We`ve been having a little Grand Desing marathon with my man lately. Last two weeks, every morning when we`ve happened to wake up before our little daughter Mila (soon to be 5 years old) we`ve stolen a little time to drink morning coffee and watch together one episode and we just talk about how nice it has been to spend a little time together at mornings, rather than evening when you are a little bit tired already… Isn’t that how we parents usually do? We spend time together after children go to sleep?
That`s why I love about being an entrepreneur, to be able to challenge those so-called normal daily things to live a more fulfilling life.
And you can imagine, after watching few episodes – my mind is exploding with new ideas according to our home 🙂
Watching this tv-series I realized that the very first reason why people started these huge project was that they were inspired by the gorgeous view. The location was everything to them. The surroundings and beautiful calming environment made a great difference into their lives and I firmly believe that the quality of our life can dramatically get better or worse depending on how peaceful we can be with our surroundings.
Is your home a place where you can feel rested, happy?
Or when you look around, do you see unfinished things which make you feel bad and lazy?
I think about my home in a way that it`s kind of my “hotel”. I want to feel good and relaxed in my home. I don`t want to live in a place which feels unfinished all the time (and I do know how that feels – not very inspiring!) I go to a holiday for fun and new experiences, not because I have to get out from my home that I can relax.
We moved to a new home a year ago and I realized some time ago how much there still were things that I haven`t take care of. So, I made a list of those things and step by step I`ve been making these things my new reality. And it`s been such a fun project!
One of the biggest things on my list is, to decorate our outdoors sauna cottage as a place where we can relax, barbecue at summer, drink coffee with friends and I can even work or write my blog when I want to change the scenery. I want it to be something beyond ordinary. Our cottage is surrounded by forest just on the edge of our yard and it truly needs to be decorated from the inside too before it can become its full glory 🙂 And I feel more than lucky to have a place like this to enjoy and it has become very important for me.
I challenge you to take a piece of paper and a pen and write everything down that has bothered you lately in your environment!
Write down all the things that hang in the air right now and takes your energy. All the things that make you think; that should have been done.
It only takes a few minutes to write that list but, you will immediately feel better, relief and get clarity. Then put those things in the importance order, most important as a first one etc. Then step by step do those things. Is there something you can do right away? It will have a powerful positive impact on your life`s every aspect!
You are creating energy for yourself and what could be a better time to do this than a new beautiful Spring?
