We’re having some friends over for dinner in a week and a half and it motivates me to to all of those little jobs that otherwise may get left – touching up the paintwork, changing the pictures, sticking down a loose carpet edge.
I want to present my home at it’s best.
I’ll be doing a bit of personal DIY as well, touching up the roots, doing the nails, putting on some fake tan.
I want to present me at my best too.
This got me to thinking – when do we do a bit of mental DIY? What are the triggers that make us work on out inner selves.
Normally it’s times of crisis, when things are difficult to deal with, but why wait that long?
If you work on little things every week you find that you are so much more ready to face problems or issues if and when they arise.
So, this week, check the corners for cobwebs, see if things could do with a little maintenance and get to work.
As with all projects, some are too big to be tackled yourself, or maybe you just don’t have the skills or knowledge to handle them. If this is the case there are always people out there who make it their job to help and support you. It’s no less sensible to call in a professional like a hypnotherapist if you need emotional support or help to change than it is to call in a builder if you need to do major work on your house.
