Let's address the last one today. Live with broken items in your home long enough and you will begin to believe, even unconsciously, that you are broken. Like attracts like in all aspects of our lives.
Let me tell you a quick story. My grandmother would never allow herself to have something new. When she passed away, all the new blouses and sweaters we had given her at Christmas over the years were still wrapped and stored away in their Christmas boxes. Many were over 40 years old! She purchased her clothes at the Salvation Army (which is just fine), but instead of spending $2.00 for a blouse with tags on it (never worn), or a higher quality pre-owned item, she'd find the oldest, worn-out $2.00 blouse on the rack. Her life was a reflection of the items she surrounded herself with.
We may not choose to surround ourselves with Waterford, Gucci, Versace, etc., (all the name brands the 8 would love), but we also do not have to be "broken".
Reconsider the broken or negative decorations you surround yourself with in your home. If you can, get rid of them. You don't have find them a new home - they are inanimate objects. If you can't get rid of them due to sentimentality, package them up nicely and put them away in the top of your closet. (Someone asked me what a negative item was. Items such as fearful Monster statues, items belonging to a parent/family member that you feel ill towards, etc.)
When buying a new item for the home, do the best you can within your budget. Don't always gravitate to a dollar store for the cheapest item on the planet. Add color that makes you feel good. Add designs that make you feel good. If you're on eBay shopping for pre-owned, go for the quality items within your budget.
Even name-dropping to yourself, can perk you up!
