Back in June, I had an idea: to start a creative collection to correspond with my writing, artwork, and simplistic style.
“Miss” (the Mindful in Style Shop), was born June 22nd with the vision to inspire others through my own stories, struggles, and strength. Throughout the years I’ve seen t-shirts, bags, and journals with inspirational phrases on them, so why not create pieces with real-life stories behind the words?
Since developing this concept, my own life turned upside down. My career path was unknown, I was lonely, my financial situation was rocky, and I didn’t know where else to turn aside from isolating and drinking. Thanks to an amazing support system and asking for help, I was able to pull myself out of the darkness after a difficult month. Once again, I found hope- and I want to share it with others.
My artwork, writing, and mindfulness practice truly helped me to see the light once again; although life isn’t easy, I am a firm believer that soul searching, quiet contemplation, and creativity can heal all wounds.
We search near and far to discover happiness, unaware we have everything we need within ourselves. We are not defined by our struggles; we step into our true character by how we overcome them.
Even among the chaos or busy streets, there’s a solace in choosing to look toward to light.
I hope you join along in this journey.
