Phil: Yeah, I only ended up swapping out one thing mainly: my desk with my dresser. But there aren’t many practical options when your room isn’t too big. Everything else seemed forced. I did try everything, though. It took hours and all my shit was in the center of my bedroom. I did finally do some things I’ve been putting off, though. Like putting my plant into a bigger pot and relocating it near the window. And putting my hat collection closer to my mirror so I don’t have to walk across the room every time I want to see which hat I’m feeling. This was the first time I’ve done a major rethink of my room since moving in here 15 months ago. Not too shabby. One of my last reiki sessions, I was told that my room needed new energy and I should consider rearranging a few things. I did what felt right, in the end. I tried swapping the bed and the TV setup altogether, but it just felt forced. It felt like it would have been the same exact setup I have now, but backwards, just for the sake of being different. So I nixed it and went with what felt right immediately.
Bruce: I think I wrote this challenge when I already had benefited from the epiphany that doing it brought on. Several months ago I did a full overhaul and furniture addition/subtraction and entire mixup of the room that really helped me a lot. That being said, as much as I brainstormed I couldn’t think of ways to switch up my own room. Luckily, this challenge perfectly fell on a practice that I had so I had to do a lot of cleaning up and clearing of my basement so that I could host my friends to have a space for them to create in with me. Admittedly the affair was pretty lackluster. I wish I could say or could have shown a 90s movie style montage of the renovation of a space that felt cathartic la admittedly the affair was pretty lackluster, I wish I could say or could have shown a 90s movie style montage of the renovation of a space that felt like a miraculous catharsis but I sort of benefitted from this challenge ahead of time. I still really like the idea of switching up the workflow of a space every once in a while just so that you can appreciate all the decoration and can challenge your head a little more.
