Advice From a Wise Canadian

My inspiration lately has come from my good friend, the Canadian hockey parent (purposefully not putting name here), as you know. And, actually, the Beatles, but we’ll get into that a little later. One of the most inspiring thing about my friend is that she happens to find her inspiration in every day things. For example, she got his carpets cleaned not too long ago, and that simple chore made her realize that sometimes we start to let things in our life get a little out of control. But when we take the time to notice them, and change them, our lives begin to feel more organized and healthy.

If you think about my friend’s philosophy further, you can see how it truly applies to our lives. Sometimes things go unnoticed. Our carpets are used every day. It’s difficult to keep them clean, especially in my household, when you’ve got kids running around, guests who forget to remove their shoes, and relatives who refuse to remove their shoes. No matter how careful you are with your family room carpets, they always seem to become dirty, because that’s just how life is. But isn’t it refreshing when you get the chance to have them cleaned? I know for myself that I always try to keep them looking freshly cleaned as long as I possibly can in the beginning. And then life happens and you forget to care.

So it made me think… what in my life have I forgotten to care about? What has started to become a dirty carpet in my life? And I know this is different for all of us, but it’s good to think about every once in a while. Time to bust out the ole carpet cleaner, my friends, I’ve got some cleaning to do, figuratively and, well, literally too if I’m being honest.

P.S. – I found out that she actually got her carpets cleaned from another friend of mine. So if you happen to live in Southern Utah, you may want to check them out:
