Your Everyday Home

- Home Is Where the Heart Is -

Thanks for Joing Us Today... 11/2/2021


Hello Neighbor,


Your home means a lot to you and it's a place you can call own. It means you can find a home with your family in your hometown, when you are alone overseas, or anywhere in between. It means the place you long to be. It means that you could be homeless, living in a nomadic life, and find a home everywhere you go in every experience you have. It means you can find a sense of home in a friend's hug, in exploring the unknown, in a familiar tingle of love, in a warm bed or in the midst of a joyful run. It means that your home is wherever you take your heart, and if you are like me and you live with your heart and for your heart, then you will forever be at home.


You will never be homeless, and will always feel at home. We understand your home means a lot to you and it's a place you can call your own. No matter where you are, you have a place that you long to be.


Courage is daring to be brave and bold while staying at home. Since your life at home has changed dramatically, how often do you question your thoughts, your actions, or your motives to do something different? When you don't exercise the ability to test yourself, you may lose not only your confidence, but more importantly you may lose the ability to make necessary decisions. Know yourself and how it affects your family, relatives and friends. Not many people experience life the way they wish it to be. As such, if things don't work out the way you want, don't find someone else to blame. Courage is knowing what you want, then finding out what you need to do to make it happen.


Ask yourself questions about your decorating skills. Then compare your ideas of what you wish to change, to what your budget is for making any changes. After all, having a home filled with items that give you contentment or joy, requires you to know yourself and what seems best for you. If you wish to redecorate your home during these times of stress and worry, courage is most important. Now you must learn to deal with the challenges that have now happened without it being anyone's fault. When working through this new challenge, find your inner strength. Challenges give you a good tool for redecorating your home with self-confidence and a new sense of self-worth. You and the home you live in are important and it's where you want to build the future you desire with your family.


If you're planning to decorate your new home for the first time, don't let negative thoughts get in the way of your progress in doing just that. There's something inside each of us that fuels our motivation, our passion, and our reason to live as best we can. Keep encouraging yourself to take the necessary steps to boost your confidence. That is important. That is what's needed now. It's also a good idea to make a list of things you want to do to decorate your home first. Do you need new storage shelves? Do you wish to highlight one room by including a set of hanging candle sconces? What about adding a decorative mirror or wall clock? Any number of new home décor items will serve your cravings and fulfill your redecorating challenges.


And while in the midst of redecorating, practice peaceful thinking. With a dash of confidence and a good measure of gratitude, you will then be working on filling your life with courage. Remember, you are important, and all others are equally as important.
