So I’m sitting here, putting off the fact that I’m supposed to be doing my “daily chore”. It’s 9:15pm. Yeah, you and I both know it ain’t happenin’ tonight. I’m trying out this new cleaning rotation to help me stay on track. It was actually my swing day, so it’s where I accomplish one of the monthly tasks. On the to-do list was cleaning the windows.
Now, I usually will throw some Windex on our patio door at least once a week because that’s the door that gets the most fingerprints. No one really ever touches the windows in the bedrooms, especially during the winter. With that being said, them thangs haven’t been cleaned since we’ve been here. Almost TWO YEARS. Don’t judge me!
I’m talkin’ the window pane, tracks, sills, all that. Like who sits around and thinks, “Today in my free time I’m going to scrub my windows!” No one. However, it IS a task that needs to be done. Every time I see them I can hear them saying, “now you know good and well you shouldn’t have let me get like this.” Then I get myself all in a tissy because I don’t even know where to start in the process of cleaning this crap!!
I found an article on what seems to be the best way to clean them, so stay tuned for that post. How often do you thoroughly clean your windows? Leave a comment below.
Now, I’m about to flip the script on you. Ever thought about what your windows are saying to you? Not the literal windows in your home. I mean the windows to your soul. Your eyes.
There’s something about looking into a persons eyes and seeing the truth about what they really feel; who they really are. They can put on a facade and play Jedi mind tricks with you if they want, but their eyes will not lie to you. The same goes for you. Do you really know what’s inside of you, who you really are? Have you been covering up your true self out of fear or anxiety?
Chances are there are some areas of your life where you have been trying to cover up. Things that you don’t want others to see because you feel you may be judged. Insecurities plague many, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be overcome!
I’m here to say to you, time’s up! It’s time to start being true to who you are. No more faking, no more masks. Now is the time for true authenticity. It may take a little time, it will take some courage, but I believe in you. You can do it. Don’t let the nay-sayers deter you trying. We all make mistakes. It’s a part of life. But guess what? Mistakes have the power to turn you into someone better than you were before.
So, maybe its time to take a long, hard look into those eyes of yours and determine your next steps. Let your actions reflect what is truly in your heart to be and do, because hiding is overrated.
Until next time!
