The older I get, the more of a home body I am becoming.
Having experienced the highs and lows life has to offer, | found myself seeking fulfillment, dedicating my life to being a supporting wife, loving mother and running a logistics company with my husband, it was time I created something for me.
I believe it has been a long time in the making, always giving to others, and never giving anything back to myself, I felt I now have the desire, learnings and support system to finally express my creativity and develop something of my own.
After doing a spontaneous candle course with my daughter Chloe, I felt my creativity start to flow again, something that had laid dormant for many years.
Candles became my therapy, my outlet.
It was unexpected, candles were never a thing that I used or help or even had an interest in. Doing this course, sharing this experience with my daughter and now using these candles for some much needed ‘me time’ at home, I have found my peace, my thing and rediscovered by creativity.
Through this journey I discovered the importance of taking time out for me, to not feel guilty for doing something on my own. It has helped me to develop a more positive and stronger mindset.
Through my life’s experiences, I now understand the importance of self care, both for the body and for the mind. That, if we are to care for our loved ones to our fullest, we need to take care of ourself first.
Candles became my therapy, and | hope to share these positive experiences with those seeking to spark — some light into their lives.
