As a women business owner, mother and wife I’m well aware of the struggles women face in the workplace or while running their own business, as well as in our personal lives. The demands that society places on us can be daunting, to say the least. I’ve met some incredible women over the years. I have been fortunate to have great friends and mentors who are very successful, not only in business but in other aspects of life as well. Some have been faced with challenging illnesses such as Breast Cancer and have courageously endured even when faced with it more than once. What I’ve noticed about the most successful women I know is that they have a common thread that seems to run through them all. I define it as balance.
They have a balanced approach to life even when faced with challenges or obstacles. Here at Laguna Candles we’ve created our new, big “Why” and we call it “Enlightened Living”. As our business continues to grow and we embrace the concept of becoming a global brand, as well as a supporter of causes that we believe in I’ve come to realize that to be enlightened is a true anchor point for us.
To be enlightened means to be balanced, thoughtful, and considerate of others. It also means being patient, humble, loving & kind. Especially when the world says you should be otherwise. Find time to breathe, to walk, to meditate, travel and enjoy your love ones while you can. I guarantee the world and all its challenges will wait.
