I took a break from rearranging all the rooms downstairs yesterday to check the updates that were beeping on my phone.
Have you been on social media lately?
Just between us….you might want to press the pause button. It’s a little overwhelming.
Everyone is making resolutions and promising to eat right and get organized and snack on broccoli and start a new diet and grow their own grain and make bread from homemade flour….
….and fly to Tahiti.
I think the whole Tahiti conversation was me. 🙂
Now don’t get me wrong.
I love goals and new projects and resolutions as much as the next person.
I mean….I’m the one in the grocery line reading the top 10 ways to organize your craft supplies.
And I decided that 2015 rhymes with brussell sprouts.
I get it.
Who am I to question anyone’s resolutions?
But just for a moment….I want to shift the paradigm.
Before we start working so hard on improving ourselves.
Before we listen to the top 10 new diets that were all over the morning news today.
Before we decide we’re not speaking ice cream anymore and start using mayonnaise to deep condition our hair and add another skin care product to our regime…..
….can we stop for just one moment….
And remember how amazing we are.
Sometimes we are in such a rush to make ourselves better that we don’t even recognize the amazing that is right under our nose.
You know when you were younger and your mom wanted to take your picture and then she did and you looked at it and told yourself what a lame picture it was and how you didn’t look like a supermodel and your hair was flat and your shoes looked terrible with your dress and how you never ever, ever, ever….
…..wanted to see that picture again.
And then one days years later you found the photo.
And you realized you were so thin and your hair was super cute and the shoes were perfect….
….and you were truly beautiful all along.
But you missed it because you were too busy looking for what you thought needed to be fixed.
Just for today.
We can all go back to resoluting it tomorrow.
Today we are going to remember all the things that make us amazing.
Put down your coffee tell yourself in the mirror or leave it in the comments or tell your friend or your mother or cousin or aunt or the check-out lady at the grocery store….
….what a great organizer, mother, crafter, singer, diyer, daughter, brother, baker, sister, painter, wife, dancer, roller skater, hula-hooper, world-traveler, talker, listener, chef, movie-watcher…
….or friend that you are.
We got this.
We are going to remember what made us into the rock stars that we were in 2014…..
….and show 2015 how it’s done. 🙂
PS These pictures are all snippets of the great room change-up.
I’m posting room pictures later this week.
