Daria is a designer living in beautiful Victoria, BC, who loves helping clients create a home they truly love, and that brings them joy and comfort.
My journey thus far has taught me some lessons that I want to share and hopefully enlighten you to live a fulfilled life, full of passion, doing what comes naturally to you. I struggled for years, wondering what I would be when I grew up. At thirty, I was still figuring it out, and at thirty-four, I went back to school studying Interior Design. In my first class, I realized; this is my place. All my life, I loved being creative and making things look beautiful. It dawned on me that it felt good to do what I loved and was naturally good at instead of the thing I should do to pay bills. As one of my favorite poems says, The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost, “I took the road less traveled by, and it has made all the difference.” So, I decided to take a leap of faith and left a good city position to try and find my way by following my heart. I wanted a career where I could use my talents, and that brought others joy. I loved helping to create beautiful homes that people loved to be in.
We all have different talents, interests, and desires which make us all unique. I say follow your heart; it will always lead the way to your ultimate happiness and success. Remember, every moment can be a new beginning. So, if you try something new and it turns out not as planned, try again, do not give up. My path has taken work, and there have been ups and downs. It is all about the journey; if you are doing what you love, then it is worth the ride.
This day is my birthday. I always make time on my special day to celebrate me. I share this to remind you to celebrate you on your special day and every day! We are all here to make a difference, let’s show our gifts to the world to make this a better, more beautiful place.
