Legitimately crying right now. This post is long overdue. I have a lot of thoughts on this one so bear with me.

It’s April 14th and it’s now been 3 weeks of being quarantined. Writing this still seems unreal, but it’s real. What a time to be alive. COVID-19 has really taken a toll on humanity and has impacted millions of lives, including mine. My business has suffered and I have had moments of anger, sadness, frustration, loneliness, uncertainty, and confusion. And that’s okay. It’s okay to feel.

Although it has been really f$%#ing hard, it has also allowed me to pause. Stop. Think. Holy shit, I am grateful. Why is it so hard to see that in the moment? Why does something so tragic have to happen in order for my mind to wake up and look at everything differently? The other day I decided to get out. I needed to feel the fresh air on my skin. I got in my car and just drove down the coast. Windows down and just looked out at the deep blue ocean. I didn’t get out of my car and I didn’t need to. That moment in itself was good enough. I love that I can find joy in that.

I left for Australia the day after the US announced this as a pandemic. I can tell you that this wasn’t an easy decision and there was a lot uncertainty at the time. I was flying over there for Evan’s sisters wedding. YES. Crazy right? I met them during this elopement in Yosemite a little over a year ago and we knew that I had to come to Australia for their wedding. Thankfully I made it there by the skin of my teeth. If it was one day later, I would have been required to self quarantine for 14 days in Australia. It’s all so serendipitous.

(I will be including their story and what it was like traveling during a global emergency when I post their wedding. Keep an eye out for that one!)

Now let’s talk about Emily and Evan. First off, these two flew all the way from Australia to get married in their favorite place on planet earth. YOSEMITE

The day the arrived into San Francisco, they were targeted outside a CVS and got 4 backpacks stolen. Which enclosed their passports, wallets, MacBook Pros, cameras, etc. It was devastating to say the least. What a way to start off in a new country for your wedding. When I met them you would have never known something so awful had just happened. They expressed such gratitude and kindness. They are two of the most genuine souls I have ever met and I now consider them family. They have taught me so much– just by simply being around them. All of my love for you two.

What a lesson to be learned. It’s so easy to let unfortunate situations take over our mind and sprit, but we are in control. Don’t let someone or something steal your joy. Try your best to pay it forward and spread love. You never know what is waiting for you on the other side.

I still remember it like it was yesterday. As we made our way to Taft Point, a wave of emotions came over me. Tears starting streaming down my face. I have never seen a sunset like that in my life.

Pure bliss.

Can I just say what a relief to discover someone who genuinely understands what they’re talking about on the web. You definitely know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people must read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular since you definitely have the gift.

Aw, this was a really nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

I am the co-founder of JustCBD company (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently looking to expand my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain give me some advice ! I thought that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape stores and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anyone could suggest a trusted website where I can purchase CBD Shops B2B Companies I am currently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most suitable choice and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
