella’ named James. Ohhhh wait. Just us? Anyways, your home is the center of a lot of things – thoughts, emotions, feelings, memories, expectations, obligations… For instance, the kitchen simultaneously reminds you that you cannot buy those diet-sapping chips one more time, and you need to start making dinner if you hope to put something on the table anytime soon.  But, it’s also the place of all those everyday memories like baking cookies or making pb&j’s that you wouldn’t trade for anything. And, that spectrum of experiences is pretty reflective of the nature of life itself.  Life is filled with a bit of it all — the good, the bad and the ugly.  It’s okay that our homes are such a representation of our lives.  It’s good to be reminded that there’s a lot of hustle and bustle alongside the opportunities to celebrate and find peace. So, maybe there’s no define-the-relationship conversation needed, after all.  Maybe complicated is precisely what home is destined to be.  There will be ebbs.  There will be flows.  Perhaps, the question instead should be — despite the complications of your home and your life, are you celebrating?   Warmly, The Platinum Team]]>
