Today I woke up eyelids heavy and energy deprived. I think it’s one of those days.
My mind is racing but my body is taking a break I guess.
I am not a person that needs coffee to wake up but a hot chocolate or tea is always appreciated until the fire is lit. I am sitting by the window with my iPad on hand leisurely browsing through my blog feed and Instagram. I love doing exactly that everyday although my location will vary. I love looking at my favorite bloggers photos. Their morning coffees, their recent flower arrangement, newly renovated kitchens or newly build homes! All beautiful photos accompanied by lovely words, my daily inspiration!
I pray you know that while I love looking at beautiful photos for inspiration I know most of them are Photoshopped. That you understand how styling and light and a good camera can change completely a room. That my house gets dirty and messy and when I show you a beautifully styled corner if you turned the photo around you might as well see an accumulated mess that I don’t know what to do with. I hope you don’t feel you need to measure up or envy any Pinterest or blogger’s photos because their houses are as imperfect as yours if not even more. I hope you use Pinterest and Instagram and all the virtual beautifully styled spaces as inspiration sources and you don’t look at them as the perfect unattainable goal.
Just enjoy reading the posts from your favorite bloggers and appreciate beauty wherever you can find it!
I will leave you with the unedited version of the photo above. Like it is right now in front of me.
Human eyes can be so deceiving. When I look at it in front of me right before I pick up my cup I see it as above. The camera disagrees. It is of course flawed. Our eyes are perfect 🙂
