I want to wish everyone who is celebrating a thoughtful, grateful, and insightful Rosh Hashanah this holiday. 2020 was a year for the books. It is a year that shocked the world to its core, a change I believe we very much needed. There is too much focus in this world on material possessions and comparing ourselves to others – to the perfect mold that society dictates and expects us to be. Ironically, I am in the industry of design, something that is exceptionally aesthetic, though I learned to not be too attached to material possessions a long time ago.
For me, though, my art is far deeper than aesthetics. My art is a representation of my desire to create happiness and a better life for myself, after going through some very challenging experiences. My creations are inspired by much deeper things – serious loss of people I loved – and my art is meant to inspire all those who feel like they are in a bad place and can’t get out. Trust me, with enough work and with the right support system, you can achieve whatever it is your heart desires. It may take time, but that is part of life. I’ve been busting ass for the past 5 years and only now am I starting to see the hard work prove fruitful. Through this year’s battles and struggles, I feel grateful that my life has provided me with these past experiences as they have made me resilient, which enables me to stay strong and thrive during these crazy times. What was affirmed for me this year is that I am truly happy on the inside. I have almost all of what I need in this life, and I will keep working hard for the rest, both professionally and personally.
I hate to say it, as I don’t want to make anyone else feel bad, but 2020 has been one of the best years of my life. For sure one of the hardest years but the best things in life don’t come easy. I got reassured that I am surrounded by amazing people, and continue to cut the toxicity out. I got the opportunity to reconnect to one of my favorite creative outlets, cooking. I got to spend more time with my kids. And surprisingly, the ‘slow down’ allowed me to put more structure into my business, which was desperately needed. This has enabled my team to stay strong, though not without its initial and continued hurdles as well as serious hard work, and to keep thriving towards a successful future. Today and always, I am super grateful. Grateful for my friends, family, clients, and all those who believe in me and continue to support me emotionally and financially. I feel better than I’ve ever felt in my life. And I am also certain that this move to Miami was the right one. It enabled me to open up my heart so I can find the rest of what I’m looking for in my life. I feel inspired and am ready to keep kicking ass. More than ever, I wish everyone a healthy year, as without our health we have nothing. I wish everyone a grateful, happy, loving, supportive, stable, and successful new year. May you count your blessings for all that you do have, because trust me, there are always people who have it worse. Remember that the times that make us most uncomfortable are our greatest opportunities for growth.
For those reading, if I have harmed or done you any wrong, please accept my apologies as I know I’m not perfect. Sending much love around the world.
