I am very VERY excited to announce that the Walking Daydream Shop is now open! *commence fireworks*
I am so excited and very proud of this project!!
I want to explain some of the products to you guys, because each design and product was made and chosen for a purpose, just like you!
The coffee cups and mugs are because I like coffee. I wish there were something deeper than that, but not really. I like coffee and wanted to make a product that I would also enjoy. Is that selfish? I hope not.
The phone cases were chosen because everyone these days has a cell phone. But the designs for the phones are a bit special.
I chose a marble design because (1) it looks great and (2) marble is an unbreakable substance. Have you ever heard of someone just breaking through marble with their bare hands? Yeah, me neither. The marble represents the unbreakable spirit it takes to deal with anxiety. Now, I know that the proceeds go to girls in foster care. So you’re probably wondering, why make this an anxiety awareness plug? Well, why not?
The “breathe” design is the one that I enjoy the most. Not only because I like gold, but because that phrase has meant so much to me. Next to each product is this little paragraph that a friend sent me this morning that I just HAD to share (shout-out to Kelly Marie for being the best friend on the planet):
“Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.”
For all the ones struggling with anxiety or knows someone who does, remember that. It will pass. Just breathe through it.
So, without further ado, here it is!!! (Click on that little gold link below. Go on. Do it… if you want. Don’t ever do anything you don’t want to do.)
Remember that a portion of the proceeds goes to Project Manna Girls’ Home. But every time you hold your phone, or drink out of your mug, awareness for mental health rises.
