This month, the High Five email is all about self-expression. Depending on one's understanding this might seem too deep a topic to some while others might find it a bit frivolous. After all, what difference does it make what we wear or what color our hair is?
The answer of course is it doesn't matter one bit. What does matter is whether our outward appearance or our home's interior or our daily words and actions for that matter are an expression of our TRUE SELVES.
Yep, I'm going deep with this one...but only briefly. I promise.
Each of us is special and worthy of harnessing the love and confidence we were imbued with as life began. We are deserving of a life that reflects our spirit whether it's loud and colorful or quiet and reserved.
As I meet with clients and customers, I often have to break through a few walls to determine what they really want their homes and lives to be. Years of expectations can do a number on them until they are finally unwilling to put themselves and their heartfelt desires on the line.
I'm here to tell you that it's worth being open and being honest. It's worth expressing your true self every day and in every interaction. It's worth dressing to feel confident, beautiful and sexy. And it's worth creating a home that harbors and regenerates you.
So when I ask how you are, what you think, or how you feel...I mean it. I always want you to be able to express your TRUE SELF!
