Dear Sweet Friends
By now many of you know that I have recently been diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
I have written this post about it to explain my situation in more detail.
It’s not my tendency to share deeply personal things. However I think these circumstances are a little different.
This is big. This is too big for me to carry like a secret. It’s too vast for me to hold it all in. It’s a journey that is going to affect every part of my life. It’s going to change me. It already has.
And I know that people care. I know that my community, my friends, my sisterhood – you would want to know.
I’ve been wondering how I am going to look after my business through this journey.
Certainly my health and my family come first.
The thing is, I love what I do. I love my creative life. I have the privilege of having a business and a platform where I get to be myself. I get to share my passion, my experiences, my struggles and it’s all part of my work. I created the business this way! To allow me to do this because that is how I want to live. Always.
So now, standing at the gateway of the unknown, I say to you that I will continue to be myself. Although I don’t know exactly what that looks like yet.
I’ve decided not to shut up shop.
I’m going to create, I’m going to blog, I’m going to share.
I will release prints, products and work as and when I can.
I will allow myself all the space and gentleness that I need.
Thank you for being here.
