What kinds of kind, encouraging stuff do you say to yourself (I bet it is really, really good!) when you are starting a new project around the house?
I bet you say things like:
"You got this, girl! This is going to be awesome!"
"I can't wait to do this! This is going to be easy and I am going to make this beautiful!"
WAIT A MINUTE. Why are you laughing??
Okay. So, I admit it. I KNOW THAT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING TO YOURSELF is ANYTHING BUT KIND AND ENCOURAGING when you contemplate making changes around your house.
How do I know? Well, you have told me in many, many ways.
I see the uncomfortable looks I get when you ask me a question about clutter. I see the sweat on your brow when you answer the door--you have been rushing around trying to pull things together before I arrive. You have told me the stories about all the things you have done in the past to make your rooms more livable--that didn't work out how you hoped, kinda fell on their face, and took the wind out of your sails--
and you have even said things like:
"Shouldn't I just know how to do this by myself??"
Maybe you have been living in a house that has been disappointing you for years, with its drab rooms, stuff stacked in corners, and lack of pulled-togetherness...
and you have been blaming yourself the whole time, since, you know, you're just supposed to know how to do these things...like intuitively, like without any effort, AND IN YOUR ABUNDANCE OF SPARE TIME.
I am here to tell you that it is TOTALLY OKAY NOT TO KNOW how to clear out draining clutter, pick the perfect paint color that will make a room sing, purchase furniture that will fit in a space and create an inviting conversation area, or know what light fixture would be gorgeous over your heirloom dining table (which you're not quite sure why you've kept all these years, because you aren't sure you really ever liked it anyway...).
Because I know how frustrating draining rooms can be, I just wrote a new little booklet that can help you identify the mistakes we most often make that keep our rooms from feeling like home:

Go grab yours now, and see how the insights it contains can help you to rethink and rework your rooms in a meaningful way. :)
Good luck and enjoy! Blessings to you dear friends!!!
