It is time to stretch in a new direction!
While I know that I can be a real thrill to read about scientific breakthroughs, see gorgeous art, explore amazing interiors and get inspired to make changes in your space that change your perspective, and many of you both read and experiment with what you read here (and all of the Internet) to make your life look and feel better, I am excited to say that today we are doing to take one more step into the realm of risk and reward today… if you will join me!
It will be an adventure, for sure!!!
If you really want to challenge yourself, think of ways to be more simple rather than more complicated!
When I first started this feng shui/ design /wellness/ art journey, I thought of all the ways I could create really elaborate designs, make feng shui so absolutely loaded with precision that it was earth-shatteringly impossible to beat and ways to blog that took complexity to a new level.
Intuitively, we look to complexity as a way of being inimitable, to stand apart, to be the mysterious figure with rarefied information. Ultimately, that just makes you incomprehensible.
Easy-to assess, simple and brilliantly-designed good, services, ideas and philosophies are the ones that triumph.
Try to copy one blindly and the result will be flat.
Simplicity is very hard to master.
And it is very worth striving for!
Take the time to simplify. Shake off the layers of complexity. You’ll be amazed how much easier it is to communicate with your world and actually make a difference. xoxo Dana
