Sometimes life becomes overwhelming. When that happens, things start to change. We loosen our standards. We ease up on routines. We get distracted by whatever is apparently on fire at the moment. That’s life sometimes! And it is entirely understandable.
There are some tell-tale signs of a dysfunctional system. One of them is odor from rot or mildew. The good news is, you can fix it!!! 🙂 If you want to, that is. If you care enough to spend the necessary time, pay attention, become more mindful and present. But sometimes the odor has been there so long that you don’t even realize how badly you smell. To make matters worse, if you are the elected homemaker, you are likely inflicting the mildew smell on those for whom you care. I think that’s probably why it’s so crucial that the person doing the laundry in the home is the person best suited to the task, i.e., the person with the better sense of smell, the more sensitive person, the more attentive, thoughtful, caring person. Before you know it, things will be smelling April fresh in no time! 🙂
