The Secret of Change

Socrates said “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” I really believe this. I have always embraced change.

I think this going to be my phrase for 2021. I am all about vision boards, but I am not usually one to pick a word for the year. Maybe I just need a phrase instead of a word. There is more guidance in a phrase, to my thinking.

I embodied this thought this past weekend. If you don’t like the rock wall in your living room, paint the rock wall in your living room.

This is the before. It doesn’t look so bad with this light and this filter, but trust me, it had to go.

This is the after. I love it. I painted it all black. It went from drab and old and your eye just moved away from it to fresh and interesting and it catches your eye with all the texture and depth.

I will write out a post for the process, but I just wanted to share a before and after to showcase the sentiment behind my affirmation for the year.
