New Carpet

I'm so tired I can't stand it.  Every part of my old body hurts.   On Sunday we completely dismantled our home - moved everything into the garage in preparation for the carpet installers on Monday.   The installation took most of Monday and hubby and I spent all day Tuesday putting the house back together.  

The old carpet was 16 years old and I've been wanting to change it for quite some time -- so nice to have it done and the new carpet is all soft and cushy - its wonderful.  But it reminds me of how often in life it takes a lot of hard work to get to one's goals. 

It also reminds me that things are usually easier than we think they are going to be.  George, my brain, kept telling me that the project was impossible, would be too costly and wasn't worth doing.  George is usually on the side of negativity and the status quo - George gets spooked pretty easily.  

Yes, I'm tired right now but so glad that we finally did this and glad for the ongoing lesson that action is better than listening to a brain that is filled with anxious and negative thoughts. 

The next time you find yourself listening to your brain - make sure to sort out thoughts that are helpful and the thoughts that just keep you stuck in "old carpet".
