About 2 months ago I was going through emails and working remotely and when I came across one email in particular, and it broke me down. Right there in the middle of a hotel lobby coffee shop.
Kat Schmoyer...your newsletter spoke directly to me that day.
If you don't know her, Kat is a planner/florist/educator/conference founder/does all the things. And she does them with grace and heart and passion (and a lotta pink). In her newsletter she was letting us know of the life events that had occurred this past week, mainly the passing of a loved one.
In her most amazing email she explains their relationship, and pleads us to live a life of purpose. Read an excerpt below, and then go sign up to her newsletter for weekly inspiration filled with grace and positivity and encouragement.
If you're feeling lost after a death or life altering event...this is especially for you.
...there is PURPOSE behind it.
Purpose to do more, be more, show more ... purpose to look you in the eyes & remind you that what you're doing will NEVER matter if you forget about the PEOPLE around you.
I want to know that I took time to make that phone call, text that friend, or write that letter. Goodbyes are hard enough but goodbyes with regret are even harder.
I want my business to allow me to have the life I love. I don't want to give up the life I love - the people I love - for my business.
It might sound like the cliche thing to say when someone dies - the cliche thing to do or feel - but I want to urge you to pick up the phone & make that call.
Be there for those around you. Make time for what matters. And build a life that has people sayin' "she lived a life well loved."
I don't think I could have said this any better. Life is short and sweet, so go out and LIVE IT. Love those around you, be kind, take risks, and most importantly dream big and trust in your path. Start the business, be your own boss, but don't forget to live and love first.
All the best in love and life,
