What's Working + Improvements Blank Lists
Along with getting inspired by the potential of what your home could be, it's essential to keep an appreciation for what it already is and how it currently serves your needs. Take some time to write these things down and name them by name. List as many loves as you can, then start writing your improvements and repairs on the next list. (Lists from Simplifying Home: The Workbook.)
See, your home isn't so bad afterall. Of course, there's always room for improvement. But there's also always room for appreciation. Keep that simple focus and you'll have a lot more contentment and a lot better perspective for the home projects ahead.
