Much like life in general, most creative work, especially interior design work, always feels like a work in progress. Is anything every really done? Usually when it’s deemed done, I see things I want to change, improve, or I get an idea that’s altogether different. It doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the end result. I just think of creative projects as ever-evolving. My business itself is a work in progress. It’s a baby right now but there’s a lot of room to grow. One of the ways I plan to grow soon is by offering an online shop on my website, as well as B.home original products. I have a lot to learn. But I’m having fun, and trying not to rush the things that will (and should) take time.
I don’t think we can fully appreciate our creative pursuits and projects until we recognize how far they, and we, have come. The satisfaction, the fulfillment, the reward…all come from the progress you know you’ve made and the things you’ve learned along the way. If we were handed our end goals on a plate, we probably wouldn’t appreciate them, or even recognize them as our own. We want to see our stamp on them, but we want to know the journey has made a mark, a lasting impression on us as well. We want to be changed by the process. I do, at least. I know that my work and I will both be better for it.
