Having five kids, she knew a thing or two about keeping a home. Aside from the dread of hearing her above referenced words, she had a point. Today with so many of us rushing, around it’s hard to do anything really well or really complete.
I see people (myself included) do stuff half way through all the time. Examples: Health, Marriage, Parenting, Work, Friendships and yes keeping a home. Of course it’s impossible to complete everything all the time. However are our schedules keeping us from doing anything well? Are we feeling satisfied with any of our output? Do we focus on only doing the stuff we want and ignore the stuff we don't want to do? Or the adverse, do we do only complete the stuff we have to and never the stuff we want to? Could this be a main reason so many have such unrest?
Note 2x: my new motto, "Be Happy To Be", comes in quite handy on this topic of completion.
