I feel like I have a tendency to start all of my blog posts with some variation of "so I have been giving a lot of thought to"...whatever it happens to be at the moment.

But, the truth of the matter is that I have been giving a lot of thought to something and even though I don't have the idea entirely fleshed out, I wanted to introduce it to the world because I feel like it is too good to hold back.

And what is this amazing idea, you ask?  

Let me start by giving a little bit of background.

A few weeks ago on my Insta-stories I did a small and very informal poll.  
(Are you following me on Instagram
If not, I hope you'll hop over right now and hit that little follow button!)

I asked my followers three questions.

The first  was whether or not they felt that their surroundings could influence their happiness. 



As you can see from the responses, the overwhelming majority of respondents felt that their surroundings could indeed influence their happiness.


The second question was whether or not they felt that their surroundings could influence their level of success.



Although the margin was a little slimmer on this question, the vast majority also felt that their surroundings could influence their success.


And the final question was how they felt about the self-help industry.



This question was really just for me.   I love the self-help/self-improvement industry, and I feel like I have something to offer to it that is not really out there yet.  Although the response on this was more evenly split, there was still a majority that like the self-improvement industry.  

So what am I getting at with these questions?

Well, the truth of the matter is that I have felt for a very long time,  that our environments, our surroundings - in short, our homes - play a huge role in our overall life experience.
I have mentioned numerous times on this blog my belief that our homes should serve as safe havens and harbors from the storms of life.   But even more than that, I believe that our homes can and should serve as the basis and even the genesis of our happiness and success.

I honestly believe that by creating a beautiful, organized and  inviting atmosphere in our homes, we are setting ourselves up to perform at our best levels, to be the best versions of ourselves, and to be able to reach our potential for success.

What I hope to do in coming weeks, is to dive deeper into the different ways that we can set ourselves up for success in our everyday lives through our home environments.

I'm so excited to delve deeper into this subject with you!
