Yesterday was a wonderfully sunny day. I was out and about doing my weekly grocery shop when I bumped into one of my neighbours. Let’s call her G. G is one of the most inspiring people I have ever met. A lady who is 74 and has the most appealing zest for life. Whenever I see her, she is so wonderfully happy, optimistic and cheerful.
Last year she became terribly ill with cancer and had quite a rough time. Thankfully, she has recovered and is now in remission but what I was so amazed by was her ambition to continue on with life regardless. She’s since travelled the world and been to the most exotic places. She was so sick that she was hospitalised in Taiwan, she went to see Machu Piccu and is planning an extended trip to Australia via Kuala Lumpur later this year. Her philosophy is no matter what happens, you’ve got to keep living.
This has motivated me even more to keep going with my studies, to become the Interior Designer I want to be. I get many emails asking me how I do it? Have a family, study and blog. It’s a juggling act and there are many times when I want to give up and not continue, it’s taking so long and I feel like I’ll never get there, but then there are moments like yesterday that urge me to keep going and to push forward.
After my conversation with G, my mind started to wonder and I started to look into some inventive ways on how you could incorporate treasures from your travels into your home. I’ve found some idea’s below.
Do you have any travel treasures that you could or do display? If so, what? I’d love to know. xD
