Unpacking Toxic Positivity & Our hand-sanitizer is finally here...

Hello Hello,
Hoping everyone has adjusted and processed all that the world is facing right now. There are so many layers... I will share my feelings and hope that they are relatable or resonant with you.

I am part of a whatsapp cousins chat with a few of my close female cousins that I grew up with. Everyone is in different stages of life and hearing all of their opinions, observing how they keep busy and thrive during this period keeps me on my toes. When one of my cousins a mother of five started venting and throwing in the towel yearning for life to get back to normal... I was trying to boost and inspire her... she kept replying to my comments with two words - TOXIC POSITIVITYI think how can finding the silver lining be toxic? How can seeing the light in the darkness be harmful? It is a coping mechanism like anything else. Staying positive, having hope and seeing the good has always been the way that I get through hardships. The mental loop that I feed myself has to be one that pushes me forward.

All people want essentially is to be seen and heard. Sulking is therapeutic in its own way, confronting and voicing deep feelings of frustration can be cathartic. So why deny them or bury them inside? It is brave to share how you feel and then be seen. When I lost my mother, I remember feeling so invisible when people told me that everything happens for a reason... she is in a better place. Those words were an epic fail for me... what did help me was when someone actually saw me, looked me in the eyes, allowed me to cry, speak and feel releasing what I was holding. So now with this global pandemic who is holding the whole world, there is no leadership or higher power telling us everything will be okay. We all need to find our own support to be held...

Right now I feel blessed with life, love, family and opportunity. I have been through my moms illness and loss, business ups and business way downs, pregnancy, childbirth and post partum- have all of these experiences prepared me to face this? Have I done the work? The work is never done... right now my work is finding balance within all of this. Accepting  this new world and being able to thrive in it.

And speaking of thriving I am so proud of our latest product launch... What a labor of love… we had this idea before the lockdown started and wanted  to create a delicious sanitizer with our little spin of adding crystals for good vibes. We ordered all of our ingredients which then got rerouted or couldn’t be delivered bc of the pandemic, designed our labels which were then delivered to my home to be carried into the studio. We finally made this happen after jumping through so many hoops to get here what a victory. This has been one of my most satisfying objects to get out into the universe as service. So excited to see these launch on free people but you can find a few on our website now too.  Making no claims here just a beautiful feel good, small business creative product!
Sending love,
