I've just finished a fairly major remodel of my home. At first it was just a pain-in-the-butt lot of work, and it interfered with my training. After a short while I began to see it as a kind of misogi.
I had been very keyed into training and work for a lot of years, and had let my house go; this was a good chance to clean up some of that karma and "weed my garden", restore a bit of balance to my life. After I began to see it that way, it got a bit easier.
I thought that was an interesting thing. But it's nice to be back training.
