Quarantine and Still
Like most of you in 2020 I had an unusual amount of time on my hands, constant racing thoughts and too much media for my own good…
I was losing ground to the uphill battle I conquered last year with my anxiety. Last year, I had finally got to a point where I felt comfortable with my emotions. That was until about March 15, 2020. Then day by day the anxiety began to increasingly sneak back in to my thoughts.
But this year I had the right tools to address it. I truly believe in timing. And know my anxiety was addressed exactly in time. Because without the tools I’ve put into place the past two years 2020 could have been an even scarier year for me.
Those tools!? First and foremost prayer and meditation. I had practiced for almost two years on how to be still with myself and my thoughts. During this time of increased stillness it came to me that I needed to use 2020 to capitalize on the creativity behind always coco. It would be the time to work on sharing the overarching story I want my collection and brand to tell.
The story is my own. The story is my journey to happiness through simplicity. Two things in addition to prayer and meditation that bring me constant sources of joy is time in my journal and time with my paint brush. So in 2020 I did exactly that. And now I’d like to share those joys with you. I hope that it might remind you of your own source of joy and encourage you to take your new found time and tap into that. At Always Coco our goals is to promote happiness bring awareness to our mental health and encourage growth.
WITH THAT BEING SAID I WANT TO INTRODUCE YOU TO:
