The least of us…

Let us talk about building homes, homes that positively impact the world. From which our family, our children can go and fulfill their purpose in life. Homes that create spaces to rest and find sanctuary. Homes that inspire us to learn and create. Homes that serve us and not the other way around.

An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field – Niels Bohr

However, at the moment I am intentionally working towards this goal and not quite there… so how is it that I can blog about building homes? I have stories to share and yet I am in no way an expert in this field. My children are still very small. It was at this point that I read the words of Niels Bohr, which he clearly wrote for me in this moment. ‘An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field’. There is at no point I will ever become an expert because home building, let alone parenting, are such huge fields.

As needs and wants are constantly changing so too are the things we must do to create the home we need

I am not even sure it is possible to have built a home. As needs and wants are constantly changing so too are the things we must do to create the home we need. Rather than being disillusioned by intentionally working towards an unobtainable goal. Let me refocus the goal. We are working towards intentionally building a home in order that our family can fulfill their purpose (and we our purpose).┬áThis is hopefully an achievable goal – it is a goal I am working towards.

And since there is no time like the present, I with my intention and no expertise, one of the least qualified, am going to write a blog about my journey to create a home. In that I am at least qualified as I am the only person who has lived my life! There is a proverb that reads ‘A wise woman builds her home’, so it is here we will start building a home one small step at a time.
