Exactly the book I needed

I have been looking for a book like this for years. By chance, I decided to browse the bookstore today and found this book. I must admit I have only read the first chapter but I already feel a shift in how I view housework. I am a single mother of four kids and have two dogs, two cats, several fish, and a guinea pig. Doing all the chores is overwhelming and I am always frustrated with how mundane it all is. Zen and the Art of Housekeeping teaches that these things are not mundane. Instead, keeping your house clean and orderly is a spiritual practice. It shows your love for your family, your love for your home, and your love for yourself. It's an inside out approach rather than just simply telling you what to do. The idea behind the book is changing how you think about housework. Housework haters like me need to change our attitudes. Chores have to be done and can be be done easier with a positive attitude. What's also great is that this book is based on authentic Zen Buddhist principles. There is no fluff here. But it is practical too and encourages having a system. (For help in developing that system I suggest reading Sink Reflections by the Flylady or Sidetracked Home Executives by by Pam Young and Peggy Jones.)
