My dreams have always been family oriented: marry, have children, own a house. And I have been lucky to have achieved all of them early in my twenties.
As the head of the family, the one that stays home with the kids and tries to not pull all her hair out, I want to make sure that my kids grow up to be great men, great leaders. I want my sons to be respectful, polite, charming, intelligent. This means that there is only way one to achieve this: rules. Or more like 20+ rules! Some of my rules include not leaving socks laying around the house, or rinsing your glass of milk before it becomes a horrible crust at the bottom, clean after yourself, or how about washing your hands carefully without leaving a huge water mess around the faucet?!
But these examples are not do or die rules, yes they are important to me but they are not deal breakers at all. I do have some Golden Rules…and thanks to Inspired 4 You DecorI can display them at home!
Inspire 4 You Decor offers great wooden signs that are awesomely handmade! Mary, the owner, is extremely creative and every single one of her signs are stunning. The moment I laid eyes on the signs she sent me for this review my eyes poped out, a huge grin appeared on my face, and my head started spinning around on the look for the spot be displayed on.
It didn’t take me long to find the special spot. I did have to rethink the location, you see…I have been wanting to make a magazine mirror and this was going to be the wall for it…but what better place to share wise words with those you love than the wall that they will see first when they come home and see last before they head out? I would rather remind myself of the rules in life than to see myself in the mirror for the nth time that day?!
In Our Home ($40), shares what my family is all about with anyone who goes through our door. We do family, respect, mistakes, second chances, laughter. With this signs people can know what to expect the moment they are invited into our home. But this is also a reminder on how to live life.
There is so much more that I’s in this world. I want my boys to grow up knowing that they are in charge of their lives and to live them fully with others in mind. ‘Cause this world is not only about us but we, as a whole.
Be Patient Life Rules ($40), teaches us to take a breather every now and then, to love and be grateful. My favorite parts of this sign are: “no whining” (my boys still have some work to do on this one!), and “know you are loved”, because, as corny as it might sound, we all run on love!
Remember When You Go ($60) is my upmost favorite sign that reminds us to open our eyes to the world and to really see and hear what surrounds us. There is nothing better for my boys to learn than to take everything in, to not get so entrapped in silly stuff but to see the whole picture, to be kind, and thankful.
These signs are true eye opener and mind refreshers. Sometimes we get so caught up on what is going on in our lives that we easily forget what is truly important. Small stuff is just that, small. There is so much to be thankful and greatful for. And sometimes all we need is a reminder
