Helping Women Build the Framework for a Better Lifestyle
“Life is like legos you can build it in which ever way you choose”.
Hello my name is Linda Darlene. Over the years I have learn just how many times my Lifestyle has changed, and the longer you live, yours probably will too.
When we are young we are willing to experiment and go out on a limb further, not thinking as much about the consequences. As we mature and have more experiences with life, we make choices with a little more thought and planning to achieve our goals. We think a little more about how our decisions will affect others, as well as ourselves.
Lifestyle change can be brought on by choice or sometimes by forces beyond our control. Whatever the case, it will change. What you enjoy, and seek at this stage of life, may not be at all what will be important to you in your future.
Life is one big experiment. You will add and take away ingredients that make up the whole of your Lifestyle seeking to get just the right mixture. Once you find the right combination of ingredients, you will be all set, right? Wrong! You are set for a period of time, maybe years. But after a duration you will need or want to adjust ingredients.
That is why I say Life is like Legos. You may be happy with your design once you have created and finished it. But over time find that you might enjoy a different design even better. So you remove and adjust the pieces accordingly. That is what keeps life interesting.
The one thing I have learned over the years is that my preferences are ever evolving. When I first left home, I just wanted my own place where I could be my own boss. Make my own money and choose whatever was to my liking, that my budget could afford.
I remember how amazing it was to me to be able to have a second fudgebar without asking permission. I loved fudgebars back then! Crazy I know but I was from a large family that was on a strict budget. We couldn’t just run to the frig and grab anything we wanted, we had to ask Mom. She knew how long the things that were there had to last.
I began my infancy period of being a homemaker and I loved that I could finally create my space, to what suited me. I would work to get it just right, then enjoy and admire it. Sometimes I would shift things around to see how they looked over there instead of over here. In those early years, I was a big furniture re-arranger. My husband never knew which side of the room the sofa might be on when he came home. I was playing with my Legos.
Some years later I went back to school to study interior design. I was sure by now, that was what I wanted to do. I finished at the top of my class and went on to find work in the industry.
Being in that industry is like living in a warehouse full of Legos. The choices of color and design unlimited. I found myself looking at many styles and options through different eyes than I would have years prior. I had never particularly like contemporary design, and yet now I felt that maybe I had never given it a fair chance. I worked with it a lot and loved the clean crisp lines and soon began to think it was the style for me. It wasn’t long after that, our home was contemporary.
I lived with my choice for a few years. I found that living within contemporary spaces felt cold and rigid. It wasn’t welcoming and warm. Needless to say, I began to work toward a different design element for my home.
Home is many things. I have learned that where we live and spend our time apart from the world, needs to have elements that are cozy, comforting and inviting. They need to wrap us is all things pleasing to our sight and senses.
I have said all of that, to say this. Our home is a reflection of us, who we are, what we like, what brings us joy, or at least what we feel would bring joy. Through different stages of life we will evolve and finally settle into a style that may take on some variables, but will for the most part not need to be totally redone.
Regardless of your stage of life, your tastes for fashion and design will change. Once you grow and learn through experience who you really are, you will settle a little. Your surroundings are yours to create, like legos, but the elements of the other side of life, the spiritual side, if arranged properly will always supply balance, order, priority and stability.
I would like to help you to understand these elements, there are only 5, so that your life at whatever stage you are, can easily be assessed and then balanced. If your spiritual life is balanced, your framework, then all other elements of your lifestyles will have harmony even among the changes.
