In section 2, I loved these two quotes:
“Decorating is not about making stage sets, it’s not about making pretty pictures for the magazines; it’s really about creating a quality of life, a beauty that nourishes the soul.” -Albert Hadley
When you look at your home, how do you feel? Do you exhale and relax, soaking in your blessings? Do you want to invite someone over for a cup of tea or coffee? A warm, inviting home doesn’t have to be a perfectly ordered home. It is just one that says, I value myself, I value my family, and I value relationships. Basically, when you walk into a nourishing home it feels like you’re walking into a hug.”
That inspired me so much! I want my home to be like a warm and welcoming to my family and all who walk through its doors.
And from section 3:
“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” -Steve Maraboli
Whoa! That’s powerful stuff!
I want to be unapologetically myself — comfortable in my perfect imperfection. This doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t work on improving and growing as a person, but I want to embrace my gifts, quirks, and passions instead of being what I think maybe I “should” be or what someone “wants” me to be.
I’d love hear your thoughts on these quotes. And if you’re reading Nourished alongside me this week, I’d love to hear anything that is sticking out to you!
