Dear Diary…Day 23

I had the thought that I might run out of things to get rid of in 27 days. That would be 729 things!  Interesting that 729 has the 27 plus the 9 in it! Where’s Socrates when I need him?  Aristotle? Confucious?

I realized that there was still more for me to do, feng shui wise….


Put the door to your room along this area.  My door is in the bottom right corner, or Helpful People area.

Lay this template over your room with the door along the bottom.  Depending on your room, your door will fall into the Wisdom, Self, or Compassion area.  This will help you understand where your areas of a room that need attention fall in the Bagua or grid.


I had been thinking about this corner, the relationship corner, and how there was still some work to be done there.

I had been intending to remove the things that were looming over head on top of the book cases. It felt heavy and was affecting me every time I passed by it.


Last week, I also noticed that I had an old photo album of a past relationship in the bookcase.  I’m not sure that I want to discard the photos, because it was a good memory.  I did discard one of the photos from a Christmas past.  He had given me a non-stick, omelette pan for my gift.  Needless to say, it wasn’t very romantic, and I was disappointed, and did not want to hold that memory in my relationship corner anymore.


Another thing that I noticed is that I had a single lady sitting right on top of my bookcases!  Feng Shui rule for relationship corner, is if you want a relationship, do not have pictures or statues of single people all over your house!  So, I moved this lovely lady as well.  She will probably go into the wisdom, inspiration corner.


Sometimes, going through old, buried, forgotten things, can bring up some of those old feelings that are still attached to us.  So, we have to be willing to feel those emotions again, then decide if we are willing to continue holding on to them, or be willing to let them go.

The reason that I bring this up, is because, as we reach for the joy that is ours to have, there may be some forgotten memories that my be holding us back from that joy.  We can bless those memories, put them in their proper place, or just  release them to the Universe.  This or something better!


One more thought on this area, was that I have a lot more books to send out to the Charity shop, as my relationship with books has gotten out of hand!LOL

My affirmation for today is…

There are no lost opportunities in Divine Mind, as one door shut another door opened. (Florence Scovill Shinn)

P.S. I was inspired to start painting a little nightstand that I’ve had.  See my inspiration below.


Next week, I’ll share how I fixed the legs with wood putty and hopefully there will be more progress on it.

Please sign up so you don’t miss a post.  I plan on sharing my secret recipe for the green smoothie that is helping me lose weight!

How many of us long for our own comfy cottage in the woods? I know I do! We can make our own comfy cottage, right here, right now, no matter where we live. I'm a mother of two, grandmother of two boys, interior designer who thinks out-of-the-box, up cycler, and interested in just about anything related to living comfortably and finding contentment, connecting with the Great Spirit in the natural world and respect for all beings who walk the earth.

  1. We don’t sit and wait for it to come to us, we don’t exhaust ourselves chasing after it, we gently, softly “reach for the joy that is ours to have…” Powerful.
