Perhaps it's not just me,
are you also feeling a tad burnt out by all this stress?
Sure the summer weather is fabulous,
the scheduled lifting of restrictions feels good,
yes there seems to be more freedom of motion
as we return to stores again,
visit with friends more readily,
...but oh I'm weary.
Perhaps it's the fact
ALL the summer shows are cancelled! WTF
My hands are still tied as I wait
suspended and longing to participate
in the boisterous creativity of a craft fair.
Meet with you again, chat face to face,
dress you up, delight when you light up in the mirror.
Are you also still on hold and feeling worn down by it all?
Some days I feel more resilient and resourceful than others.
Today, I Just thought I'd let you in on where I'm at
knowing full well this too shall pass,
as it has each time this cloud surfaced over the last 16 months...
One thing that really CHEERS me up is hearing from YOU
about your experience wearing Laila Goddess.
New client Janet wrote :
"...wanted to tell you I have received several compliments
on the bright blue top I bought from you.
Total strangers have stopped me
to tell me it looks great and they
loved the colour and pattern. So thank you!"
Another new client poignantly texted this
after her Show Room visit:
I don't think I realized how down on myself I had become-
I was trying so hard to convince myself that
my weight gain was understandable
while I got my mental health back on track,
but I have not been ok with it.
I think there is an underlying terror that I will go back
to being that big girl again, which I vowed would never happen.
Spending time with you and your beautiful clothes
was the succor I needed pull my focus back
to where it needs to be. Thank you."
Thank you for being part of the forward motion we all strive for.
The day actually got better with a Show Room visit, it's so great to simply share, in person, what's been missing.
Take good care of yourself!
Till we can meet again,
