Airing Dirty Laundry

Leslie previously mentioned the importance of “creating an environment conducive to success.”  That did not describe our laundry room.  The working end was a mess. And for me,  shame about the current state can be a major obstacle to change.  I bet I’m not alone in this. So, I am airing my dirty laundry with before and after pics of the drying area of our laundry room. You can see why we weren’t using it before.

Now, having looked at it with new eyes and “thinking of it as an adventure, I was able to reclaim the space in under 20 minutes!

About thinkofitasanadventure

We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.
