Hello dear Friends,
Happy February 1st and 2017! I took some time off writing and I would like to tell you why…
Most of 2016 felt like a Winter season of my life. Several parts of me went dormant, I had to rest and in some cases, I felt like I was hibernating until it was safe to come out. I saw the frills and flowers that had kept me bright and happy wither and I was left bare, hoping my foundation was enough to hold me up.
I allowed myself to cry a lot last year, for myself and for others. There were many losses in my life and in the life of those I love that has reminded me about the value of love and the frailty of life. I must say that I am thankful to be in a new year and equally grateful to have lived through last year.
I have been humbled by experiencing pain and sharing in the suffering of others. I have learned that sometimes what I can do is to be present and that in itself is everything. I have also learned to recognize the grace I have received from God and people in my life. Nothing good in me is brought about on my own, I’m blessed and positively influenced by many wonderful people.
So this year, I’d like to use Style with Buki as a platform that encourages love, beauty, and community. I will continue to post my style but will make room to share they way other people express style, show love and foster community.
Thank you for your support and encouragement over the years, I’m so blessed to have wonderful readers like you in my life.
Hugs and Hi fives!
