following my heart...

sometimes this means you have to stretch out of your comfort zone & travel into the uncharted territor ...that is where i am today.

it comes with a VERY VERY HEAVY HEART
that today is my last day at Unity. i have received an amazing opportunity to open up my very own boutique...something i have wanted to do since i was a little girl...

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover." --Mark Twain

BUT with this new journey comes change....
today...it's going to be a hard day!! 
happy & sad!
but i am an optimistic person, so i will focus my energy on the HAPPY :)
.........
HAPPY to have had the opportunity to work at unity.
HAPPY to work with such AMAZING PEOPLE!
HAPPY because of all the friendships i have formed.
HAPPY because the peeps inside unity taught me that  

I CAN DO THIS! 
BUT SO VERY sad to leave...
it isn't goodbye though - we are like a little family inside the walls of unity...i will have a FOREVER BOND & FRIENDSHIP with everyone there.

You never leave someone behind, you take a part of them with you and leave a part of yourself behind.

i want to thank Chris & Angela for the AWESOME OPPORTUNITY to be a part of such an amazing team and company. i still remember the day that angela asked me if i would like to come work for unity....it was one of the HAPPIEST days of my life!
i KNOW that i wouldn't be here today...following my dream... if it wasn't for being a part of Unity - Angela has showed me that YES, dreams DO COME TRUE...
ASK. BELIEVE. and you will RECEIVE, right! :) all the encouragement from my co-workers & our amazing dt and customers – ALL the relationships that I have formed because of Unity... i wouldn't be at where i am at today, without all of YOU!

LOTS OF WONDERFUL
AMAZING
{some a little CRAZY}  :)
MEMORIES!












"Don't cry because it's over,
smile because it happened."
~ Dr. Seuss


this isn’t goodbye…it’s just SEE YA LATER!
With lots of love,

Great news for you but I will miss you terribly! I have been looking at your jewelry website and was already picking out items for special friends for Christmas this year:-)

FibreJunky said...

Big mixed emotions here. I'm really proud and happy for you, but I'm so sad to see you "go". I'm all sniffly. It's definitely not going to be the same without you. You've been my "go-to" person at Unity for the longest time.

I guess I'm going to have to be better about stalking your blog, because otherwise, I'm just going to miss you entirely too much.

HUGE hugs!!!!!

Romaine said...

How exciting for you! I will be watching your blog to see where your new path is taking you! Good luck!
