Your soul is tired of you letting some people walk all over your boundaries. Unconditional love is not unconditional tolerance. Be assertive, not aggressive. Enforcing your boundaries is assertive, not aggressive. Crossing someone’s boundaries is aggressive, not assertive.
Make your own environment comfortable and luxurious. Splurge on the nice dining set. Repaint where it’s needed. Take the trash out every day. Obliterate clutter. Use your creativity to create an environment that inspires you; there are certainly enough home decorating personalities in the media today that should be able to guide you on how to create a beautiful home on a budget - Arden Leigh
wow realizing that i can make myself happy right now is insane. i can buy that huge, oversized sweater to hide in while i drink hot tea. i can make collages out of old magazines and art catalogs to feel like i’m in an indie movie. i can go pick fresh flowers and put them in my hair so i feel like a carefree fairy maiden. i can do all these things. they’re within my grasp and so much closer than i realize. things are so much simpler than i previously chose to see them and that’s such a serious relief. happiness is within my reach.
picture in your head a woman who can get anything she could ever want. see the way her eyes court promises and threats. listen to the way she laughs in the face of the world. study the way she walks. the ways she strides. always having someplace better to be than the last. picture a woman who can get anything she could ever want. become her.
