The most beautiful house I’ve ever been in is my friend Lisa’s. I’ve shared her home many times here, and I’ve gotta be honest when I tell you that walking into her house really is like walking into my favorite decorating magazines. It made me feel a little inferior, until I realized that I’m still in my beginning – and she’s way past me in our decorating journeys.
When first arriving at her home and getting the grand tour, she would say things like, “We just added this room over here,” or, “Then we had another kid, so we closed in this porch for another bedroom.” It amazed me that her home looked so spacious, although she assured me over and over that it was through lots of years of remodeling that got it to that point.
I’m *this close* to the major remodeling being completed in my home. There’s plenty left to decorate (because I’m honestly never, evah “done”) but in just a few more short weeks all of the huge construction projects will finally be complete. I’m still in the beginning of my journey (the remodeling phase), while my sweet friend has been out of that phase for quite some time.
So, my sweet friends, don’t compare your journey, your path, your LIFE to that of your friend/sister/neighbor/favorite blogger. We’re all on different paths – but you’re just where you need to be. Don’t give up! Just start where you are – and you’ll get there… even if it does take longer than you’d like.
