I don’t know what.
The end of January brings about the realization that this is the year I will become an empty nester. It will happen all too soon. Ah, but such is life. Time for a new chapter and new doors to pass through. There were no New Year’s resolutions for me this year….. only making plans for a new beginning that is inevitable for every parent.
Today has brought about thoughts of an artist’s box with all its paint colors and tools just waiting to be turned into something beautiful. Isn’t our lives a lot like that? We have many facets that can be combined into something wonderful. We are never too old to re-create ourselves. Time has not passed me by.
An artist’s box and palette can also be an analogy of decor:
Rooms are art….
Just like art, they evoke many moods and feelings: vibrant or subdued and energetic or relaxing, etc.
And, just like an artist’s blank canvas, rooms are our canvases until they become living collages. Our rooms are a myriad of the objects and ingredients of our lives that make up the total space. It’s how we choose to put the components together that dictate our end results.
Many great French artists have colored our world with inspiration. Inspirations that we can draw upon as we create new things.
I will be traveling to France this fall and will be making plans for some exciting career moves. What else could be in store? Maybe an Etsy shop or maybe re-entering the realm of antique mall selling. We’ll see.
The bible says there is a season for everything.
Where are the winds of change taking me? All I know is, my passion has always been interior design. I love everything to do with houses: architecture, historical interiors, furniture, antiques, space planning, colors, fabrics, accessories, and did I mention furniture? LOL I may have veered off the original path out of necessity (educator, administrator, and professional consultant), but I’m ready to embrace this new chapter.
In the short time I have been blogging, I have met and been influenced by so many incredible people (YOU) and can certainly see many paths that lead to a fulfilling future. And, I’m so thankful to those of you who have taken the time to read about the musings on my own humble blog.
Make every season of your life count. Here’s to hopes, dreams, and plans for an exciting future.
It’s time to take wings and soar…
