There are no perfect houses.
Updated: Feb 7, 2019
Discussing housing likes and dislikes with our clients I'm sometimes struck with the similarities of identifying shortcomings with our homes to the process of sharing the shortcomings we find within ourselves. Each of us, a unique one-of-a-kinder, tend to pick on ourselves, being our own worst critic, and confess that just like our homes, if we could change this or tweek that we'd have a bit more of that elusive happiness.
Just like finding the perfect place to live, we need to also focus on finding our perfect place to inhabit in this life. We need to turn off the negative tape playing in our heads constantly reminding us of our chips, scratches, and imperfections and learn to appreciate the nuances that make each of us unique. Our individualism is a gift we offer others and time spent becoming the best version of ourselves would be the best thing to do for those in our personal universe.
As we go through life updating, changing, remodeling who we are and where we live, it's good to take a moment and remember its our uniqueness that truly makes us special. No two houses or humans are exactly the same, and that's a good thing. Being less than perfect helps us identify with each other and makes it easier to support one another. Facing our imperfections can give us empathy when dealing with others, allowing us to forgive the slights and respond with more kindness which in itself is actually a bit more, well, perfect.
