52 Simple Ways to Create a Beautiful Space

52 Simple Ways to Create a Beautiful Space by artofabeautifullife.com | Free, Printable Download

This is a system for those of us who struggle with organizing and staying organized. This is for those of us who get overwhelmed with big projects.

This is my system for the year. Things have gotten out of control over the last few years. I need a system. A simple system to regain control of my space. And because life has been so crazy, I need it to be a manageable system, something that will not overwhelm me or make me want to quit the first month. But it needs to be something that at the end of the year, I will feel more peaceful about my space.

52 Things is a series of simple projects over the year designed to de-clutter, organize, simplify, and make your life more beautiful. Each week is one simple project designed to concentrate on one small area. A large project can become overwhelming. This often keeps us from even starting. With these small, but very purposeful projects, you will find it easy and feel productive as you take one small area at a time and transform it a beautiful space. These are manageable tasks and can usually be done in a small block of time, but over the course of the year, a lot of little things will add up.

I discovered that it is sometimes on the journey that we find ourselves. -Topaz

I have learned that we do not always have to have strong feelings about something for it to be the thing that will move our soul, for it to awaken our soul. The soul is often awakened on the journey. We just must begin the journey. We must take the journeys, lots of journeys. We have to take that first step. We have to say yes. This is the place where life is lived. This is where we get those experiences that stay with us for a lifetime. These are the things that make our life. These are the things that…

It was when I took the journey that…

He Takes My Breath Away

bushel-and-a-peck

He passed this way. I wanted to touch the hem of His garment. This is what this felt like today. On my birthday. He takes my breath away. He saw the tears I blinked away. And He passed this way.

I delight myself in Him and in His love for me. I look for His handiwork. It is in the mountains and in the oceans. It is in the birth of a child. It is in the love notes He leaves for me every where I go. I fall in love with Him a little more every day. He takes my breath away.

My heart is so happy….and full. My heart is full. Today we celebrated.
