saying sorry in the wrong context

I am working on learning this one too. What we point out in our interactions with other people is so revealing what we focus on internally.

We all work so hard to make our homes beautiful, relaxing spaces where we are at home. So what if I told you that by merely uttering one little word, you could derail all the positive, beautiful attributes of your home in the eyes of your guests? 


"Sorry about the mess." "Sorry it's so hot in here." "Sorry, we're out of milk." Sound familiar?
Listen up, your home is yours to do with as you please. Not only is there no need to apologize for the state of your space, but doing so will only cause people to notice the very thing you just pointed out!
Picture this: you're walking into a friend's home for the first time and, just as you begin to admire her perfect wall color or her great armoire, she says, "Sorry about all those dishes in the sink." What's the very next thing you're gonna look at? Those dirty dishes!
So, c'mon folks. Focus your attention on what you love about your home and your guests will too.
