"Before any garden can be seeded, the ground has to be prepared. The rocks and weeds need clearing, the earth has to be turned and the nutrients introduced.
Starting a business is the same way. You have to clear the clutter from your life, internally and externally. You have to create the right environment to be able to grow your vision."
~ Lynne Franks, The Seed Handbook. The Feminine Way to Create Business
This is what I've been doing every day, all day for the past week. Preparing the ground for my business.
Here is my new sage studio (at least my half...I didn't take pics of Boho Hubs desk on the other side). I feel a sense of renewal that I've been longing for. When I walk up the stairs to the loft, I stand, stare and sigh. It feels so fresh up here. I can almost feel soft wind blowing through me.
I've needed this clearing for so long. My studio, the space where I spend most of the hours during my day, was stacked with clutter and therefor, so was my brain. I needed more space, more organization, more femininity, more zen.
In the Seed Handbook, I have underlined "It is so important to create a living, vital space that reflects your energy".
Here it is folks, my space, my energy...
My apologies for the dark tones of these pictures. The lighting is very soft rather than bright up here. Click for larger view:
