Funny how I can enter another person's home and be inspired to go home to my own and clean, organize, decorate.
It was just a few days ago, that I pondered about that. I find myself doing that often. I go over to people's homes and look around -- not snooping (though, I admit I have done that before). When I am at these homes -either be in conversation with a friend, dropping in for a moment to pick something up, or spending in afternoon there - I find myself looking around at their house. And for the most part, I start having thoughts running through my head about ideas to do in my own home.
For example, I had a friend that had a turquoise blue wall. I LOVED that. So, I imagined an orange wall in my own home --my kitchen!! Or a turquoise blue wall in my living room!
In another person's home, I saw that she had scriptures hung in frames throughout her home. I was inspired.
I remember going to someone's home to bring them a meal. Their mom was there helping with laundry. I walked in to a fresh smelling clean house. It actually inspired and motivated me to go to my own home to try and grasp that same fresh clean smell in my house.
And, I remember being at a friend's house that was a disaster. Laundry spilled everywhere, dirty dishes piled in the sink, cobwebs on the corners of the walls, dust built up on the ceiling fans -- This atmosphere -- made me feel so at home! Because, I could relate to them! And, inspired me to go clean my house too.
Well, I guess that inspiration and motivation can come from all sorts of places and situations. Do you have any quirky ways that might inspire you?
