We're downsizing to a small condo soon and we've just gone through the inspection process. So many little details that add up to a lot of dollars. Will the seller agree to pay or will it all fall to us? I don't know, but it got me to thinking about the inspection process of myself. I do look at myself and pick at all the little flaws.
I focus on all the details that are wrong - those few gray hairs, the dry skin, the lack of coordination and energy, those stubborn pounds, the bad choices, the fitful sleep, etc. etc. etc. Negative, so negative. All this negative thinking brings me to unhealthy places.
When I look at what will soon be my new home I see a beautifully remodeled space all on one level. I see the roof garden and amazing views. I see the exercise room, the hot tub, the sauna, the lovely clubhouse space. I can also look at me and see the wife, the daughter, the mother, the sister, the friend, the volunteer, and the GRANDMA. I see the years of wonderful memories and the wonderful memories yet to be made. I see the healthy foods and water that have given me enough energy for this day. I see the results of a decent number of sleep hours. I see the gifts and blessings that flow into and through my life. Yes, I think...there is a time for inspection. And there is a time to give thanks and a time to enjoy this moment. I pray you have many joyous moments today as you see the wonderful you that you are right now!
