This isn’t about opening up my heart and pouring out deep feelings. It’s about opening up my space and rearranging.
Sometimes I get stuck in a physical or emotional place where I feel there are no options. No choices. It’s like that in many areas of life right now and feels suffocating. It’s a backed into a corner being poked at with sticks feeling. Not a favorite.
I began to feel that way about my room. My space. My corner. It seemed there was only one way for it to be. I had tried many others in the past and always came back to this.
It’s a good way. I love it this way. It is my own cozy corner.
However, it began to feel closed in and cluttered, and, more often than not, the bench became a catch-all for all manner of clothing and such. I was starting to feel backed in.
The carpet needed a good vacuuming, and when I am in this place of emotional turmoil, I like what I can clean and control. I began pulling furniture aside.
The space opened up. I saw possibility and potential.
Calling Coco to come help with the carpet, we pulled and slid and vacuumed and shoved and rearranged.
In the end there was this.
I love the new open space. I love what it says to me about possibility and change in a small, simple way on the outside, when inside my head is crammed and cluttered and stuck.
