I wanted to take a quick moment today to talk about dreaming BIG! I’m writing this post because I feel as though a lot of us limit our belief in the type of house we want! We place a huge limit on the type of furniture we can have. We place a limit on the type of decorations we place throughout our home. We place a limit on the size of the house we want to buy/build. We place a limit on the landscape that surrounds our home!
Quite frankly, I think it’s super sad that we place a limit on our home! Think about it! We place a limit on enhancing the very place that we hold near and dear to our hearts! We place a limit on the structure that houses our loved ones. Our home is the place that we go to every single day for safe haven. It’s the place where we eat meals with our family. It’s the place that we go to after a rough day at work or a long, strenuous day at school. If our home is such a monumental component of our life, why should we limit what we put in our home because of a simple price tag?
Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that we should spend well above our means to finance furniture. The last thing I want would be for someone to take out a $100,000 loan to simply make their house look cooler. All I recommend is for us all to stop having a “I can’t have this because I’m so broke” mentality! We need to stop looking at the way things currently are or once were, and starting looking toward the future and what our homes can become!
It’s okay if you’re currently broke and can’t afford decent furniture or beautiful artwork to embellish your home. Being broke, however, shouldn’t stop you from thinking big and working toward some of those dream decorations! I urge everyone to visualize your home being the best that it can possibly be! Every single day I think about having beautiful black/grey, leather couches! I dream of one day having gorgeous artwork displayed sporadically throughout my house! I constantly imagine having barbecues in my backyard with my closest friends and family members next to my mammoth-sized swimming pool that’s surrounded by cherry blossoms. I dream every day of burning calories in my basement’s professional-looking indoor gym.
If your budget is tight, I recommend that you stop counting your pennies. I suggest that you stop looking at what you can’t afford, and start dreaming big and focusing on the things you want! As you start to dream big, you can then start working backwards and putting together a plan to achieve those things that you want! So…what’s it going to be? What does your dream home look like?
