|My favorite thing in Ryan's room ( he used pastels)|
|My favorite thing in the hallway (my daughter's collage)|
|A dear friend gave me this years ago, and I still love it.|
So here's my thought for today... we cling to material things because of the past and because of the future, but what are these things doing for us NOW... in the present moment?
|My favorite corner...|
all the items are dear to me.
|I like the curves |
and I made it!
And yes, some items we once loved like crazy, and they gave us heaps of joy, but we have simply outgrown them... just like my son and his toys. And that's o.k. We have to admit, though, that soooo many items in our living spaces don't really hold much value at all and never did from the start. Or perhaps they did at one time but not anymore. Could you let it go and just hold on to the memory? And that thing that you're holding on to because you might use later... are you really going to? I mean really?
|This little guy gives me SO much joy!|
a present from a dear friend.
Recently, I painted and redecorated my downstairs. Throughout the process, I looked at every single item that I had and decided whether I absolutely loved it or not. I can proudly say that almost all of the decor in my downstairs is stuff that makes me tick... makes me happy... makes my family happy. And wow does it feel good!!! It was an emotional process... a very cleansing and cathartic task... and certainly not easy... but my home feels fresh, and simple, and full of space. And because my home feels spacious, I feel more space. I feel better emotionally and physically. Funny how
|One of our all time favorites!|
Disney... our favorite place on earth...
tea cup ride... hands on the steering wheel
|My son and I on the top of the world.|
Will I have this hanging forever?
Maybe, maybe not... but I will always
carry it in my heart.

|A recent find..|
it spoke to us, and we had to have it!
So, today I intend to be aware of my environment and watch how energies play out in my living spaces. I will let go of the things that aren't important to me or giving me joy IN THE PRESENT so that I can create the space for new and amazing energies to bless our home.

I appreciate your visit!
Have a space-filled, beautiful week!
