A little note for the day: if you don’t really care for or feel disconnected from where you live, it could be time for a change.
The place where we live is a distinct mirror of our inner life. If you feel disconnected from your home, you might be actually more disconnected from your life than you’d like to acknowledge. If we are composed on minds, bodies and, depending on your philosophy, a soul… we need a PLACE to bring those components to life. Place affects us dramatically and reflects us distinctly.
When I say this I hear the following: I am renting, so I don’t want to invest in my place. I am too busy to fix up my place. I don’t know how to decorate. And on, and on.
The above points are all very valid. I certainly would not want to invest money in a rental if I had a solid plan to move into a home I owned in the next few months or even a year, but if you don’t… well, it’s way worth the investment. If you are too busy to fix up your place, perhaps you can hire help? If you think you don’t know how to “decorate” I bet you do know what you like and don’t like, which is a great jumping off point to start collecting a few things you truly love.
If you get into the mindset of “I will have a home when x, y & z are settled in my life…” you may delay a ton of peace, power and pleasure in your life. It’s exactly the same mindset as “I will be happy when I have x, y & z.” Everything is on hold until a magical day that is way off in the distance, and in the meantime, it’s fine to be deprived. that is no way to live! And that sentiment of “it will happen in the distant future” seeps its way into all aspects of your life.
Life is happening right now. You deserve a great home that looks and feels like you. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, but it does need to be a place you love!
