Mi Santuario

My room in my sanctuary, my source of energy, and my safe space. It used to be a source of happiness and of serenity and calmness, and lately it has been one of my main sources of melancholy and in turn anxiety. I walk into my room and all I see are memories, really great amazing memories that I want to cherish forever, but all I see is those memories, and it hurts.

I decided to reclaim my safe space and to make it my own again. Not that it wasn't my own, but right now it feels like ours, a shared space, and the goal is to renew and start fresh. I decided to try to make some changes to my room to start feeling at home again. My room is pretty packed with my bed, my dresser, my tv and books, and two couches. This means that changing furniture around really does become an impossible task. So I can't change the configuration, but that doesn't mean there aren't things I can do.

First things first, I am going to be painting a wall, or maybe two, from my room to make it look different. Right now I'm between a pale millennial pink, pale lavender, or powder blue. I will pick a color tomorrow when I go buy paint, and just choose whatever feels right. I have also been looking for new decorations online and found some really pretty and delicate butterflies to put on my wall. I am a huge fan of butterflies because they remind me of my favorite line by John Keats "I almost wish we were butterflies..." so it was a no brainer that the new butterflies should fill my wall, and bring me smiles.

Currently I am talking to a friend to see if she'll make some line paintings for me. I want super delicate and feminine paintings that will just remind that it's okay to be delicate and beautiful (lol just called myself beautiful, but I think I deserve the complement). I'm almost certain I'm also going to buy a new comforter, I want my bed to feel fresh and renewed.

I'm still not sure how things will turn out, but I do know that just planning is already making me feel better. I want to be able to come to my room and feel good, feel like it is my space again.

I will be posting more about my room renovation on my instagram stories, so feel free to check it out and give me ideas.
