A friend once told me about an experience that should have been beautiful and rewarding, but it was destroyed. Destroyed by gossip coming from people she thought were her friends. I’ve heard these kinds of stories before but this time I was struck by the impact those unkind words had on the life of my friend. I was reminded of the many times I had thoughtlessly said insensitive things about others, sometimes even my friends. Had those words made it back to them? Had I ruined an experience that could have been amazing? I decided then that I HAD to do my best to keep unkind words to myself.
Well, that is easier said than done. People are flawed! Amazing and wonderful, but definitely flawed. Something had to replace those unkind words and thoughts or they would keep on coming. My answer was rather obvious, there is something just as impactful as negative words and actions; positive words and actions! I thought of ways I could fill my life with positivity. I started an instagram account that was dedicated to positive quotes and insights. The feeling of sharing positivity and hearing of how it worked in the lives of others was electrifying. I began to think of the struggles of other people and search for quotes I could share that would best support and inspire them.
From this idea of positivity Sunnyside Creations was born. Everyone goes through difficult times, has personal struggles and deals with heartache. I wanted to create something that could be used to support, empower and inspire people in their most difficult moments. Whether through a necklace they put on everyday or a simple quote card on the mirror. Something to remind them that they are loved, they are seen and they are supported. Something to help them push through the hard times and always live life inspired.
