“What’s the greater risk? Letting go of what people think – or letting go of how I feel, what I believe, and who I am?” Brene Brown
Can you relate?
Refind Silver Jewelry has emerged from a place of hitting rock bottom. For years, as a perfectionist, I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders and it eventually broke me. I was trying to be the best at everything- a daughter, a sister, a friend, an employee, a wife, a mom, you name it. Not wanting to get left behind, I was always trying to either catch up or keep up.
Until I couldn’t.
Eventually the anxiety and the panic attacks were becoming so regular they were expected, my whole body was hurting from the stress I was carrying. I wasn’t sleeping through the night. I had lost my appetite.
I could tell you about the exact moment everything went sideways, the TSN turning point, but that’s another story. I’ll go so far as to say, in that moment all it took was for one more unrealistic expectation to be piled on and it all come tumbling down.
I found myself at rock bottom, completely and utterly burnout and exhausted.
I needed to slow down, let expectations go, re-evaluate and ‘refind’ myself. Unpack the messy and reinvent my life.
My philosophy has alway been, ‘everything happens for a reason’. Sometimes we can’t see if when we are in the minutia, but with time, it unfolds. And so, here we are.
