Wednesday Style Points: The Day After
The presents are opened
The paper is shredded
The snow has fallen &…
I am tired!
Traditions are beautiful when we embrace them with our Heads and Hearts
But the day after sometimes our heart is disappointed & our joy is less than full
The Home was beautiful, the Tree perfect, the Meals divine…the music is still playing…
We bought into the process completely. We followed all the rules. We have access.
But something has gone wrong
The Birkin Bag is fabulous, yes, but why isn’t my life suddenly transformed?
Our homes are much the same way…we create these fabulous spaces & places
We custom design the fabrics, the furniture, the trim and they seem to come alive
The coffee still spills, the pie crust isn’t perfect even though it came out of a French Range…
Something has gone wrong
We buy the best hand bag or take the time for the most exquisite custom design, not because it will transform us
but because the process vets us – it reminds us of why we are alive & for whom we exist
It’s different for all of us – those data points on life
For me? They exist in my home + my work
The custom designing process or working towards the best available is about making what is in YOU come alive
Those style points that equip you to breathe deep in the chaos of the day after
You get a glimpse of a gift given or received that lifts you out of the ordinary
And reminds you that it’s ok
You are so much more than ordinary
Worth so much more than a Birkin Bag
Perfect? Never. Messy? Sometimes.
Worth it? Always.
Style Points. They are yours alone. Custom crafted into your soul, fingerprints really – of you.
I love the mess of the day after. I even love the mess of the “somethings gone wrong” void that comes with it.
It reminds me that living is process and the way we embrace the process is our style
May today be a day where your style points – your unique custom stamp – is a blessing to those around you – starting in your home
“Live a custom life. There is only one you.”™
