Feng Shui in Long Island-A feng Shui Consultant's Dream
On a recent Feng Shui Consultation on Long Island, I arrived at my client's home early. As I waited outside I began to reflect on what a journey it was to get to where I am today.
It was a difficult period in my life; going through a divorce with small children and finding myself having to work six days a week-and feeling a pull SO STRONG to join this Feng Shui Study Class that I kept hearing about. The very first class in the United States that was licensed and accredited in Feng Shui Studies right on Long Island New York.
My job wouldn't allow me the time. Which would mean finding a new one---in less then a month's time. Then there was the money issue-I didn't have it. My ever encouraging mother gave me half and I wondered who I could possibly borrow the other half from.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. I swallowed any possible pride and asked my soon-to-be ex-husband for the money. I can still see him when he broke out in laughter and said "You think you're going to even SURVIVE doing that?"
Reluctantly (and probably out of guilt), he gave me the money. I found another job who WOULD allow me the time off and flexible hours during the time I was in school. I was amazed that at the very last day I had to submit the rest of the money for the course and sign up, I'd done it!
Babylon Long Island--places to dock right in your backyard!
Many of us have a fascination with homes. Certainly realtors do-it's something that's not able to be explained. I've spoken to so many Home Stagers and many of them say the SAME thing: They have ALWAYS loved decorating and re-decorating. Seeing other people's homes and imagining it a different way-the way THEY see it.
Bitter cold -- now if our brave friend could find some WATER--that's ice.
It must be a love we've grown up with and never knew exactly WHY. It doesn't matter.....
Babylon Long Island LOVES it's Lighthouses!
I know this one thing: If you LOVE what you're doing, if you put your heart and soul into it, you WILL succeed. No matter what the odds or how difficult it seems at times. Follow your dreams and they will come true; I've seen it over and over again.
I guess we're all going to fall at times.........
Here's a few shots I took across the street from my Feng Shui Consultation in Babylon Long Island New York. A lovely part of Long Island-only about 15 minutes from my home and 12 years to get here.
And then we'll get back UP...we ALL have more exploring to do!
