Worth the Struggle

Sometimes love is a hard thing. It's complicated, it tests you, it breaks you down to your most vulnerable self. Going through tough times in your life and relationship can make you question "is this hardship worth it?" It's not an easy question to answer, but pushing through these last couple winter months with personal struggles of my own have helped me to realize "YES" it is. 

Whether you've learned to love yourself or love another human being, reaching that point is truly worth the struggle it is to get there. Without the love for myself and those around me, I wouldn't be where I am today. I wouldn't get through the seasonal depression. I wouldn't get through the slow weeks of business where making a living seems impossible. 

Big shoutout to my family and Bobby who love me despite my biggest flaws and who support my anxiety ridden career choice. Without them, I wouldn't be where I am today. The encouragement they provide me is the best reminder that despite the hardships of being an entrepreneur, I am surrounded by love that keeps me sane.

To get through these slow, cold months, I find solace in creating new pieces. This is why I'm so excited to announce the addition of The Rose Collection by Ramblerose! It shows a truly soft, insecure, vulnerable side of myself that is often masked by my generally optimistic attitude. The truth is, life and love are HARD but we find our own way to cope. Mine just happens to be jewelry making. So I hope you enjoy the soft rose tones of this new collection.

Keep loving. Keep trying. Work for something that is WORTH the struggle. And even if you end up with heartbreak, you have become stronger from the journey that brought you there. Push those boundaries and I promise you will reap the rewards.
