When you live in an apartment, it can be very hard to do much with the décor. Typically, there are restrictions about what you can or cannot do regarding painting, putting up hooks or even just hanging pictures. Add to that restrictions on space, and you might find yourself stuck for ideas.
The good news is that even in small spaces you can bring nature into your home in ways that create a soothing and restful haven and won’t get you in trouble with your landlord. Try these tips:
We all know that getting back to nature is good for us, but it’s not always practical to visit the great outdoors. What do you do when you find yourself yearning for green spaces, and you can’t get there until the weekend? You find some quick and easy ways to bring the outdoors to you.
Try these ideas to bring nature into your home, regardless of where you live:
When you have dreams, you hope that your loved ones will come alongside you and help you achieve them. This is especially true in a romantic relationship. Sometimes, your aspirations will align, and things will be smooth sailing. Other times, you may feel like you are on opposite ends of the universe with no way to meet in the middle.
It is possible to support each other in your respective pursuits. It takes some patience and open communication, but it is doable when you understand how aspirations can affect your relationship.
What are your lifelong achievement goals? What did you dream of as a child? Has that changed? Aspirations are those dreams that we conjure up throughout our lives. As children, it may have been a career goal of becoming a fireman, a ballerina, or the President. Then, we age and gain new responsibilities.
Our perspectives change, making new things take on more importance. Aspirations are not a one-and-done kind of dream. They evolve as you grow, and navigate through new challenges. Understanding how your long-term plans might change helps you understand that you are not failing if life takes a detour.
Sometimes we group goals and aspirations together. While they may provide similar purposes, they are not the same. You might consider aspirations as lifelong dreams that are broad in scope. They can take you a lifetime to accomplish, or they may morph along the way. They help you make decisions in your day-to-day life.
Goals are the action steps you take to achieve your aspirations. They tend to center on the short term. Putting your lifelong achievements into words helps when you better understand the different types and see some examples.
You can have lifelong goals that drive your daily decisions. Do you want to grow as a person? It’s possible. Do you want to fulfill your childhood dream of becoming a nurse? You can do it.
What if you do not know what kind of aspiration you should pursue? It takes effort, but youcan discern what matters to you and build your life around those dreams. As you take a deeper look at how you envision your future, you may find that you need to drill down to your why to find success, but you have the ability within you to figure out your aspirations.
Do you have hopes and dreams? Do you have an ambition to achieve a life goal in the future? If so, you have aspirations. Big picture life goals give us a sense of purpose and direction as we live out each day, don’t be mistaken. Having goals and aspirations are not the same thing.
Goals are action steps to get you to a final destination, while aspirations tend to be more general and long-term future focused. Think of it this way, when you want to look back on your career and know you met all your goals, that is an aspiration. Obtaining a new position within six months is a goal. They work together, but they have separate functions.
They say the best lies have a good amount of truth in them.
So, if I’m going to tell you beautifully constructed lies in my fiction book, The Gospel of Wolves, it’s only natural that I draw from my own experiences and introduce you to some of my previous lives. (Not referring to reincarnation, but to prior passions of mine.
In the case of The Gospel Of Wolves, I bring you into the story with the following opening:
There’s a point in every relationship where you have to make yourself vulnerable if you’re going to form a deep bond with that person.
Regardless of the relationship you’re trying to cultivate, there’s no way around it.
I know, it get’s harder to do each time someone burns you and you don’t know how much more you can take without being someone you don’t want to be.
I’ve been there and through a great deal of work, figured out a few steps that allows you to show the type of vulnerability that builds genuine trust into meaningful relationships while protecting yourself.
Before you start getting all confessional though, qualify the person. That means…
In July of 2016, I had a public fine art exhibition at the Al-Kebulan Cultural Art Center in Pasadena, CA.
I called the exhibition “Surfacing” and curated the art for the event by the fictional character from The Gospel of Wolves, Lindsey Falco. The Gospel of Wolves is one of a growing number of stories in the fictional story world that Christopher refers to as The Wilderness Saga and in that story world, Lindsey has shown most of her work in the fictional gallery of Pozeza!.
Click below to see what Lindsey considers her 11 most important paintings to be shown in “Pozeza!”.
Donna was thrilled to greet you from our new house of Dysonna where she interviewed Christopher J.Wesley our winner of the Dysonna Scholarship Program Los Angeles 2020. You will hear Christopher's story and enjoy seeing his art in Dysonna City Art Gallery.
I'm really about over with how little I'm able to actually socialize in person with people. I'm still wearing a mask and still keep my time indoors with people I don't live with to a minimum, but sometimes it feels like a part of me is atrophying.
