“When we nourish ourselves with good people, projects, surroundings, scenery, love, magic, beauty and self care, we radiate light, into the world and continually sharpen our vision, perception, and clarity all at once. This in turn spreads to other beings which spreads to even more. Remember that one tiny drop can raise an ocean. Keep wanting. Desiring. Doing. Breathing in the sweet things.” Victoria Erickson
I am endlessly impacted by my physical surroundings. We constantly absorb the energy around us whether we realize it at the time or not. I can not rest or relax if the house is a mess. If even the smallest thing in my office is not sitting well with me I can’t be productive.
When we nourish ourselves with good (physical space, relationships, podcasts, books, scenery) we put good out.
Our kitchen was bugging me. It was dark and sad and didn’t match the rest of our light and airy home. With a little paint and a lot of work we changed all that.
Now our physical space makes us smile. The white cabinets and grey floors make cooking a dream. I no longer want to stay out of the kitchen, that’s the first place I want to go.
What in your life is weighing on you? A toxic relationship? A room full of clutter? It may be impacting more than you know.
You have the power to change your surroundings. What a gift and privilege that is. Be thankful for that gift and change what you can, with what you have, where you are.
