It’s been a long and reflective road and I start by thinking of all the roads that led me to where I am today in Lebanon TN; Roads I sometimes wish that I had not taken or decisions that I wish I had used wisdom on making. Yet I know as stupid as some of them were, if I did anything different, I wouldn’t be able to look into the faces of my precious children, as they would not exist.
When I become reflective on my past, I start thinking of my favorite line from the movie It’s a Wonderful Life. It occurs when an older, much wiser man complains to a young couple that ‘youth is wasted on the wrong people.’ It always makes me stand back and look at all the ways I could have made my long road less bumpy, yet the wisdom that comes from experience has led me to be able to effectively help others. I have a compassion that just rolls out of me and makes me realize that I haven’t been hardened to the needs of others.
People would often call and ask me for help with any project they would have and it has always given me a deep satisfaction knowing that I could immediately jump in and solve their problem by making their house comfortable. Add in my love of cleaning and being organized and I could help them to continue to delight in their rooms and learn to be clutter free.
Whenever I drive by a house that’s been on the market for a long time, I just want to jump out of the car and ask if I there is some way I can help. My husband has had to restrain me a few times because sometimes people can’t see they need help (and just imagine answering your door to someone just begging to ‘re-design’ your house so it will sell better).
What it comes down to is that I just want to see people happy and not being stuck waiting to move and hoping for a sale. I really hate seeing house prices reduced because the house didn’t have the ability to draw people in. Really, I’ve started the business for all of us. I want to help you make your road less long and less bumpy in Lebanon, TN.
