Alexandra Stoddard, world famous interior decorator, author and lecturer, originally opened the eyes of millions to the beauty and grace of simplicity in her phenomenal bestseller Living a Beautiful Life and the books that followed. Now, in Making Choices, she teaches us to widen our horizons by helping us feel the pleasure, satifaction, and joy of creative decision making and self-reliance and to discover our inner being, our own destiny, the lifestyle that is ours, and the art of living in the light of self-expression and fulfillment.
The choices we make, asserts interior designer and McCall columnist Stoddard ( Grace Notes ) not only solve immediate problems but contribute to the shape of one's life. ``Your life and who you ultimately are is a step-by-step, choice-by-choice creation.'' Rather than listing specific decision-making rules, Stoddard offers guidelines, citing numerous examples from her own experiences and those of others concerning love, intergenerational family relationships, friendship and professional matters. With the exception of emergencies, when ``biting the bullet'' takes precedence over all other choices, the author stresses the need to resist pressure from others by learning to say ``no.'' She emphasizes that many decisions, such as that of having a child, affect other people. Her wise advice about selecting a mate warns against marrying merely to escape loneliness.
