How To Express Yourself At Home
Let me illustrate my point by taking our homes as an example. Our homes are a necessary part of our existence.
Imagine creating the most beautiful home and expressing who you were in that home instead of filling it with stuff that’s trendy and that someone else told you you should have. Imagine being defined by the environment you created around you. The better you cared for that environment and the people in your environment the better and more harmonious and beautiful your environment becomes. And the easier it becomes to live in that environment.
The Aborigines did not have a lot of possessions but they were compelled to create beautiful things. So they started with what they needed and then they embellished it. I think that’s really pertinent to us trying to create our own simple lives. We are all creative beings and we crave beauty. We also express what’s in our environment.
How Do You Want To Express Yourself?
So if we are filling our environment -in this case our home- with useless stuff that sits around doing not much, how will we express that? How do you express an environment full of useless stuff? Possibly as anxiety or a feeling of uselessness or perhaps a sense of being trapped?
Think about that, how do you want to express yourself? And does your home – your immediate environment allow you to do that? And if it doesn’t what can you begin to change so that you can express yourself authentically?
I’ll leave you with that today. Thanks for listening and I’ll talk with you again really soon.
