Fragile // Handle with Love

Fragile // Handle with Love

First and foremost, I would love to share my sincere "thank you" for being a part of our 10th-anniversary celebration during the month of June. Our team and I soaked ourselves in all the love, kind notes, thoughtful gifts, and your pure excitement for the birthday artifacts. Thank you. 

As we marked and passed the big milestone for BK, naturally, the question of "what's next?" comes to our minds. It's a little bit like a new year when we can reset our goals for the upcoming year, isn't it? 

And I love that I can simply say "I don't know". 

I am embracing this beautiful moment of being okay not knowing. It reminds me of the time when we just started the business. We didn't know where we were going. We just did what felt right, one day at a time. I also know with my inner confidence that the current state of mind is far from being lost. I might not have a business plan packaged beautifully but I have family mantras that keep me intentional. These mantras never tell me exactly what to do but they give me a reflective mirror to constantly check my priority. They are my guiding beacon whenever I steer the ship for BK. I am writing, scribbling, and jotting down ideas that are seeds for what will be next. My Traveler's Notebook currently has a "Fragile // Handle with Love" brass charm on it and I take the message pretty seriously. I also feel the great companionship when I am reminded how our extended BK friends are also pouring their hearts out on their journal pages. Trina's story about how we can be brave to write and share our current "incredible times" on our personal notebook gives me the energy to keep going as I explore my inner soul. Andrea's Love for Analogue story and how she leans on her analogue tools to observe, listen, and feel more from the world around her inspires me so much. 

I would like to leave this love letter with this thought.

Contemplate deeply.
Dream wildly.
Hope wholeheartedly.
