Seeing Things With New Eyes
When designing, you need to develop a habit of looking at EVERYTHING you see in a different way than what you normally see it.
By developing a habit of seeing things as they could be, other than as they are, you’ll find designing projects to be extremely easy.
For instance if you see a rock, do you see a rock or do you see an elegant butterfly? Well if the rock is shaped like a butterfly, then you should see a butterfly. If not, then you need to train your way of seeing things so that you automatically look for the beauty in everything.
If you’re an artist, then you probably know what I mean.
I have always had the knack to look at things this way even simple sticks, and see something beautiful in them. My family was always amazed at the creations I made when I was little, out of basic plants and leaves found in my back yard.
The day I realized myself that I had a unique talent was the day I gathered some sticks, a pile of leaves, some pinecones and other dried plants, along with a bottle of Elmer’s glue, and spent all day creating a nativity scene for Christmas.
You see, I was raised in a very poor household, and I was envious of all the pretty nativity scenes my friends had, when all we had for decoration was a Christmas tree decorated with popcorn, and I wanted something pretty to go under our bland tree for my mother that year.
When I finished my nativity scene I took it to my mother so she could place it under our tree and she had a complete fit over it praising me about how wonderful it was. I thought nothing more about my nativity scene other than I had made my mother happy, and although I thought it was pretty as well, I didn’t think it was that big of a deal. When my brother’s saw it, they also started praising my work, which was pretty amazing to me because I was the only girl, with 3 brothers, and of course I was always the one being picked on since I was the girl. My brothers did not spend much time saying kind things about anything I did, so I was becoming really pleased with my scene once my brothers started complimenting me on my nativity scene.
My pride for my nativity scene grew over the next few weeks as more and more friends and family members praised me on the work that I did designing that simple little nativity scene.
Then one day I had an Aunt offer to buy it from me and that’s when I realized, hey, they aren’t saying this to be nice…they really mean it. I of course did not sell it;
