Do you know anyone who is absolutely UNABLE TO LIVE A BEAUTIFUL LIFE? Unfortunately, I do.
It is one of the saddest things I have ever seen. I have often wondered why some people are able to see beauty everywhere and make something out of nothing and others can't see past the end of their nose. This certainly is not a criticism it is just an observation.
I don't think it is matter of your childhood environment or a case of having money or not. I know plenty of people who had less than stellar childhoods and who barely have two pennies to rub together and they still THRIVE on beauty.
I know I had a extremely difficult childhood and I was never TAUGHT to make MY LIFE BEAUTIFUL. Somehow along the way I picked it up...and I have lived in some pretty dismal places during my lifetime. Yet...I have always made them beautiful in their own way with whatever I had on hand.
Using something in a new way to spruce up my little spot.
Look at your environment......what does it say about you.
Is it clean.
Is it organized.
Do you only keep things of beauty or things that have a purpose?
Do you like hanging out a home?
Do you play music?
Do you light an electric candle or a real one if you can?
Do you have something living in your home...it can be plant or animal..it doesn't matter which..just as long as it needs to be cared for.
"Have nothing in your home that you do not believe to be beautiful or useful."
I believe you home reflects how you feel about yourself. If you have self love....your home will show it. If not...your home will show that as well.
Let your home give you a hug each time you walk in the door. Today I'm sharing a few pictures of special things I have around my home...most of them are not expensive..but just things I love and I find inspirational.
Let's each of us shout from the rooftops how very special our homes are to us.
I think our home will repay us in kind.
