What does “YOU DESIGN YOUR LIFE” really mean?

November 12, 2022

  • I have the power to design my life. Really? In these times?

Firstly let me explain what Design is.

Design, in essence, is the act of harmonising moving parts. A balancing act of elements and colour, shapes and forms. Space and clutter, small and big elements. We, as designers, do not always have control over the type of components we receive to get a job done. But with editing, time, insight and understanding – a designer will get to a harmonising endpoint that meets an objective or a goal of the Design that communicates what the intent might have been. 

Design is ever-changing and never stagnant. 

And So is life – ever-changing and never stagnant. We don’t have control over life’s happenings or events that come over our path. With adaption, time and insight, we can rearrange goals or direction within the circumstances dealt with us until we get to the harmonising outcome that works for YOUR particular season of life. 

It is exciting to know we ALL have the POWER to Design our lives. Be creative, have faith and take the ebb and flow to shift things around until it works for you!
