“It’s a force that appears to be negative, but actually shows you how to realize your Personal Legend. It prepares your spirit and your will, because there is one great truth on this planet; whoever you are, or whatever it is you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on earth.
And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it.”
-Paolo Coelho, The Alchemist
It started with this small idea, to create jewelry as a side project. I had thought of making jewelry on the side even when I got a full time job. But then for me, it wasn’t enough. I felt the need to do something more. Everyone sells jewelry and I knew I would enjoy it, but there’s this lack of purpose I needed to figure out. Then it dawned on me…. the idea turned into a meaningful business concept that would provide support and encouragement to those suffering from depression.
Link of Hearts was born. For every piece of jewelry I sell, I will give another piece with an inspirational message to someone battling depression as a symbol of hope. Knowing how much I loved wearing these simple inspirational pieces during the years of my struggle, I knew in my heart how it could impact someone else’s journey as well. I believe this is it. The more I envision my goal, the more passionate I become. I now live and breathe this project.
I was also inspired by the business model created by TOMS, and all the other companies with a social mission that followed. I wanted to be part of this movement, and to do something that matters. Each company has its purpose, its own mission. I have mine, and it’s all based on my own story.
Most companies give monetary donation, but my intention is different. I want to connect with people directly who are battling depression and/or struggling in silence. I can offer this one string of inspiration because it takes one to know one, and I know it all too well. I have empathy and so much compassion. I will never forget what I went through and it will forever be a part of who I am today. I want to offer support to those feeling lost in this moment. I may not help them heal, but if I can offer some inspiration to get through one day, then that is my intention. I remember back then, getting through just one day could be the hardest thing one could experience. Trust me, I know.
So, that is my intention. I am finally realizing my "Personal Legend" and the universe is conspiring to help me achieve this right now. I’m taking it one day at a time. And, I can’t wait to see where this new journey goes. I can only envision great things ahead of me. :)
Please help support this project and share it with your family and friends.
