Okay, I need to release. Woo-sah. It’s nearing the end of the year and I’m somewhere in between planning out December, goal setting for 2016 and still trying to figure out how my 25th birthday (like what?) is approaching. And that’s just the gist of it.
As much as we aim to put our energy into the present and future, we can’t help but reflect on how far we’ve come. Sheeit, we deserve to give ourselves a pat on the back for personal growth. For the longest I’d felt uninspired and just simply too grown for my childhood bedroom. Purple is my favorite color and the idea of having an all purple bedroom was a dream come true for 11-year old Mickie. You remember around that time when all of your girlfriends wanted a pink bedroom? Yea, no.
Fast forward and my deep purple walls are now snowflake white. My colorful sheets are now crisp white and grey. Without going into much detail, my childhood bedroom is well on its way to becoming my sanctuary. I couldn’t be happier. However, this could have happened a lot sooner than last month if it weren’t for a particular mindset. I had a mindset of why invest time and money into redesigning my childhood room when I didn’t plan on living at home much longer. Silly, I know. I failed to look at the bigger picture. I failed to understand the reality of the situation and make do with what I had. And in actuality I was only harming myself even more for holding onto an uninspiring and unfulfilling environment for my “dream” bedroom that’s probably still another year or two down the line.
It’s a combination of making do with what you have, and learning how to make it work for the evolving you to maintain a happy, positive state of mind.
