Hello Sweet Friend,
As the New Year swiftly approaches, I thought, there's no better time than now to re-evaluate our homes, apartments, dorm rooms, etc. to see if they truly fit with who we are.
I don't know about you, but living at home means that I still have pieces of furniture in my bedroom that I've had for literal decades. I've made quite the effort to transform my once all pink Barbie themed childhood bedroom, into the apartment-style blush and grey space it is today. But there's always more we can do to ensure that our space is a genuine reflection of us and of our femininity.
But, I want to be clear that no matter where you live, whether it's a studio apartment or a luxurious mansion, you can create a space that is warm, inviting, and that welcomes feminine energy. Remember, it's not about how much you have, it's about taking the utmost care of what you already have. My mom always says that God won't bless you with more, if you don't care for what He's already given you.
That said, gratitude should be a priority.
I'd also like to remind you that this is not about buying things. As someone who is working towards becoming a homemaker, one of the attributes I'm trying my best to adapt is frugality. With the picture perfect homes that I'm sure we've all seen on Instagram, our first instinct can often be to go out and buy new things. But I would challenge you to try looking at what you already have, in a new way. Are there things you can repurpose? Can you paint that old jewelry box a different color to give it a fresh new look?
Always consider how you can reuse things, before running out to buy more.
Another thing to consider, is what your personal style is now. Who are you today? Chances are, this year probably changed you in ways you weren't expecting. Perhaps you've discovered a love for yoga, or for taking care of house plants. What are the new hobbies you're interested in, and how can you incorporate these new and exciting changes into your space?
The place where you dwell is intended to recharge your feminine energy. It is intended to refresh your spirit and give you the strength you need to go out and face the world. Your space is meant to be a place of respite and safety. So how can we incorporate these things? How can we create this feminine sanctuary?
Let's begin with Step 1: Blessing The Space.
This might only be for people who are spiritually inclined like myself, but I firmly believe that blessing your space is so very important. When you think about how many people have been in and out of your home, you must also remember that thos
