Cheers to 2011 from Our Sound Home!

Happy New Year, blog friends!

Our Sound Home is glad to be back, refreshed and ready to take on some home projects in 2011. We've got our 2011 Home Project To Do List coming right up - there will a couple posts coming soon about our Winter Indoor Projects and Spring / Summer Outdoor Projects.

For now, here is part of a blog post from one of my favorite bloggers, who blogs at Hygge House (The Danish word Hygge (hu-gah) is a feeling or mood that comes from taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary everyday things simply extraordinary) and Girl At Play. These words have me pumped up and ready for 2011!

Please go out there and do. Live. Don’t be the same as yesterday. Don’t live vicariously online. Don’t use language that has no meaning or talk ideas you don’t really live. Don’t hide. Don’t copy others or live their ideas or life. Don’t fear doing your thing. Don’t fear doing. Instead of reading a decorating magazine, paint that room. Instead of thinking of baking, do up a cake. Run, walk, bike.

Dream big, work harder. Have lots of fun, lift a finger, do something for someone else. Cheer your friends on. Cheer yourself up. Celebrate as much as possible. Enjoy everything. Right now. It’s OK to want more and do more but be present with where you are or who you are with. Don’t rush the situation – even if it’s bad. Move on when you can. Don’t settle. Try everything you can and get over everything holding you back.

Go outside. Go outside yourself. Make a difference, make some change.

Do. I can’t stress that one enough. Take action on your life. Make the change. No more sulking, waiting, thinking, reading, talking about. It’s time. You’re ready.

Cheers to 2011!  Stay tuned to learn what is next for Our Sound Home!


  1. Love those. I almost want to print them out and stick them on the board in my office!

  2. Yeah! It pumps me up to take some action around here!
