If you’re living in a rental that you can’t be bothred to furnish, if you’re putting any part of your life on hold until you’ve fixed yourself, if you are focused on many great things but have a lingering sense that it’s not the right time to move forward… You’re not alone.
So many people don’t create a home for themselves for a monstrous amount of reasons pegged on time, money and the big one…” something better is coming soon, so I better not get too comfortable.”
Over the last ten years I’ve found that the same thinking that’s so common it’s wild leads to a waiting game…. and the waiting takes on it’s own life, helping to keep a lot of things stuck in inertia, waiting for the right time to move forward.
I know that it’s still not common to think that your home is a relection of your life, but I’m seeing big headway in this idea becoming a part of our thought processes in popular culture! It’s true. I’ve only and always seen it to be true: your home is a reflection of your life.
And wherever you are waiting in order to make a home happen, you’re likely holding back the magic in lots of life.
It doesn’t take money to make a place where you live into a home all the time, but it may take a little creativity, ingenuity and deep desire to feel grounded and empowered. It doesn’t require painting the walls, but it may require the effort to sort out the clutter or move some furniture, frame some photos or DIY some art.
The reasons I hope you try this aren’t just for the sake of having a beautiful home. That’s obviously an ideal, but it’s not at the coe of all of this. It’s to have a beautiful life. One where you are worthy of great things. One where you’re present. One where life is happening right now, not in a few months or a few years or off in the distance when things change.
Creating a home from the place where you live changes everything.
If you’re waiting for the perfect time to settle in, your wait may be over.
