As I wrote 2016 in to the dirty patio with the pressure washer on New Year’s Eve it made me think. It made me think about all those things we talk about doing but fail to make happen until one day, we’ve had enough and we decide to do something about it, today.
I walk across our patio umpteen times per day to our back door. The patio is relatively new, only three years old, and it’s been changing colour. Most of the time I don’t notice that the dirt has built up and the colour darkens to a murky green/brown. What makes me a) notice it and b) decide to do something about it….and what happens in between? I think life is a bit like this.
We go through life doing what we need to do most of the time, following established patterns, routines and meeting ongoing expectations. Going through the motions without noticing much. But what happens when we stop and think about our lives? To stop and put a pressure washer on our life. That’s when change happens. We commit to something different, something better, something which is a challenge and a stretch, something that is worth reaching for. We say yes, I will follow that dream. We blast away at the dirt and create refresh our lives.
What made me decide to pressure wash the patio on New Year’s Eve? I got to the point that I wanted a clean patio, I wanted the colour back, I wanted it to look cared for and new and I was prepared to work on it, immediately. I had the perfect tool. Cleaning the patio on my knees with a scrubbing brush would not have worked so well and would be much harder work. When did you last stop and think about your life? When did you put the pressure washer on it and commit to making changes? What do you want to do differently in 2017? Do you have the right tools?
