let’s keep things simple this monday, shall we? i love these kinds of calming still life vignettes. i tend to think a clean, clear space opens the mind and allows us to soak up fresh, new ideas and keep our creativity sharp. have you ever read the book the artist’s way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity?  my friend bri started reading it recently and i had read it years ago so i’ve decided to dive in and re-read it — the perfect thing for self-quarantining. it’s got some wonderful thought-provoking ideas including the practice of ‘morning pages’ — essentially you sit down each morning and empty your thoughts onto a blank page in a running stream of consciousness. the idea being to clear your mind of clutter, enabling it to fill with more creative thoughts. i feel like these rooms can do something similar. free your mind and everything will follow. also, yesterday i was listening to oprah’s super soul podcast on gratitude (so helpful!), and it said that if you can write down a few things each day (new things every day) that you feel grateful for, after 21 days you’ll really feel a shift and feel much more positive about your life because you’re coming at your life from a place of abundance, rather than loss. i love that idea and have been putting it into practice in my daily journal. here’s to listening in the stillness and seeing the world in new ways — what better way to start than a fresh, clean and still slate?

  1. Wow! These spaces are stunningly beautiful. It is always a great idea to practice gratitude each and every day and writing down 5 things you are grateful for each day is a wonderful practice.
