My Inspirational Corner
I have a large window in my office; while sitting at my desk, I can see it clearly. One day I was thinking that the sill looked so bare, I really needed to put something on top of it. The Spirit led me to make this my inspirational corner. I love cards and really enjoy receiving them. Actually, I love to just look at cards, read them, pick them out and give them also (but I do like getting them as well). In my circle, people are not big on cards, so I am sort of alone in this and usually miss out on my card fix.
What I did with this corner is place inspiring or otherwise uplifting cards on display. I have one that says "You are an amazing woman" on the front and has a picture of a woman standing on the beach who seems so free. I love it! It helps me to reflect in moments when I don't feel so amazing. I have a couple of thank you cards. Also, one that reminds me someone was thinking of me and sent a card simply for that reason. I have a card from my son and beside it I placed a leaf that he gave me one day while we were walking. And, I even went out and bought myself a card. I took the time to choose something that I would love to receive and then I gave it to myself. I figured, why wait on others to show me the love I can show myself?
Now, when I need a moment to regroup, I can look to my right, read the words or just take in the pictures and I feel refreshed and ready to continue.
