The days are gone looking for a few moments of calm and cozy in our chaotic life, we are seeking an overall life balance – looking to live a life that is just enough.
We are more aware than ever of the importance of environmental preservation and requiring more transparency in our surroundings.
This Color Collection combines the softness:
*Quaint Peche, Interesting Aqua
*Filmy Green with the grounding hues of Gray
*Naval which fulfills our desire for calm and balance every day.
Navy and crisp white is such a classic look. There’s something so sophisticated and elegant about the contrast between these two colors, and the designer has really nailed it in this foyer. Sheer navy perfection!
Peace Harmony & Happy Painting!
A Writing Hut … A Favorite chair … An Outside Spot …
I found that finding my own spaces to write helps keep me focused on writing every day. It does not matter what your space looks like to other people as long as it is a place you find clarity, creativity, your sacred space all cocoon inside a cozy retreat – that retreat space could be an extra bedroom – extra space within a room – or a corner of the living room.
I am currently collecting inspiration objects: quotes, sayings, pictures to use for the visualization process to help me on my journey of book writing. I have been reading books about writing books – collecting great tips and inspirational quotes and saying from people that have started on the same path I am currently traveling!
So far this week, I have only missed one day of writing – I found that it helped when I sat my ass down to write, the story was more vivid, more imagery, more details – sometimes taking a step back is a giant leap forward.
Next week, I will post the tips and techniques of book writing that I have collected so far – please stay tuned to my blog for an upcoming Workshop: CREATING A COZY WRITING RETREAT – Finding ways to keep your creativity growing through your environment … Until next time!
Peace & Harmony … Keep Writing, Cheryl
A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart!
Letting go forces us to look at our three strongest emotional drivers: Anger ~ Fear ~ Love.
Letting go means confronting these invisible emotional barriers; bringing them upfront and center – and we struggle against them. It means challenging, irrational and unproductive thinking until you get your head and heart straight.
Letting go of past hurts and injustices that preoccupies our lives – so that we don’t lose that love – again.
With each Goodbye I learn ….
That ANGER is the easiest to understand, but the most difficult to escape, it becomes an internal attachment that can only be broken by communication – a kind word.
That letting go leaves a hole in your life in the shape of the person that left you behind. We usually fill that void with FEAR – fear of the uncertain – fear of failure – fear of future loss. Instead, fill that void with HOPE – hope for the future – hope for new adventures – hope for the ones we love. Fear keeps us grounded, but Hope lifts us above our obstacles, situations and challenges.
Once you let go of Anger and Fear – what’s waiting on the other side is LOVE.
That love for the family you have weaved together through your life. Just so it is noted; you did not work that needle by yourself, God helps you pull the ribbons from the people around you – if you listen carefully. To create this beautiful and colorful blanket of warmth and love that you will pull over you when struggles come. The blanket is always redesigning itself, because with each goodbye you learn to … Let Go!
Peace & Harmony, Cheryl
