I can say, without a doubt, that I am so blessed to have the job of my dreams. I get to build and create amazing things everyday then share them with you. “Living the dream” as they say. Over the seven years of being on television and hosting home improvement shows, I’ve have built up an amazing amount of gratitude. It’s quite a feeling to give someone a new kitchen, bathroom or yard in a matter of days and watch their eyes light up. You can actually feel the positivity and happiness in the air when I show them their new space. It is awesome to say the least. It got me thinking, why I couldn’t share that same positivity boost to those who really need it most? That is why I started a non-profit called “Build For Love”. It gives kids who are recovering or suffering from serious illness a room remodel to boost their spirits and hopefully help them heal faster. You can check it out at www.buildforlove.org.
My point here is to not just tell you about my charity (although we can always use donations), but to try and give you a little boost in your own renovation endeavors. Next time you are getting ready to take on a project, think about not only about loving the outcome, but also loving the process. For every nail hammered or screw driven, be grateful for being able to create and use your abilities to improve your space. I found that when I pour positivity into the process, my creativity flourishes. A positive mind is an open one and you will be able to build things you never thought possible. One of my favorite sayings is “If you can dream it, you can build it”. Spring is just around the corner, so let’s get ready to build!
