Fixing the Stuff in Your Home

A lesson is here to be learned about fixing the everyday items you have laying around your house. I speak for myself when I say that there are many useless items in my home and when they break I throw them away. There’s a solution to this problem, I think we can all agree. And so I am here today to represent the solution to accumulating broken goods in our homes.

When the sun is setting and you’re sitting on your porch wondering how your grandchildren will fair in this strange new world, what do you think is more important, all your decorations and literature or the health of the flesh and blood that you wish to see prosper? It’s very strange that we wish the best for future generations after we place all our resources to help people who are alive today. I’m not afraid to admit I wish the best for myself while I’m alive and that’s why I keep my household appliances in shipshape condition. I can cook a turkey when I want to because my oven works and I can freeze 30 pounds of fish because my freezer works and whenever one of my home appliances doesn’t work I can call a local appliances repair company to fix it and, wow, the problem is solved.

When it comes to fixing your home appliances you should either learn how to fix it yourself by watching videos like the one above or hire your best local appliance repair companies. Computers can be repaired by computer repair shops and toilets can be fixed by handymen, but when it comes to you and your home and what you can fix by yourself you must learn how to fix things around your home without relying on others to do it for you. That’s why my aunt used to say “never bother if it ain’t broke” and I would always listen. When something in your kitchen breaks, be it a microwave or a clock, you better know how to fix it or your only two other options are learning how to fix it or calling your local professionals. That’s why I always say to get used to fixing things around the home because you’ll never know when that knowledge and experience can help yourself or indeed help a stranger who could use your services.

Where I’ve been staying lately in Kamloops British Columbia, for example, I was trying to repair a broken dishwasher in my aunt’s kitchen. When I stressed out to the point where my aunt just called Appliance Repair Kamloops to get the problem solved without more worry, I realized how useful it is to have the skill to fix everyday things around your home. I’ve been saving up to full hours in my daily schedule because old appliances that never worked are now working.

This is partly why today you’re even reading this. That dishwasher changed everything for me, and now it’s impacting my blog. In the past week I’ve repaired more objects around my home than I’ve repaired in my whole lifetime because I’ve never appreciated this skill as much as I used to growing up. It’s amazing what perspective can do to adjust your physical actions in the world.

Another part of the reason I’m stressing the importance of learning how to fix everyday things is because many people when they watch television think they’re learning but don’t ever actually apply what they learned in the world. They can watch documentaries on science and space but never actually do anything with it besides pretend they’re a scientist to their friends or explode their opinion everywhere. I’m not here to do that today. This is all about the importance of application I was talking about a while back. When you learn to repair a toaster for the first time, you’ll know how to repair that appliance for the rest of your life and that skill is an asset that can benefit you and people around you when you don’t expect it.

In the end, fixing everyday things will always be something that other people besides you will know how to do. But by learning how to fix them yourself you can help others and apply that skill to future situations in your household. This is something I’ve been pondering over more in the past few days and I think this skill is more useful than many people realize. I’m so glad I can fix my own washing machine. I can fix my own fridge and my whole household is proud of me. I hope other people get to use this easily attainable skill in their own lives. Thank you.
