At the current moment, I am sitting on my bed covered in clean sheets in a perfectly cleaned room looking into an amazingly pristine bathroom. Today, I cleaned….a lot.

I woke up this morning with a feeling that doesn’t come over me often , but I get very excited when it does: the need and the want to clean. I have been cleaning 2 rooms for the past 10 hours, and it has felt amazing. I couldn’t be more proud of my work!

After leaving Belgium, I decided I was going to try to gain the mindset that I so fell in love with while visiting my parents’ new home. This mindset of which I speak is one of pride, hard work, patience, and dedication. From this day forward, I pledge to adopt these 4 virtues as my own so-called “mantra.”

I promise to take pride in everything I do. I think this is something I don’t do enough. Actually, I think it’s something that many/most people don’t do enough. While I was in Belgium, Mom and I were walking around and walked by a lady washing her garage door…WITH A SPONGE. Me and Mom looked at and both thought (and audibly expressed) “who does that?!”

The answer:  someone who is proud of what they do, what they own, and how they live.

This goal has been moved to the top of my “Lifetime To-Do List.”

Will it be on your’s?

greatchadayis!

    Tonight our CEO asked me my thoughts on Belgium, and since I couldn’t sum it up as well as you did, I just told him what you said in your blog.

    Only Shery Crow said it as well: “It’s not having what you want. It’s wanting what you’ve got”

    Love you.
