The Olympics are about competition and being the best of the best. It’s a time to showcase the world's greatest athletes and compete on a public stage. Throughout history, competition has been a unifying force of the world. A time to remember that we are all human, we are all competing in the same games. We can all be great. 

As some of the finest forms of the human race compete on the stage in PyeongChang, let us remember to bring some of that home.

Most of us will never be olympic athletes, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t be the best at what we do. Creating our best lives and our best homes. This is a time that reminds us that we can do more, so we should do more. We can do more for ourselves, for the people we care about, and even for the people we don’t know.

Our lives are chaotic, and striving to be the best is hard work. The people who make it look easy are usually the ones working the hardest.  It’s unreasonable to think that we can always be perfect. By nature, the human condition is not perfect. There is a reason the Olympics only happen once every four years, and even then usually comes with it’s own healthy dose of scandal. Keep your home clean, but forgive yourself for the cluttered countertops or one particular junk drawer. Your room can be tidy, and still have one chair piled with laundry. Workout, but don’t break up with pizza and doughnuts.

Being the best you can be radiates. It spreads and inspires those around you. Our homes are a place where we should feel comfortable and be recharged to put our best selves forward. Setting your home up to best utilize your space and creating a good environment for you and your family may not be the same as winning a gold medal. But it does set you and your loved ones up for success every day. If you can’t be your best you at home, where can you be?

We love to think that we are in control of our lives. That we make our own decisions and create our own fate. Our country was founded on this notion of free will and choosing your own fate. But what happens when fate chooses you?
