This year, I made a business decision based on the observation that the world is rapidly and drastically changing. And I am drastically changing.
And wow - that is happening now. Not that I ever predicted this awful pandemic that is sweeping across the world, but more that the fast paced, chaotic vibe in the world seemed to be building. The changes felt drastic. Everything seemed to be heightened.
Everyone pulling and pushing; that whole mind-set of "everyone out for themselves." It was here well before the pandemic. This vibe has been swirling around us for a long time, but wasn’t always obvious. It’s easy to be lulled into a sense of security. It's easy to think this is how it is supposed to be; busy and going through the motions.
And now, the world has suddenly been thrown off course in the most abrupt way. I would never have dreamt the world would suddenly shut down, or keep our children home for weeks or even months. I would never have imagined the world essentially screeching to a halt.
But, evidently, it happens. And everything has changed.
The thing is, we’ve all faced this on a personal scale at some point in our lives. We’ve all experienced loss, uncertainty, tough times and worries about the future. It’s just that this time, we’re all in the same boat.
So during the pandemic, I was presented with an opportunity to tweak my gears a little bit and work on a new venture; providing others with all-natural wellness products and candles that you can feel good about using!
It felt right to give people the education on knowing how to increase their wellness, and even more so now.
At Velvet's Hammer +Co, this space is committed to providing content focused on self-love and holistic awareness, community and daily motivation. I hope you'll find a good balance of living with intention tips and tricks- think using crystals, essential oils and holistic practices, chronicle of my journey in finding and defining success, snapshots of my life by the seashore and sharing my passions all while being my real and authentic quirky self.
To know who you are and what your purpose is, only becomes more important in the face of uncertainty. No matter how things change in life, it’s the one thing that remains the same.
And to have that certainty and clarity about who you are and what you’re here to do gives you confidence within yourself that you’ll always be heading in the right direction. The path you take may change, but it will always be toward that north star.
The purpose of Velvet's Hammer +Co is to help others find their purpose and passions along with providing rich holistic approaches to life , and I am so grateful to be able to offer that to you in this way, right here in my little area of the internet.
