November 11th – “Create more harmony and calmness…to improve how you feel when you’re at home.”

My bedroom has been filled with a mish mash of landscapes and cats since September. When I put them up months ago, I left space for the new paintings I would make. That didn’t happen, so the canvases have been hanging on my wall looking pretty awkward.

The obvious lesson here is that when you spend too much time thinking about the future, it’s easy to lose sight of today. In planning ahead for future paintings that I didn’t make, I didn’t get to enjoy my work in the present. The empty space was not harmonious and annoyed me! I kept the paintings there because I thought it wouldn’t be long before I would add new ones. I was so wrong!

Last night, I decided to end my suffering and took them all down.

This morning, I sorted the paintings, took out the ones that I didn’t really like, and rearranged them on the wall. Immediately, I felt better!

It’s amazing what a difference a small change can make. My horoscope also said that my home redesign “doesn’t have to be a major project,” which I found to be a great tip. Sometimes it just takes a little effort and attention.

I would still like to improve my painting skills, so instead of saving empty space on my walls, I sketched out a couple of cat paintings.

I’m leaving these on my desk until they’re done. If I don’t post the completed paintings in the next couple of weeks, please send me a message or comment!
