"Positive Choices!" being preached so clearly to our ears today has made us slightly more aware of our effect on the environment we live in. In doing that, it seems to have replaced direction and focus. Life is about living in the now, being present, planning your next move to plan the move after that. Choosing wisely is great, but choosing wisely without direction is lazy. If you are able to wake up every day, you are able to attain a well-designed life.
Designing your life is much like creating content and designing apparel. We are essentially putting our ideas and thoughts into tangible creations that are daunted all over the World. In order to have a vision of what we want these creations to look like, we have to view them from an unbiased perspective but with a purpose to align it with our creative direction. This is important because without direction, we aren't progressing; and if we aren't progressing, we're moving backwards.
Our decisions act much the same way, they too are influenced by bias and direction. Making art upon the canvas that is your life is ultimately everyone's own unique design. You too, are the designer. You must decide which sketch looks better, or to live in black and white or color. Our choices that are positive AND well-directed are powerful ones. These choices give us momentum. Momentum moves us forward and keeps moving us forward.
Want a life well-lived? Construct a well-designed life.
