The Perfect Surroundings That Inspire And Nurture Your Creativity And Joy
The environment in which we live, breathe and make our homes is vital to our health and wholeness. I often think of their importance as I see the accumulation of many unnecessary things in my home. The care and upkeep of these things steals the satisfaction I once had at first possession.
I’ve grown into a different person with different needs. These days I prefer a minimalist — to bare bones lifestyle and daily attempt to get rid of a few things. Unfortunately it’s not as easy as I thought it would be.
Yet, it’s my daily attempt
The image and goal that I have in mind is to make my home like a hotel room or suite. Most of us are comfortable in hotels and feel at our very best in a nice, clean, organized and luxurious environment that hotels often provide.
When I think of a favorite hotel in which I’ve stayed, it’s at a particular writer’s conference location on a beach. I’ve stayed in my share of hotels, but this is by far the one I could hold up in for the duration if need be.
The well-kept, uncluttered rooms, beach, salt water and tranquility — I could definitely live and thrive in that environment.
