30 Days of Gratitude…day 27…..

You’ve worked hard all day and now you come home and the house is a mess.

Maybe you feel unappreciated.


Seven Steps to tell yourself thank you, I appreciate you for all you do!


Pick one room in your home and carve out your sacred space.

  1. Paint the walls a happy color
  2. Hang a picture that lifts your spirits
  3. Set up a chair that’s only for you
  4. Add an ottoman so you can put your feet up.
  5. Add a table next to the chair for a cup to sit.
  6. Light up the space with a pretty lamp
  7. Don’t forget the pretty throw.
    This chair says Welcome!

    This is a good way to say thank you to yourself for another great day!

    Gratitude starts at home.

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. Wonderful advice! When my two grown daughter’s moved back in with their children/spouses – FULL HOUSE temporarily… and in order to save my sanity after a 10-12 hr work day, my sanctuary was outside – I would sit for hours in what we call the tiki bar. There you can not see or hear any noises inside the house. Everyone needs a place of their own….

    I am grateful for my daughters and am happy to provide them shelter and a secure atmosphere until they could get back on their feet again, but I was also at peace when all moved out. Now I get to enjoy them visiting and the stillness after all has left.

  2. The ideas are in my head! Actually putting them in place will come a bit down the road. Right now, I have two chairs that I use to sit in when I need to stop the whirling of the world. One was my mom’s, and the other is ‘just my size’. Always, gratitude for the quiet and safety of my home.

    1. Ellen that’s all you need just a comfy spot where you can collect your thoughts and reflect on your day. The plans can always come later when you feel inspired to act on them.
