I believe that my successes and failures are somehow intimately intertwined; that I am a sum total of both.
When I reflect back on my life, I see a tapestry of life’s joys and seasons of deep darkness. It is our flaws that add depth, beauty and purpose to our lives. I find joy from being able to create jewelry that makes a woman feel beautiful; not just on the outside, but from deep within.
I learn, as I grow older, that most rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. And stubbornly refuse to fit in. It is the adventure and uncertainties of the journey, the beautiful chaos of it all that makes life so worth living.
Trust the process.
