monday motivation_well done is better than well said

 

We live in an age of of rhetoric and empty words.  Work environments have plenty of people piping up in front of the boss and pretending to be team players.  Did you pay attention to the quality of the task and how it affected another?  Did you huff and puff or did you get the job done?

Quality and cooperative behavior with respect and integrity for all leaves a positive lasting impression.  As the song says, a little less talk and a lot more action.

Some of the best time I have spent has been between two words.  While one idea exists, another can enter and create a new string of thoughts.  For me, reading is a joy, for others, they prefer a more auditory experience.

Just speaking with another person can spark a brand new idea to pursue.

In whatever way you can learn, your willingness to participate in the process, means you can always find something novel wherever you are ~ right now.

Have a wonderful week!

you are allowed to be a masterpiece and a work in progress

If you care anything for home décor and design, then perhaps you have an HGTV addiction like I.  Each time Joanna Gaines does her reveal, I am amazed at the finished product.  How someone can see so much creativity in a boxed-in space always boggles my mind.  Also, I have enough Canadian content, that I would gratefully and willingly welcome any Property Brother to my home.  To the Scott brothers, and those designers who can turn older into something fabulous and new, I am accessible and ready for change.

Each of these shows takes something old down to the foundation, the good bones, and turns it into a vision of beauty. Respecting your story, and creating new objects to be admired from age, makes your home a sanctuary and a place of loving comfort.

In creating the heart of the home, reclaimed wood is highly desired. Focal walls that highlight the original markings and scars of use, hand-forged iron, and objects of inspiration and affection trigger great appreciation and gratitude.

I am a Fixer Upper too. The scratches, dents, and dings are a part of me that I reveal to those with whom I want to create deep relationships.  Some of my decorative elements are unique, quirky, and very DIY.  Antiques have been given another opportunity to be loved and treasured.  That is what I want too; don’t tell me that I am too old to understand. Rather, it is my experience and resilience through all types of construction that secure my foundation.

Changing perspective, removing the clutter, and adding a fresh coat of color help me to be more inviting and a gathering place for others.  Planting the roots deeply to add appeal to my personal landscape, I can see how much more work I want to do on the façade and beneath.

But, at the end of the day, appreciating the abundance I have received and seeing it in a new light, will help me to live happily ever after.  Or, at least until my next redesign.
