This morning I put up that old header photo and thought, "I miss that living room arrangement! But we bought our fireplace later so, oh well, it can no longer be done."
But then I sat in the living room until I figured a way it could be done.
Also, I'd been wanting a coffee table like the big kids at Pinterest, so well, two-and-a-half hours (and a couple game shows) later, I'm now wearily resting and enjoying the new arrangement with the squeezed-in coffee table I'd previously stuck in a corner.
(But I must warn you minimalists that this might make you dizzy)---
Here's the other side--
Sometimes you thirst for change. You neeeed to rearrange your living room, even if, at first, it feels impossible. For me, this was so one of those times.
For too many months I told myself, "There's only one way to arrange this room," and allowed my frustration to make me crave a house with a decent-sized living room.
But what I finally remembered? When your creativity feels tied-up, challenged, nearly always there's a higher creative plan/place if only you'll brush off the rampant negativity which so easily clings to us in today's world.
And it's a wonderful day when we climb to that new place, also pulling others up with us.

When we learn to view hard times as doable challenges rather than impossible problems, we begin to grow exponentially.
Another great thing about rearranging? It's the perfect opportunity to vacuum-up all the secret fallen things like paper, cough drop wrappers and dust in hidden places. :)
