“I am the designer of my own catastrophe and the stylist of my own dreams.” ~Ella Patrice
Life is filled with possibilities…
“I am the designer of my own catastrophe and the stylist of my own dreams.“
When you read this what goes through your mind? Are those thoughts more negative or positive? Do you dwell upon all the ways you’ve chosen the destructive, the chaotic, the heaviness? Or do you perhaps think of the ways you chose instead to lift yourself up and keep going?
Life is filled with endless possibilities, possibilities that can have negative or positive, constructive or destructive connotations. The best part? Many of these possibilities are in your control, are in your hands to make with them what you will.
You have the ability to decide if you want to be the designer of your own catastrophes or the stylist of your own dreams. You also have the power to make many of the catastrophes you face that are out of your control into something else, into something you get to define, design, and create.
In other words, you get to choose your actions and reactions to every single thing that life sends your way. You have the power of choice and the ability to design and style yourself, your responses, your way.
It takes reflection, acceptance and an ability to embrace imperfection and a certain amount of comfortableness in order to to take possible catastrophe and turn it into a source of strength. Yes, bad things happen. Yes, you can create your own problems with your actions and reactions, but you do not have to sit in them, do not have to carry them around or let them define you. You can choose otherwise, can design and style yourself in different terms and fresh responses now.
You have the power of choice and design over yourself ~ How are you choosing to design and style Your life today?
Namaste ~ Ella
