Like many good ideas, this one was born out of a feeling of desperation.
I’m not saying that I was truly desperate.
But it sure did feel that way.
A small sense of sinking. More than slightly overwhelmed. Like it was too much for me and I hardly knew where to turn.
I just needed something – or a somewhere – that I could clear my head and restore my sanity.
Maybe you know the feeling.
And that’s where the inspiration of creating a happy place right in my very own home began….
It turned out to be so easy and yet somehow so effective that I’m surprised that I didn’t come up with it long before.
But never mind. I know it now.
And, in case you might be looking for such a solution yourself, I’m sharing how it came about and, even better yet, how you create one too!
