Goodbye APPENDIX & HELLO all of you lovely people!
I missed you & you & you & you!
Ahhhhh it's SO nice to be back. Being sick really burns you out but you already know that I'm sure, sometimes we just forget. I was trying so hard to ignore being sick for so long because I didn't feel like I had a good excuse to be feeling the way I was feeling but let me be the first person to give you permission to rest when you need to. Even if you don't know why you need a break, you owe it to yourself. You don't owe anyone an explanation. Take time for yourself, say NO to things. Embrace your inner three year old. They seem to have the whole no thing down. Saying no is one of the hardest things for me to do. How about you? I don't know about you but I hate cancelling on people or not being able to help. You can't give to others what you don't have to give in the first place though. Something to chew on. Try not to spit it out.
*When I got out of surgery and was so uncomfortable and in pain my first thought when I got home was wow it is nice to have a break. I knew as soon as I got out of surgery that I could have my life back again. What a blessing! I barely know what to do with myself, all my new found energy and words. Oh how I missed words. My brain was so broken when I was sick, MAJOR creative, major everything block. Apologies if my posts didn't make sense or our conversations hahaha just a casualty of being sick. Your brain is focusing so hard on getting better that there isn't much room for anything else as those around me constantly reminded me.
Please see previous post about my ER visit if you are confused as to what is going on but as my surgeon said, the surgeon in the ER just wanted to send you to a better one that knew what was happening haha We always learn things through trials. In my case ALWAYS GET A SECOND OPINION. OR A THIRD OPINION. If you know that the first one doesn't make sense or feels wrong to you. DON'T GIVE UP. Being defeated is the worst feeling in the world.
That being said that is one reason why I started this company. I never want anyone to feel defeated getting ready for your day or an event, your closet or a dressing room should never do that to you. Yet so many times we are often driven to tears by that hole in the wall full of fabric, lies & sequins. A second or third opinion never hurt anyone. In my case a second opinion was the difference between life and death. Death of not being able to pursue my passions, dreams and living with a bomb inside of me that whenever it wanted would one day get set off. I know it is not always going to be that extreme but we owe it to ourselves to never have to feel defeated when there are so many resources out there.
I would be lying to you if I did not tell you that this has been a very difficult year for a variety of reasons but being able to do what I love has kept me going. It was so hard to take a break from it to focus on my health and myself but I had to if I wanted to continue to pursue my dreams of helping YOU. So let me be your second opinion or your third opinion. Don't live without hope. It's the worse state to be in. There is always hope somewhere you just have to keep looking for it.
*****Thanks for all your patience. You are so important! Appreciating today as well as what's on the horizon for CUT CHIC! ******
