Day 176 – Do It Yourself

“When you live for a strong purpose, then hard work isn’t an option. It’s a necessity.” – Steve Pavlina

I’m all for hiring a friend or local business to do something for you when in need. However, let’s not get lazy about it, okay? I don’t know about you, but I was raised in a household where we did everything the cheap way and the hard way; by means of hard work. We didn’t have a lot, so we did a lot of things ourselves and it made us proud of the work we accomplished. Now that TJ and I are able to afford to hire people to do things for us, I have that voice in the back of my mind that would rather do it myself than hire someone else. TJ doesn’t have the same background as me so it’s hard to come to an agreement on certain things like this. I have come to terms with certain things can be hired for while others I feel are important to do ourselves. At least once. You know why? Because we are in an age where people would rather hire someone else to do something they don’t feel like doing… or don’t know how to do. It’s embarrassing how long people can go without knowing how to do a rather simple task.

Well, now that we are in an era where many people are on unemployment due to covid and there’s hardly anyone out there to do these handy tasks. Well, now what? You are now stuck relying on someone else for a job that may not get done because they’re short staffed. If you just knew how to do it yourself, you may not be so desperate to find someone to pay them to do it. Learn something new and don’t be afraid to do physical, hand on, or messy tasks. Times are changing right now and it’s important to be able to grow ourselves still and have a sense of pride in our work.

Item 176 of 360+

Today’s decluttered items are wedding items we purchased and will be going to a friend who will be getting married later in the year. We hope they can use them and then pass it on / pay it forward to the next bride and groom.
