Fiddle Leaf mini...

I stopped by our local home depot yesterday.  I actually went in for paint samples for the interior doors... my house is almost 30 years old, and one by one i am replacing them for a more solid door. i can't believe i actually get excited over doors but i AM. .. anyway.. sitting on a shelf looking all gorgeous was this little fiddle leaf fig. 
Only recently have i realized the physical effect of plants..!! seriously... a positive energy, a happy vibe...
and it just so happens the planters were on clearance... which was a big bonus..
 In a "i need to start getting the house ready for the Holidays" and all the people coming over and i am no where ready, i don't even have doors in the guest room." kind of thinking... i "justified" my impulse on this cute little tree... instead of hinges for the guest room door.... which by the way i will pick up this weekend.  I was totally distracted by this plant... i really need to have tunnel vision when i am in a store.  Keeping my fingers crossed i can decide on the color for the interior doors and get to work finishing before I have over-nighters... Did i mention i am doing all this myself.  Via you tube video of DIY.  hmmmm..


Yellow Door and some thoughts...

traditionally my front door has always been black...not that I liked it, it was okay and it was semi neutral...but, I decided to get out of my comfort zone and just go for it...like a lot of things in my life, I am evolving...as a matter of fact, that word in 72 font is hanging proudly in my office.  "EVOLVE"...
It definitely is not about a front door, it is about me and the things in my life that I have only accepted and moved on...
When did I stop going for it! and Why? I have been living with what I feel is the safe side of the street.  Accepting what is and not doing one thing to change it. Even if the "what is" isn't good or even me for that matter. 
Maybe it is me the me deep inside that feels it is time to come back to life.  I liked her. I liked being her.  I have let life and others dictate my choices.  I can share my life, but I can't live my life trying to please other people.  My life for the most part has been trying to bring happiness to others and without realizing it, I have neglected myself....and gradually stopped being me? and doing what I wanted, and how I wanted to do things...
It was a wake up call for me...do things that make YOU happy and do them the way you choose to do them.  without guilt.  :)
