Cleaning is bliss.
Of course, I struggle to enjoy it at times. I burst into tears when a vacuum stops working, and I let out a little growl of frustration when I accidentally miss the trashcan while emptying the vacuum's contents. Or when I walk into a house, trip on the doorstep, and spill my coffee on the rug. There are weeks that I feel exhausted and cleaning is less than enjoyable and as I shake out rugs and wipe down showers, I imagine the other jobs I wish I had.
And the time cleaning gives me! Hours at a time of opportunity to listen. My cleaning time has become so valuable to me - podcasts have become my dear friend. :) Outside of cleaning, I do not think I would otherwise find time for listening to podcasts. What a sad thought!
My favorite podcasts this month:
- The Simple Show by Tsh Oxenreider
- setapartgirl by Leslie Ludy
- Bon Appetit Foodcast
- 99% Invisible
- The Dave Ramsey Show
I'm so thankful for right now. I'm not sure how long I will continue to clean homes, so I want to appreciate, accept and enjoy the blessing it is to me at this time.
