I’m fully convinced that no one really sets out to build palaces; it just sort of happens. We’re grocery shopping and bill paying and Target-going and then, all the sudden, our home is stuffed and our hearts are not. So we move to a bigger house or trade in for a newer model and there, that’s better. But – like all things – the cycle continues when the shiny turns dull and then, over time, we’ve curated quite a palace for ourselves.
The sad thing, of course, is that palaces are hard to crumble. There are higher towers, thicker walls, deeper moats. It becomes a fight to keep others out and ourselves in – and, sometimes most of all, to keep the happily ever after ending we think we deserve alive and well.
So I’m loving this gentle reminder from Yield Design, who just recently launched a headline series offering free prints (with a $2 shipping fee) to spread messages of positivity. You can request this one here (I just did) and promptly place it somewhere in your own palace, ripe for the crumbling.
