#TuesdayThoughts: The fear of the mess


First, since it’s Tuesday, #ChatTuesday, “It’s not so easy from this side of the veil.” And now Tuesday.

It was cloudy a few minutes ago but now it’s sunny, and I’m not sure that’s going to change today. Tomorrow is another story, apparently we’re going to get a lot of rain and maybe ice. Good times ahead.

Right as I write this, there are people cleaning the ducts. Or about to clean the ducts. This should get interesting.

And very, very sneezy.

There are so many things like this in life, that seem like they’re going to be worse before they get better. Mess is the clearest example of that, sometimes you find yourself making much more of one before you can clean it up. Not that these guys are making any mess.

Which is pretty impressive.

But maybe that’s part of what keeps us from starting in the first place, the fear of the mess between the beginning and getting it finished.

The idea that when everything is taken apart, it stays that way. It doesn’t have to.

It’s temporary.

Like so many other things…temporary.

It’s kind of like that whole have to break some eggs thing, but when you break the eggs, they are transformed into the cake. Here the mess transitions into the best of what it can be, nothing more, nothing less.

And that’s just fine.

Have a great Tuesday.
