If you have a new home or are moving into a new one, you may have been asked to paint it. Painting your home is a big deal. I know what you are thinking.
Painting your home is probably one of the biggest decisions you will make in your life, and I can’t tell you how many people have asked me to explain the finer points of painting their homes. But this is one of the most confusing ones. First, you have to decide on the paint color. Then you have to decide on the size of the paint brush and the amount of paint to put on. Then you have to decide on the paint job you want to make.
I am a big proponent of painting your home in a variety of tones. It can make your house stand out in a way that a plain old one color may not. For example, a white color can be used in a room with darker colors and vice-versa. Or if you just want to give your home a change of appearance, you can paint the door jambs a different color or put a coat of gloss on the window frames for a more polished look.
I’ll be honest. When I started out, I thought I was pretty much on top of the game. I used to play in the park and see everything with a million eyes, so I didn’t really think about what I could do with my life.
Yes, the ability to notice your surroundings is an important skill. But it’s also crucial if you want to be able to take on the role of someone else’s hero. When people think of a hero, they think of a person who has a mission or a goal in mind. They may not necessarily be looking to do something heroic in their own life.
It’s why most people love videogames. Playing videogames lets us take on our other selves as we play. We play as a character or an avatar. In a typical videogame, you play as the hero. You do things that make others like you. It’s a way of having control over our own lives.
In a world where everything is made up, everything is based on our imagination, it is important to take inspiration from the things around you. For instance, if you see a tree and think, “I want to be the tree,” you have no trouble doing it. But if you see a tree and think, “I want to be the guy that’s standing beneath it,” it’s a whole different story. It may not make sense, but that’s okay.
The reason why people do things is because they want to feel like they are part of something bigger than themselves. It’s a way of having control over our own lives.
We all need to take some sort of action to keep ourselves from being at the mercy of our ego. Our ego is the sense of control we feel when life is going well or bad, or when we’re not the center of our universe.
The ego is like a balloon that is up for air and then bursts when we’re not around. What happens when we don’t have a sense of control is that the ego becomes our biggest enemy. The ego is a powerful force that can pull down anyone in the world. Just because we’ve been given a degree of control does not mean that we can or should take on our own life.
