I’ve taken some big steps and I’ve gone way beyond my comfort zone in the past few weeks! I have been thinking about it for a long time, but, just always thought I couldn’t do it or that it’s not for me. But, I have decided to go for it! I have decided to practice what I preach and to not let fear hold me back! I don’t want the fear of failure, worry of making mistakes, and my lack of time to be excuses any longer.
I spend a lot of time on YouTube now, more than even Netflix. I use YouTube for relaxation by watching various shows purely for entertainment, I use it as a tool for learning new things, plus I use it as a search engine for almost everything I want to find out about.
It was a simple, family wedding with a few close friends. Because the bride’s family couldn’t get here from South Korea on such short notice, we kept it simple, yet, beautiful. A wedding can be done in four weeks time! Decisions have to be made in rapid fire succession, but, at least this way you avoid those painstaking decisions that seem impossible to make! There’s no time for indecisiveness!
I’ve found something that helps me a lot to keep myself focused and eases my day to day stress. I started doing this about six months ago, and, I’ve never looked back. What is it you ask… morning pages, have you heard of it?
Are you trying to get away from plastic bags at the grocery store? I am! I try to remember to always have a little bag with me, and, I get so annoyed when I don’t have one, because I do a lot of unplanned stops at the grocery store.
Yes, I did! I folded my socks, my underwear, my workout clothes, my teeshirts, my pyjamas, and so much more. It’s made me feel so good, that I want to continue to organize, and declutter every other aspect of my life and home!
How to find your home decorating style is really about what makes you feel comfortable, and, what makes you feel a sense of peace and happiness. This is what I’ve determined coming full circle back to my nordic roots. I’m back to wanting a clean, minimalist lifestyle which is something I had, in the first several years of my life living in Finland. It’s seems odd to call it a minimalistic style, though, because, in reality I see it more of a Scandinavian lifestyle, which is made up of clean lines, and an airy feel. But, whatever it is… I’m feeling it now.
