Notebook: Place
What space brings you joy?

Take time today to think about the place that allows you respite from the world.  Our homes can be a source of both comfort and joy. So many meaningful life moments take place in our homes, and when considered in the right context, our homes can help facilitate those moments.  What about your living space brings you the most comfort? What brings you the most joy?

The most pleasant place I can honestly say that brings me Joy is.. Sitting under the stars or under a moonlight. On a beautiful night fresh breeze. When I look up and see the light of the moon and the stars reflecting on me. And I feel the cool breeze just go through my body. I feel like I am at one. Like I am at such peace. And my heart fills with Joy, because I can see how much I use to take for granted. And how I am giving another chance to simply enjoy it.

I created a healing space in my home filled with positive messages, small drums used in drum circles, crystals, diffuser, himalayan salt lamp, a journal, dream catcher, a place to sit, a singing bowl, and a massage table for Reiki. The colors are a lavender my teenage girls chose and a light sage green called morning zen. It is a sacred space when we need to decompress because the room is filled with positive energy and love.

My space is quiet time looking at the blue sky, the blooming flowers and trees, and fresh air.  I find peace in this space

A few months ago I moved in with a roommate and I love my bedroom.  It’s probably the best curated space I’ve had in my adulthood.  I’m happy I took the time to decorate and get things arranged the way I wanted.  I love the way the sunlight comes into the room and it is a very calming space for me.  I love it so much it motivates me to keep it neat and orderly!

A certain corner of my couch is like my little nook for relaxation everyday.

I love being in my kitchen. Cooking is an outlet/ therapeutic for me, so I love when I get the chance to get in there and try some new recipes. Another favorite space of mine is my living room floor, specifically when I am doing yoga! I did a short practice last night and felt better than I had all week! I stayed in Shavasana for probably an extra 20 minutes.

I like to sit in my bed after awakening, have coffee and read email. My cats Koneko and Shimo have appropriated themselves as my alarm clock and won’t leave me alone until I feed them.
