Last blog we explored “5 Activities to Enrich Your Life”. Is it possible that there are also objects that can enrich your life? I think most of us would agree that things are not what is important in our lives but admittedly we still seek to own certain treasures both small and large. So… what things put a smile on your face or a skip in your step? What do you admire in the stores? What do you spend money on when you are able? In this blog we will explore…
5 Objects to Enrich Your Life:
1. Delectable Treats
Everyone has a weakness… sweet or salty. A rich glass of red wine and dark chocolate or crisp white wine and milk chocolate provides a soothing combination of mouth-watering pleasure for me. What’s your guilty pleasure?
2. Beautiful Art
Wandering through small local art galleries is both calming and inspiring. Fine art, pottery, sculptures, or re-purposed pieces capture emotions, life moments, beauty, and creativity. Whether I purchase or leave empty-handed I feel inspired.
3. New Clothes
Sing it with me… “I feel pretty… Oh so pretty…”
Ok, I am a sucker for jewelry. I know… typical girl. The few pieces of jewelry I have received as gifts have had great meaning to me because of why they were given to me. Every time I wear it I feel that person’s love. Most literally it is an “object of their affections”.
5. A Clean Organized House
What is the saying? “A cluttered house is a cluttered mind”. I cannot work or relax in my home when it is cluttered. It feels dis-organized, chaotic, and unsettling. The process of getting that clean, organized house is arduous. However, the result is surroundings that allow me to feel calm and peaceful.
As I write I realize it is not the objects that are of value to me but the emotions they evoke; self-indulgence, inspiration, confidence, love, peace. That is the reason I seek these things and find them valuable in my life. What objects enrich YOUR life? What do they do for YOU?
