Do you really know what you have?
I have a simple test for all of the HT followers and staff. People have said many times over how much it bothers them to do some of their daily/weekly chores like dusting, vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, etc.... so in light of this first let me say this: I have many, many black items, accents, and furniture pieces in my home. Dusting does not bother me in the least! Twice a week I take a dust rag and my coffee and stroll through my house dusting...but more importantly, enjoying the things I have purchased or made for my home. It is important to enjoy all your things if it was important enough for you to acquire them in the first place. Now for the test: NO CHEATING!! Pick your favorite room in the house..DON"T GO THERE...now, close your eyes and visualize that room. Can you remember in detail every little knick knack you have, why you have it, and where you got it? I don't think many people could..there will be something you forget. Don't feel bad about failing this test, just remember, it meant something to you at the time, it still should now...take the time to dust and enjoy your home and all things in it!
