The theme for February is ‘balance’. ‘The calm and balanced mind is the strong and great mind, the hurried and agitated mind is the weak one’ (Wallace Wattles). Or how about this – ‘Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony’. (Thomas Merton).
Such brilliant words and so utterly true! I don’t know about you but only four weeks into 2017 and I am feeling distinctly harried and hurried already. It really does take considerable and conscious focus to try and stay calm and balanced these days. What I do know beyond doubt is that my home contributes massively in keeping me balanced. No matter how hectic and stressful my day has been, when I walk through my front door and I am surrounded by a tranquil and orderly environment, I am instantaneously more relaxed.
It is so vitally important to have this kind of arrangement – to have a place or a space in our homes that allows us to unwind, regroup and be at peace. And of course, we at Exquisite Cuts are the best people around to help you achieve this – whether it’s completely re-doing a room or rooms or just updating an area – come and see what we have in store.
February is also synonymous with something else – but it slips my mind. Oh yes, now I remember – the month of love and Valentine. Personally I think the balance theme is far more useful than Valentine’s but we may succumb to commercial peer pressure and run a few Valentine’s specials during the course of the month. Watch this space – but until then – Be Balanced!
