I’ve learned that art doesn’t necessarily have to be “your style” or “your aesthetic” to have a place in your house. Doesn’t matter if it doesn’t match our decor or go with the other pieces in your living room. Sometimes you can see something and know that it belongs with you anyways.
This framed print is called “Beginning the Journey” and, upon first glance, I was pretty mesmerized by it.
What better reminder could there be?
Stop. Look around. Put the phone away. Take a breath. Absorb. Be present.
And yet as simple as it sounds, it’s rarely done.
I think that was my attraction to this little print. Anything that reminds me to slow down and pay attention in life, whether it matches the color scheme in my house or not, is coming home with me.
Price: $1.99 at a thrift shop in downtown Seattle.
