Simplicity in form and function
This is a very beautiful and somewhat minimal space - but the use of a splash of colour makes it feel somewhat more inviting and adds that splash of fun and adventure
If I could move in tomorrow - I'll probably add lots of plants and greenery in oversized pots
But nothing more. I actually dreamt I was buying an apartment last night, and I even dreamt signing for the keys, and the security fob to get in and out of the building. My apartment was number 617 or 620 and a friend bought an apartment on the floor below me. I was getting really excited about unpacking my lovely kitchenware and white pots and ceramic wok ....
And then I went to say hello to someone else who was already moving into their flat - and they had so much stuff, and a whole stack of knives and forks and spoons that he was packing away all mixed up together and putting them into a square shelf ... and I thought to myself ... isn't this a bit odd?
Anyhow a nice feeling that excitement - and I want to keep that alive into today and also into the weekend and harness this energy and plough it back into my own projects again - reclaiming that ever so important work life balance - but my oh my how have I missed it!
Sometimes we put in so much, so many hours and often - there is not much to gain at the end of the day - but exhaustion, frustration and feeling rather stuck in a rut. It is up to is to reclaim that balance, to recharge property, to not over promise - but to still deliver. And when we have a happy worklife balance - we feel happier and more energized and recharged, and we allow ourselves the time to focus on what's really important in our lives and how we can have a valuable input into the lives of others
And also sometimes we need to realise when it is time for change
And then start making them happen!
