This month seems to bring out the organizer in all of us. A new year means a new beginning and clearing the clutter of the past is the perfect way to start. You can’t make room for a new life if you are holding on to the old one. Let go. Especially if they are associated with negative memories. They are only things after all and can be replaced with something that holds positive feelings for you.
What a good quote. It can apply to many things in life. In this case, I am applying it to your decorating plan. You need to be deliberate, or intentional, in your
decision-making or your end result won’t be what you intended or wanted. That picture you have in your head of what you want your space to look and feel like is
important. Knowing who you are, what you want, and where your life is headed will make putting your design plan down on paper so much easier.
Do you have a goal that you want to achieve? Is it realistic? If it isn’t, that’s okay. You can break it down into smaller goals that are easier to achieve. How long have you
been wanting to reach this goal? What has kept you from doing it?
Goals are the steps that draw you toward reaching your dream home. Goals are easily explained, measureable, and have deadlines. if they are simple enough, goals
feed hope and fuel your journey. Focus on realistic goal-setting toward your big dream. Decide what amount of change you can successfully manage right now.
Speaking of goals, I wrote on Monday that I would be showing you what I did to transform the home office image I showed you. I am not quite finished with that so
I will be sharing it with you on Friday. It takes time to find just the right items to fit the vision I have in my head. The same thing goes for you when you are decorating
your home. That is why I created the Design Planning for Real Life series that is going on right now. Sign up here to receive the series in your inbox.
