How We Got Here

 

You can have it all, don’t give up, have patience; these are phrases that have often been said to me time and time again. I was following a pre-paved path that society tells us we need to follow to be “successful.” Go to school, get a good job, work hard at it, get married, start a family, and live happily ever after. Following that dream had us moving 7 times in 12 years! But what happens in the “ever after” part? What are the goals and directions after that? I would be lying if I said I didn't feel lost in the chaos of motherhood, working, and the many other demands of adulting (I know I made it a verb). I was always focused on the goal, the end result. I literally never stopped to question any of it. I constantly focused on pleasing others in my career and relationships. 

 

 What do you do when that constant motion causes cracks in your once stable foundation? Well, I decided to slow down, to say no, to redefine having it all, and to create my imperfect perfection. I decided to live a life that was authentically and apologetically true to myself. 

 

Putting this story into words makes it sound so simple, however, that linear line that we expect life to be when we are younger, for me at least, was often more like my two year old's scribble on a piece of paper. Loaded with twists and turns and ups and downs. Many failures, some victories, and much growth. A hobby to me was always something for other, non-busy people...whenever someone asked me what I liked to do for fun I would always reply how my hobbies included long walks to the bathroom alone and copious amounts of coffee. (Sarcasm and deflection are tools I often use in my toolkit).

 

Then one day after being forced to slow down, even more, for Mother's Day I decided I wanted a candle making kit. I know, who asks for a candle making kit? Perhaps a day at the spa would have been the more likely choice, but I needed something that was mine, something I could create from start to finish (and had nothing to do with cooking as that is a life skill I have yet to learn). They say when you are doing something your passionate about everything else melts away...maybe for the first time since I was young I discovered that for myself.

 

Candles are a long part of our history and there is something primal and relaxing about having that where you live. The decor, scent, and flame while reading a good book, taking a bath, or cooking in the kitchen (or trying to) adds a special element. I hope you enjoy these candles as much as I have!
