I’ve come to the conclusion that I must have pretty things in my life. It’s not an option for me to NOT have pretty things surrounding me. I used to deny this side of me, thinking it was impractical or childish of me to want to decorate, re-decorate, and organize every aspect of my living space, work space, you name it.
But over the course of my personal journey I realized that I need to be surrounded by beauty, and by things that take my breath away.
I need to wake up to a beautiful room. Thats who I am. It makes me happy. My soul stirs when I see a space in my home that is serving a purpose, but also looks gorgeous. That is my sweet spot.
And I’ve come to the point in my life where I know I need to make myself happy. Noone else is going to do it for me. And no external things can actually provide me with real happiness. But when I am happiest, I am creating beautiful spaces, I am admiring beauty. I know how to make things more beautiful, this comes naturally to me. Its who I am.
I need to have pretty things around me, for me to be me.
So, that is exactly why, my desk, HAS to be gorgeous. I need it, to feel inspired. I feel inspired, by making it gorgeous. So it definitely goes hand in hand.
My gorgeous desk is where my ideas flow, and my hands create magic. I love how I feel when I am in this zone. I love what I do. I love who I am, when I am here. And it is because of the beauty that is around me.
So no, it is not childish, or impractical, to crave beautiful things. It is not immature or selfish, to give myself the beautiful things I desire. It’s my gift to myself. I deserve it.
