We wish you a joyful festive season!
This period of Christmas and New Year is always a period of contemplation and looking back on the past year and of creating intentions of the new year. And sjoe… what a beautiful journey has 2017 been for She Blooms. The intention for this year was to investigate how I could make She Blooms work and what the possibilities are. Creating a base.
It all started with a stunning crowdfunding campaign, where I put all my effort and energy into. And I was rewarded with the beautiful amount of €15000, and maybe even more important, with a feeling of support and love. This year I have experienced how important and nice it is to be supported, that such a nice group of people supports me in my mission. I needed it, that silver lining, knowing that I am on my way and that they way will evolve the moment I take the first step.
Being on this journey I have meet so many special people. People who assure me, again and again, that what I do is super important. That we need openness, the conversation, and that it is too bizar that it is so difficult to talk about one of the most essential parts of life. And that we really may, or must, celebrate ourselves. Sometimes we tend to forget, trapped in the expectations we have of ourselves, and the expectations we think other people have of us.
I have arrived on this point that I have accepted that my message, my vision, my mission, might sounds vague or ‘airy fairy’ for other people, but that I will not longer hide what I see, feel, know and believe. Because that is where She Blooms is about. Saying YES to yourself. In all that you are, in all who you are. And to celebrate that you are divine, exactly as you are.
So, I have decided to celebrate this festive season and take a deserved break and holiday. To start the new year with fresh enery, with the intention to let She Blooms grow organically in that what it is and that what it will be. With the faith that this is what it needs to be.
That leaves me to say bye to 2016 with a big fat thank you for all the cool things it has given me, and to welcome 2018 with all it will bring. Also for you: thank you for being part in this journey. May your flower grow even more into its potential in 2018.
Together we bloom!,
