Good morning Saturday ~
Good morning friends ~
Good morning life ~
How wonderful would it be to begin our days taking our breakfast in such a wonderful setting as the one above? A breakfast in Paris....the city of light...
....or you may choose whichever other place you wish to be at.
This post is about dreaming, wishing and reality.
Most of us are quite simple people, living ordinary lives, striving for everyday and very often compensating ourselves by dreaming of places, spaces, people, situations far away from us and our realities.
It's not that someone should not dream, as it is such a nice and relaxing thing to do.
Neither that dreams cannot become true.
Off course they can.
Still there needs to be a condition fullfilled prior to beginning making them true.
Accepting our realities.
Taking one step at a time, day by day, examining how our lives are, which parts of it we wish to keep and which parts we wish to silghtly change, totally change or complete discharge from our lives.
And then take a deep breath and begin. Knowing that there will not be only happy moments through the way, that there'll come some discomfort as well, but also having faith that for every difficulty there's at least one reward waiting for us on our ways.
Changing must be one of the most difficult things ever I suspect and can also verify it personally.
Still, the feeling of freshness and hope, the energy that comes along with it are incomparable.
We people are not only strong but also weak, and sometimes try to steal from life a little bit.
How?....by ignoring, by being arrogant, by regarding ourselves more than we actually are, by being preoccupied with what others do, not because we are bad or anything, but simply just too weak to face ourselves and our realities.
and here comes the magic world of Internet. What a delightful world of beauty!
Magnificent pictures here and there, gorgeous spaces all over!
And we look at them, and we bookmark them....and we pin them, like I myself just started to do just a couple of days ago.
How easy is it to get lost in this non pragmatic beauty?
and forget about all the things that we wish to change?
Quite easy I might say.
It's so easy to identify ourselves with something that is not ours, just because we like it, pinned it, or
- the current trend - blog about it.
Now why am I bothering you with all these morning philosophies and not be pulling the plug, going on to take care of our living space, slowly beginning with Christmas decorations & crafting?
Well, I'm about to do so actually, but before I wished to share here with you and my online diary thoughts that I believe might not be only mine, thoughts and considerations that might be crossing your minds as well.
So, if you wish to follow my imaginative trip in styling, interiors, photography and everything I find inspirational you may follow the boards I curate in Pinterest.
From time to time I'll be sharing here some of my very favorites.
But before I start sharing with you awesomenss found in the web,
I'll share with you the recent renovation & redecoration project I undertook, the main reason I recently flew to Greece.
While I'll be presenting this project, I'll also be explaining to you what it is exactly that I do when I cooperate with someone as a decorator, having also studied psychology and how I can help you change your every day realities into something better, without you needing to.....win the lottery!
You may expect this presentation in a few parts starting next week.
Please keep in mind that you'll see a lot of unstyled and not fabulous pictures, especially at the beginning, as I wish you to watch the process and not only the outcome.
So to give you a hint:
We love grey!
I'm wishing you all a wonderful weekend, doing things you love, finding out what you might possibly not like and then taking a little step into changing that.
I'll be around, on and off line, doing exactly the same things I advise you to do.
Till next time,
Much love to you all,
Ivy ~ xx
