Metaphoric Construction, Remodeling or Deconstruction ~ By Janette Stuart

Janette is a fellow member of  The Wellness Universe, just one of the many heart-centered bloggers who have found a home there.

In this piece she is likening an important local construction project to the work she has done to redesign herself and provides us with a list of items she had needed to consider in the redesign and a reminder to be patient with delays and cost over-runs and to give yourself time to rest and relax along the way. Note – we don’t see much change on the outside for some time.

During my own spiritual “metaphoric construction, remodeling and demolition project”, similar events took place.

……Here are some items I wanted to consider for my own metaphoric construction project.

1.      What limiting beliefs did I hold which I wanted to let go of?
