Today we’d like to introduce you to Chandler Stephens.
Chandler, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
At the beginning of 2018, I set my intentions and goals on improving my lifestyle and focusing on wellness. In the past few years, especially recently, I’ve noticed in my life the link between my mental health and external factors like impulsive consumerism and lack of a dedicated self-care routine. I started to realize how much I relied on buying items and buying into experiences, and ultimately spending money on things that had fleeting satisfaction.
I found myself compromising my ability to seek out sustained happiness by putting other things ahead of my own wellness. I ended up in circumstances where I was surrounded by people and situations that drained my positive energy and motivation. So at the top of the year, I decided to share some of the strategies and thoughts that have helped me free myself from life choices that don’t serve my highest self–that is what Liberated Space is all about. I want to encourage others to tap into the energy within to transform their own lives.
I love sharing what I learn and how I choose to live my life in hopes that others will be inspired to cultivate wellness, peace, and a better life that serves their purpose. In my own life, I’ve been more mindful about what I purchase, what I consume, the health of my relationships, and the spaces in which I spend my energy. I want to inspire others to look at the way their immediate surroundings can affect their mental health and how the power of habit can change your life for the better.
I would love to expand my impact by helping others simplify and organize their homes while executing creative vision with an artful eye through interior design. As an artist, I aim to express myself through different media and through tangible forms. My love for art, design, and natural beauty is evident in the way I live my life and will inform my work in the near and distant future.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
There have definitely been challenges in getting to where I am. 2018 was a transitional year for me, showing me just how far I can go with the right intentions and energy behind my work. I’ve had to let go of ideas and relationships that I no longer had the capacity to hold onto. But in the process of letting go, there is so much healing and transformation that occurs.
I’m no longer captive in the thought patterns and choices that held me back from being my best self because of fear and doubt. The unknown can be vast and scary, or it can be filled with opportunity and ideas ready to be fulfilled. Changing my mindset and the quality of my thoughts has been the biggest challenge, but there is no going back once you’ve accessed a certain level of awareness within.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Liberated Space – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I started Liberated Space as a lifestyle blog that highlights principles of minimalism, self-care, and lifestyle choices that encourage personal freedom. After taking the time in 2018 to cultivate a better lifestyle for myself, I’m eager to take what I’ve learned to delve deeper into creative direction, on-set styling, interior design, and visual art.
My passion is in helping others actualize their vision by using my experience in product and brand development, merchandising, and sales strategy. As a freelancer, I’m so grateful to be able to pursue different avenues to express myself creatively. My unique interests, diverse skills, and life experiences allow me to shine in my own lane, with respect for others.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Looking ahead, I’m excited to execute my visions for interior design, art installations, publishing my work, and including more collaborations in all areas. I’ll be transitioning my platform from a personal lifestyle blog to highlighting more design work, collaborative projects, and pushing more boundaries visually.
I’ve always been drawn expressing myself in a tactile way, so I’m looking forward to expanding that passion. I want to continue to create beautiful products and experiences that will enhance the quality of life for anyone coming in contact with my work.
