Washing Fences

I just spent the last four hours power washing our fence.

We are getting ready to list our house on the market but our fence is old and dirty. It has that weathered grey look to it that sends a vibe of tired and drab. A good power wash will push out the dirt that has been collecting over the years and give it that fresh clean look that grabs the eye.  

Around hour two of mindlessly spraying water it hit me…

Our life is like the fence and the dirt represents the things that are holding us back

See, we collect “dirt” in the fine grains of our lives that weigh us down. It suffocates us and makes us feel trapped. It prevents our true inner beauty from shining through. If left “untreated”, it will eventually take its toll causing us to rot from the inside out.

Every once in awhile we need to power wash our lives. We need to remove the dirt that is preventing us from being who we want need to be! That dirt might be the clutter that is taking up your time, baggage you can’t let go of, or distractions that are preventing you from achieving the life you dream of!

Washing the fence is something I knew must be done for years but I just kept putting it off.

“Oh, it’s not that bad”

“I can do it another day” 

But before you realize it, days turn into weeks, weeks turn into years. You open your eyes and your fence is filthy.

It’s not too late though. Your fence can be saved. It might take just a little extra elbow grease and a little more time, but that dirt can be washed away. It just takes initiative and the desire to do some cleaning!
