Hello and Welcome to Happy Mama Life! This is my series for the Write 31 Days Challenge and I’m calling it 31 Days to a Happy Home.
Day 4 – Create a Vision
(If you’re following along, you probably have noticed that I’ve gotten behind. But I’m determined not to give us, so let’s press on together, shall we?)
I hope you read the first posts in this series, so you know where I’m coming from 🙂
Now that you’ve thought about your “perfect home” and “reality” here’s the next step.
Create a vision for your home. Compare your perfect ideal and your reality and come up with your ideal of what you want to work towards in your home. What is the happy medium that would challenge you, but also be doable?
For me, several words come to mind like peaceful, clean, and happy. It took me a little while to put it into words, but this is my vision for a happy home:
To have a house clean enough for our family to enjoy day to day and to invite people into our home anytime
To have a peaceful home where relationships are of higher value than things and people matter more than the jobs to be done
To make dinner a process rather than a task, and involve everyone together
To take care of our things and enjoy what we have
To be outside as much as possible
To work together to accomplish our tasks
To have fun together and independently
The next several posts will be more details on each of those things. I’m looking forward to sharing those ideas with you and challenging myself in these areas.
