I gravitate toward earth tones – the deep green, the rich brown, the dark blue that looks black, the grey that has veins of gold, copper, and brown. I decorate my house with these fundamental colors, and even my dress mirrors these organic hues.
In my office I have a curtain hanging over my door. The design on the top have has a light cream base and a mixture of flowing flowers, colored in pink, purple, green, turquoise, and grey. As your eye shifts down the length of the curtain, the vibrant colors leave and what is left is the light cream base and a grey outline of the colors, as if they want you to color them in or they just forgot.
I love this curtain and my eyes linger on it often throughout the day. However, some people have told me that it is ugly. It’s probably not everyone’s cup of tea, but why do I love it so much?
My husband and I had good jobs, we were well established. We had a home mortgage, kids, animals, degrees, a couple of cars, a couple of vacations a year…
What more did I need?
And if I wanted something more…
Is it worth the risk?
We will all, at some point, need to face these questions. The lie however, is that there comes a point in our life where we don’t need to ask them.
We have these questions when we are thinking of a career, or what type of schooling we will specialize in. We may approach the subject with marriage, kids, and a home. But then what?
For me, these questions continued to come. People didn’t agree that I should have these questions – I was set. Ride the wave they would say. Wade in the water they would say. Just enjoy a good thing.
I wasn’t ungrateful for what I had, but I had a desire for more…we all do.
For the few that continue to ask the questions, know that you are rewriting your future instead of letting society, or your family, tell you what is written. Move forward boldly!
We are the curtain, our stories are not all colored in yet, we can still make changes. The fault of life’s circumstances may not be ours, but it is our responsibility to do something about it!
What do you want your curtain to look like? What would you like different?
If you are ready to re-create your future, don’t wait! We know how to help because we’ve done it!
