One thing about being home recuperating on a sick bed is that you get a lot of time to reflect about so much. A memory that continues to occupy my mind is the year 1998, when I began my career as a freelance decorator and personal shopper. Back then, most of my friends were after me to have a website made so that I could grow my business since it wasn't something that was really a 'thing' yet. I remember, how foreign that sounded since the internet wasn't really on the map completely yet. Who could have fathomed 'online' would be what it is now. Besides, all I cared about was creating beautiful things and helping other people live beautifully by transforming their spaces and wardrobe into something that made them feel wonderful and confident. Life was not about spending hours meticulously editing photos to portray this perfectly 'well-lived pretty life', when reality is nothing like it's presented in those tiny Instagram square frames.

As this intense thing called "life" rages swiftly by, I find myself meditating a lot more about the times when life didn't feel like a hurricane, when the twenty-four hours in the day was sufficient to get everything we needed to do accomplished, in addition to having some 'down time' left over to create things that truly nurtured our soul or unselfishly share with others our time, energy on the regular. Those fond memories and experiences make me wish I could turn back time to an era when people mattered more than social media followers and fame.

Though this space is a place that helps distract my mind from the unpleasant things and encounters of living in this me-ism society, I do realize that being able to live life simply as in times past, being able to do things that get my heart full, I need to spend more of it offline - meaning that my postings on this blog will be more sporadic than it's already been. But, I'll still occasionally be posting here, so let's stay together there. Oh, I almost forgot to mention, I'll still continue to update the shop with my latest favorite finds and sales, so keep checking back!
