Quote of the Day: I find that I need to keep my expectations for what I can accomplish in the Cure not too sky high because otherwise I can easily feel defeated when I actually have gotten a lot done.Pixie

It’s so good to hear that most of you are doing quite well. I want you to keep it up as we go through the onslaught of Thanksgiving next week, and here’s my tip for having a good one. Before you head home or have friends and family over, think your way through the evening and decide what you want to achieve in advance. Think about who you want to make sure to talk to and how long you want to stay. Think about finding the time to enjoy your food. Think about what remarkable opportunity you will have to be around friends and family and don’t let it pass without connecting with the people who are most important in your life right now. Regret comes mainly from things that don’t get said at times like these, and I find that this holiday can be terribly depressing when it follows the same old patterns and you feel tired out by it afterwards.

Take charge and make it a really good holiday for yourself and those around you. And then clean up and rest up. You’ll feel great if you do.

This Week’s Assignment:

In the deep treatment the overall theme is peacefulness. As you clean out your bathroom(s), I want you to get to a point where you are able to put some calming luxury back into them. If you don’t have them already, there are some purchases to be made here that can change your bathroom experience.

In the One Room Remedy take a good look at the lighting in your home. I find that most homes are underlit and that most that seem drab or uninspired could be turned around simply by addressing the lighting alone. Get adventurous! Lighting can be very affordable and different kinds of lights will really make your home leap to life. Oh, and there’s some painting to do this week for some. Enjoy our small tutorial on how to paint a room. It’s basic, but we find that it always helps to remember it when we’re painting a room.
