Mondays are tough. It’s hard to get up and get going after a few days off. It’s especially hard to get up and get going when you’re on your way to work. Well, the PrairieMod Squad wants to help make your Mondays a little more engaging. We want to give you something to look forward to as you start your week. So we’ve decided to roll out a column we call “The PrairieMod 10.” Each month we’re going to focus on one of the 10 Principles we’ve identified as part of the PrairieMod lifestyle and post about it Mondays.
Principles? What does that mean?
Principles are unchanging, natural laws. They function regardless of our awareness or obedience to them. We recognize and respect this fact. As a result, the foundation of the PrairieMod Lifestyle is based on Principles (for a quick overview of the 10 Principles, we suggest you check out this Wikipedia entry). Regardless of where you live or how you live, the PrairieMod Lifestyle can help you create a well-balanced home by introducing you to 10 timeless Principles that promote beauty and meaning.
It’s important to note that we did not create or invent the ten concepts covered here. We’ve simply gleaned them from both the words and the work of pioneers that went before us. Through the course of our research, we’ve gone through countless materials that discuss at length the items we will address in this column. Even though these resources all contain interesting and important information, we found most of them to be difficult to navigate and generally not very user friendly. Our goal is to present these Principles in an accessible and engaging way each week for you to enjoy.
In each Monday post, we’ll examine a specific Principle from its historical roots to its functional application in your Modern life. One thing we recognize is that each of us is at a different place in life. Many of us live in condos or apartments. Some have recently moved into older homes that need renovation or some good old T.L.C. Others are in the process of building new homes. Whatever the case may be, these principles can help inform the decisions we make while creating our homes. Each of the 10 Principles we discuss can be taken as a whole. However, if just one of these concepts is applied in our lives we will reap tremendous benefits.
We hope you’ll enjoy this new series and as always, drop us a line and let us know what you think. Who knows, you might actually start looking forward to Mondays!
