1. I can relate to this! I am guilty of looking the other way with regards to ‘other people’s messes.’ And now I see it in my little ones. Definitely need to work on this one!

  2. We’ve got things that will one day be fixed too. I’m thinking I’ll just make sure they get in the trash before collection day. You’ve made many great points!

  3. I need to let go of pride. I need to let God change the one I can’t and I need to let God change my heart.

  4. I do the same thing with my dh’s messes too.. not just the physical messes though. Sometimes it’s the ‘life’ messes too. I can be pretty judgmental .

  5. I need to let go of my need for perfection and let God give me the desire to be flexible.

  6. Clutter in our garage, clutter in our hearts. I too can relate. Thank you for the reminder to respect our husbands and their choices even if they are not the same as our own.

    It amazes me how the clutter in my house mirrors the clutter in my emotions…and perhaps is related to my “body clutter” (weight) as well. I wonder if I can attack all 3 at once and have better results than I now have by trying to attack one area at a time. Perhaps just one room, one “baditude”, and one new health habit this month? The perfectionist in me wanted to say “this week” or “each day”. But I must be gentle with myself and allow change to happen over time. My tendency is to get all gung ho about decluttering, and get discouraged when it’s not all done in a few days or weeks. OR to go headlong into a weight loss program only to give up when a month later I haven’t lost any significant weight. I think I should attempt a more balanced and realistic approach this time. Thanks for the insights. Donna Robinson (Donna Marie on FB)

    This post really spoke to me as I seem to do the same thing about my husbands messes! 🙂 I need to accept them and him and just love him anyhow without trying to “fix” it
