perfect imperfect life …
Do you have a “plan” for how your life is expected to go and then it simply does not happen that way? I did.
For me, I was taught at an early age that you go to school, get a career, get married, have kids, move to the suburbs and then work hard at the same job until it’s time to retire at the good age of 65. Sound familiar? I never questioned this until my “plan” suddenly stopped, after 6 years of trying to become pregnant, when a doctor told me I had less than a 1% chance of having my own child and that I should give up the idea now… Little did I know, it was one of the best things that could have happened to me.
As a designer, I have the skills to create beautiful art. I use these skills in my profession as a lighting artist for computer animated films, as well as in my everyday life through photography, home design, and crafts. But the real superpower of a designer is not the creative work itself, but the ability to use the same skills to affect your overall happiness. Instead of accepting that there is nothing to done when given an impossible situation and feeling defeated, I see the opposite – I look for the potential and hidden beauty in the situation to solve the problem. I think of multiple alternatives and start testing, visualizing and iterating multiple solutions and reframing what a perfect life means. Life is full of imperfections and rarely does everything
I will be documenting my journey as a working mom looking for the elusive work|life balance as well as my journey as an entrepreneur as I utilize my designer mindset to help me overcome obstacles. I hope you join me on this journey.
