Happy New Year!
This is my first post for 2013. It’s a big year for me, I am turning 40 and my firstborn is turning 13. She reminded me yesterday how much more of a big deal it is for her to be turning into a teen than for me to be entering into my 40′s.
Naturally I was thinking, “What do you know,kid?” …………but then I realized something I know, but had simply forgotten.
All of us have our own concept of how we see the world, each is equally AS important, intense, valid, real etc. They should never, ever be compared.
In my work , I have learned that true connections happen when you erase yourself completely from the equation when listening to the needs of others. My ego has no place in my projects , and what I hope happens, is that clients homes come out being just right for them.( I should also say here that i am very pushy when it comes to what i think is right for clients homes. I only employ this pushiness when i know the end product will be what the client told me they wanted in the first place, I swear
Connection is the key for me this year. I think I am doing it well at work, now if only I could do this better with my friends and family. Listen better, connect better and take the time to see the world through their eyes. Then truly my world will be more colorful.
