As I look around our home I marvel at what my husband has done in the past year. He took out our bathtub, put in an extra wide shower, hooked up a shower head that resembles a rain fall, fixed the plumbing, dry-walled a new ceiling and wall, and installed an exhaust system over the stove so the fire alarm doesn’t go off every time I cook. In the coming months, he and I will decorate the bathroom with tile and new lighting. Our closets will have new doors, the carpet will be torn up and this wonderful husband will lay down new laminate flooring. An amazing man….with amazing tools.
What tools do you have in your tool box? How do you rebuild your inner house? What are your tools for change?
Humor, Mirth and Laughter are three tools I use everyday. The implement of humor lets me see a different perspective. Humor reframes any given situation. It is a can opener, releasing the contents of mirth and laughter. Mirth is more like a wheel. It drives my emotions of joy and pleasure. Laughter whittles away negativity and creates a moment of feeling positive. The act of laughing, even when I don’t feel like it, is sort of like duct tape. It holds me together for awhile, until I can replace or fix the part that is hurting.
It doesn’t matter if you are installing dry wall, or looking at your inner walls, you just need the right tool for the job. I bet you have it.
Blessings of Humor, Mirth and Laughter for your inner and outer home repair!
