What are all these feelings for? Why do we even have them? What purpose do they truly serve us? Today was a strange and unusual day in my world. It was relieving yet saddening. It was joyous yet maddening. I can't tell if it's my bruised ego talking or my soul that's crushed. Either way my brain is on total overload and I'm not quite sure what to make of it. I feel at peace but also this internal war. I think maybe it's my ego trying to surface and say "Listen to me! I'm hurt over here! Why don't you care about me anymore?" meanwhile my soul is calming the storms while whispering "whatever is meant to be will be". Feelings eh? I poured my heart and soul into this business and literally blood, sweat and tears went into building it from nothing. It was worth every cent, every heart ache, and every single lesson. I have grown so much over the last four years since we opened our doors and I think what made today so much harder wasn't watching others take bits and pieces of the business home with them but, having to say goodbye to the people and their beautiful smiles. The hugs that I didn't want to end. The eyes that I didn't want to stop looking into. The tears that I held back and the love that I spread will forever be a part of my memories. I am sending out a huge heartfelt thank you to every person who made this business possible. Thank you to everyone who came by today to support us and to give me a hug. This business has changed me as a person and as a woman. I'm not entirely sure what the future holds for us, but, I can promise you that it surely won't be boring. The shop may be closed. But, my heart will always remain open. Thank you all again from my whole heart.
