My home is my kingdom and home interior has turned out to be one of my biggest passions (other than books, content creation and meeting with my people). I don’t know how many requests I have received to show you guys a little bit more of my new UK apartment.
I am currently taking baby steps to create my dream interior. Working the past year for my favourite Scandinavian living room brand has been a dream come true. That has enabled me to buy some amazing furniture and develop even further my interior-eye. It takes long time for me to decide which piece of furniture I want to buy, or just long time to …save money for it.
If you are new to this and you are designing your new home my best advice for you would be, do not rush. It is better to have less in the beginning than throw money here and there for things that you know you will eventually replace. Good things take time and I have been gathering the furniture I have at my place for over 3 years now. So if you are looking at this blogpost and think I was born with a golden spoon, you are so wrong.
Like so many other people I moved abroad with very little money in my pocket. It took a lot of working hours, hard work, a lot of tough decisions and a little bit of help, to come to where I am now. And like most people if I don’t continue doing the above, my comforts will fade. Life is not a destination but the journey, and whoever wrote this had grasped the meaning of living. Reaching a place that is more than struggling to pay your monthly bills, takes time and requires maintenance. And if you were not born with a golden spoon either you know this too. Now if you are not where you want to be (which is completely different for each one of us). Hang in there and try to think how your life was 5 years ago. Also do not allow people to determine how you feel with your successes and losses, they do not live your life, you do! (I know….easier said than done).
Unfortunately the whole social media world give us this idea of everyone being well off , good looking, having a dream life. However no one really knows the time it takes, the hard work and so many other factors that determine someones course in life. And definitely no-one knows another person by checking an instagram photo. My dream life might be nothing for someone else and my life could be the world to another. I guess this is where we fail outside of social media, more in imagination rather than reality.
For me this blog is the perfect way to communicate and share pieces of my life with my friends around the world, some virtual, some real. It is my me time, creating content and communicating with my audience. It does not matter that my audience is not that large, that I am not a famous influencer. Like in real life, you share things because of your own need to share and in that process you might inspire a person or two.
Okay this blogpost started as an interior post… hmm..
So to sum up. Today let us be grateful for the life we have now, the people we have become and let us allow ourselves to feel happy with something as silly as our interior design. Today I am happy waking up in my new beautiful home, gazing at my gorgeous new dining furniture, which are also a reminder that it might have taken long time to buy them but they are the seed of hard work and dreaming set into action.
