Time for Redesigning your Home…and your Life!

Make this year the year to get yourself on track.  Set some goals, do some good, make it happen.  Enjoy life more.  Learn lots.  As we enter 2012, let’s think about what we can do with “this” year. Some things in our life happen by chance, and some things happen by design.  So make this year the year that everything counts…it’s the year to “re-design” your life.

Always forefront in my mind is to create a home.  Really.  Be proud and grateful for your home, everyday…and make it a great place to be.  Tackle your rooms, one by one, and address the problems presented to you.  Choose soothing paint colors that you love!  A good scrub-down and a fresh coat of paint is great to lift your spirits.  If that room is a dumping ground for old furniture, kid’s outgrown clothes, and paper piles–guess what??  It’s time to de-clutter.  Set up a system to remove the stuff you don’t need.  Love your recycling program.  I am so happy every Thursday when my guys come to pick up all that junk that just clutters up my garage…and my life.

Challenge yourself to re-use articles in your home in a new and fun way.  Up-cycle some photo frames, a night stand, or even a lamp with a few coats of paint.  Need new decor??  Check out vintage and second hand stores for some steals.  On a recent stroll through a store filled with vintage stuff, I found two designer frames and a small woven tapestry.  Sooo exciting!!  With a plan to decoupage beautiful paper into the picture frames, I am assured to create items that are unique and gorgeous…all for $15.00!

When we talk of creating peace and harmony in your home, its important to work on that for yourself, too.  There are many great life coaches and sevices to help you with creating personal happiness.  Take time each day to sit quietly.  Make a concious effort to have some quiet time. There is a very real problem with being tuned in all the time to all the electronics and technology available to us…so it is imperative for your health and the health of your children to make time for quiet.  Try something new…take a yoga class or maybe that photography course you’ve been thinking about for so long.  Reach out to a friend or neighbor that may need your support.  Volunteer some time to help others.

Realize that all of these steps are the building blocks to building your happy, peaceful life.  You get back what you put out.

Make 2012 fabulous!!
