I’ve been saying that I want to change up my bedroom for months. Literally…months. I’ve been in my current apartment for 2 years and haven’t re-done anything since I moved in. There was nothing wrong with my room but it didn’t bring me bliss. Not at all. I’ve spent many, many unhappy days here and, unfortunately, held on to a lot of things that brought back those emotions. I needed something new that would reflect the joyful, free person that I’ve become. I needed a room that would make me smile.
I woke up yesterday morning and had the urge to rip everything down. So, I did.
I didn’t take pictures of the process (although I DO wish I had taken ‘before’ pictures) because it was a mess. Trust me. I cleaned, shopped, and re-organized all day but the outcome was so, so worth it.
There are still a number of things I want to change/add when my budget allows but, for right now, I’m happy. I actually feel at home in my room for the first time…ever. And that’s exactly what I needed.
Don’t be afraid to change things or throw things away. If you haven’t touched them in months, you probably don’t need them. If they stir up negative emotions, you definitely don’t need them. Your room is the one place where you should feel 100% safe. It should be your haven…make sure that it is.
Here’s to throwing out the old and bringing in the new…
