Two years ago, I was showing a friend around our new house. I use the word showing loosely because there’s not a lot to see when your home is only 1,000 square feet.
As we rounded back to the living room and took a seat, I said, “I don’t really like how we have this room set up. We just made it the way it was in the old apartment because it was easy.” I pulled a blanket over me and got cozy. “We’ll probably change it in a few weeks.”
Any guesses as to what the living room looks like now?
Yeah. Exactly the same. I cringed as I typed that.
After about a year and half, we finally fixed up the two bedrooms, which had been haphazardly put together, but our living room remains sad and untouched. It isn’t horrible, but I don’t love it. You need to love your home if you are going to be there long term.
So for today, a resolution. I will find a way to have the living room I can be cozy in AND love. Update to follow soon!
