Redecorate Your Room Redecorate Your Life

Does your life need a touch up?

Okay, so maybe only the women will get this, but have you ever noticed that something as simple as rearranging the furniture can breathe life into a tired old room? You don’t have to go out and buy all new furniture or knock down walls. You can just pick one tiny thing, like painting a wall blue, and still achieve the same effect – something fresh, new, and different. Well I think the same goes for your life.

So, okay, you’re in a funk. Tired of the same old same old. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Before you set out to make some major life change that could end up to be a disaster (just ask me about the time I thought I’d make a good missionary in Cuba) consider making a small change instead. Do one spontaneous thing. Take a new class. Break your routine and stop to have coffee and visit a museum. Check into a hotel – for no reason.  Waste an entire Saturday doing absolutely nothing.

I think that sometimes when we get bored with our life, we think we need a major change. And sometimes a major change isn’t smart, achievable, or even necessary. Why tear down the house when all you need is a new throw pillow? So consider that your life may not need an overhaul – it simply needs redecorating.

  1. Perhaps it is a woman thing, but Kelly this is so true. Four new placements on the table can fill me up with pure joy and a fresh outlook. Thanks for bringing a big smile to this motivational speaker’s face.

  2. Yay Kelly!  Right on!  Of course I just sort of shifted my category of changes in my life.  I used to do HUGE changes!  HUGE!  And I still do like to change automobiles every so often. Not John.  He will drive the same car for 30 years.  So I made a deal with him.  I’ll keep ONE husband forever, and occasionally swap out cars.  It’s a deal that works for us both!

  3. Love it, love it!  2 new pillows on my living room couch did it for me.  We were having this very cool guest over for dinner and I was excited about the yummy food, what I was going to wear, the “magic” that would inevitably happen (my husband and guest are both magicians) but I was so tired of how my house looked. Like you said, instead of razing the house to its foundation,  one trip to Home Goods and 2 gorgeous colorful pillows later, I was re-jazzed.  Of course my husband looked at me weirdly when I came home with new pillows.  Maybe it is a girl thing.

  4. Actually this works for us blokes too! I just cleaned up my desk and put a framed photo of my kids on it and voila… a whole new experience. Thanks you wacky motivational speaker… I sure do appreciate you helping me to redecorate my life!
