My office makeover, using Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art of keeping the ‘chi’ (energy) flowing. Katie Rogers took me by the hand and led me on a fun journey, helping me see the problem areas and the easy solutions.

BEFORE  – Smessy officeee how my desk chair faces into a corner? And the gold ‘earth’ color walls dam the flow of energy and money. Trust me, this is not ideal for a home office!




BEFORE  – I was a stacker.  Office - No creative flowEach project was in a neat pile, but my energy was constantly being pulled from one task to another.  (ugh) So hard to focus. I felt scattered. No wonder I avoided being in my office.



AFTEROffice - AFTER (2)

See the ‘water’ color walls? The paint is Artesian Well by Martha Stewart Living, at Home Depot. I took everything out of the room and only put back what supports me and brings me joy. Do you like the watercolor I did of an elephant family?

Now my office is like a 3-D vision board.

It feels great to have my desk chair face the front door of our house.  Katie, my Feng Shui goddess, calls this the Command position. And the leafy green tree is in the ‘money corner’ of the room.

I hung a crystal in the window so rainbows dance across the walls all morning. Pretty. Now I love-love-love being in my office and my creativity (and finances) are thriving. Yay for Feng Shui!

To say “thank you” as my first response.

I’ve decided I want to practice this new behavior until it becomes a habit.  Especially if the situation didn’t go my way. Didn’t go the way I thought it should go.

What difference would it make to my life if my first response were “thank you”? When my husband is “supposed” to pick me up and he’s late, so I have to wait 15 minutes? What difference would it make if, instead of blasting him (where WERE you?!), my first words are “thank you”. And what if, even before he pulled up at the curb, I was thinking “thank you”…

“thank you” that I have someone who is willing to walk to the car and come back to get me

“thank you” that I am free from pain right now

“thank you” that I have time to sit still and notice the people walking by
