Over the past couple of years I tried to ignore the news about the economy and sinking interest in television weren't getting me down. I was cutting back and letting go, all the while telling myself I was being practical, being smart. Then it hit me-I was hiding, hunkering down, hoping to get by without anyone noticing I was struggling to adjust to the times. Startled by the awareness that I was moving further away than ever from the life I was trying to create, I blurted out, like Talking Heads, â€œHow did I get here?!â€
So the past year has been about re-building- my career, my business, my home, my life. And, of course, as I tackle each room I notice myself changing too. Itâ€™s amazing how a little re-arranging can help you see things in a whole new light!
So, it's time to show you my next project: these little messes I call my living and dining rooms.
I've stopped inviting people, stopped enjoying my home. I'm feeling trapped and wrestless- there's too much stuff! Full of leftovers from other rooms, client projects, and flea markets; these rooms are my ticket to making room for more. Yep, Iâ€™m going to clear out everything unnecessary then re-do, re-arrange, and re-organize everything else. May sound a little contradictory, but the lighter my load and the more organized my place, the more room I'll have for building my business, sharing time with friends, and getting ready for aÂ new home in an exciting city somewhere.
Tune in and check out my progress. And maybe make a little room of your own for something new.
