Decorating – ‘Chelle

I’ve never considered myself very good at decorating…  I especially got a complex when mom would come over and move things around after I’d arranged them…

For the longest time – I could never decorate or arrange anything without asking for someone else’s advice first.  After all – mom is INCREDIBLY opinionated when it comes to decorating and if you don’t do it mom’s way – she’ll just hassle you until you “fix” it…  (Love you Mom!)

So – for years – I thought that my decorating skills sucked.  Then, about 5 years ago, I had an epiphany…  I read the book, “The Five Love Languages“.  That book outlines the 5 ways in which people like to give and receive love.  Mom’s love language is “Acts of Service” whereas mine is “Words of Affirmation”.  Well – that began to explain A LOT!  Mom wasn’t redecorating because I sucked at it – she was doing it as a service to me!  OMG – Epiphany!!

Suddenly it didn’t bother me when mom would come over and move things or redo something.  She was doing it to be nice and show me she cares!  Wow – that was a huge breakthrough in my head!

If you have a chance – everyone should read The Five Love Languages…  It’s amazing at what you can find out about yourself and those around you!
