Looking through windows

by singlemomseeking on September 30, 2011

For as long as I can remember, I’ve spent a lot of time looking out windows. I was that kid who daydreamed in front of windows. As an adult, I curled myself up into a ball in front of many windows, longing for comfort.

For much of my life, though, I’ve looked through dirty, grimy windows. I never took the time and energy to clean them. (I don’t really know anyone who likes to clean windows.) My half-attempt was too much Windex, which only smeared my view. Looking back, I never did the work it took to clean my windows.

It’s no wonder that I couldn’t see clearly. For years and years, when I walked out my front door, I found myself choosing men who were emotionally unavailable. It has taken a lot of time and exhausting self-reflection to scrub off the grime — so I could see better.

Tell me about the windows you’re looking through:

Can you see out of them? Do you need to spend some time cleaning, too?


On that note, we spent months researching windows for our addition. Our goal was to find stylish windows that reduced energy use in a cost-efficient way. That’s how we found ourselves face-to-face with Serious Windows. Check out the windows we installed this week!

[Nope, Serious Windows did not endorse me to write this post.]

Very clear analogy 🙂 I love the visual also of stepping outside of your own window and looking in. Seeing yourself as you hope for others to see you is the biggest part of the battle.
Thank you for sharing

Live. Love. Learn.
