I never really thought about it this way, but such truer words have never been spoken. To say Confucius was a smart guy might be an understatement. I try to gain wisdom by reflection and imitation, but experience is still the best teacher.
Happy New Year’s!
I don’t really believe in New Year’s resolution. It doesn’t seem to work for me. I think I generally create a list that says here’s what you will and will not do and maybe that sets the bar a little high for me. Like trying to say I will eat better. Most of us know that we will eventually fail, right? So, what I do instead is make sure I keep trying to eat better. After all, if at first you don’t succeed, try again. So here’s a short list of what I would like to keep achieving:
How true are these words? It’s certainly a reflective thought. I see this in myself. I love to travel and my soul wants to wander. I love to create and my soul fluctuates with my emotions. Color makes me happy and my soul wants to soar. Too much rain and being indoors too long makes me a little depressed. When you think about things in this way, it makes sense that you would want to design your home to make your soul happy and feel inspired. After all, it’s where you spend a lot of time.
I’m not sure who said those words, but it’s like they know me. It’s almost like my body needs some routine, but my soul can’t be tied down. Sometimes it’s hard to know which one to listen to. I only have one of each. Maybe I should listen to my soul. The body is tougher than it lets on. Maybe it can break out of routine for a while. Fortunately, I have a trip coming up. Helen, GA, anyone? If you’ve been there, tell me about it!
