The Weekend


By: Candice Kumai

This weekend was one of those moments, a defining moment stopped in time where I had to take a second to took deep inside and say, I love my life. I love my posse, my family, my job, my team, my creative artistry, and most of all I love my big heart. I’m never going to stop loving so deeply, so greatly.

I said to myself, I am glad it’s over. I got through the worst time of my life. I came out an even more powerful, honest, true and sincere person. I almost cannot believe how deep, how great, how LOUD the lesson.

I believe in myself and my work now, more than ever before.

Humility shapes us into who we are supposed to be, it makes us better individuals.

Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself you are going to come out on the other side, glowing. My Dad always told me I’d come out of this a better person. I never believed him. Now, I believe. Now, I can feel the weight lifted, the relief and the measure of how much I have grown.

I have lived through the worst. I am convinced that it gets even better, once you hit the very bottom, there’s nowhere else to go, but up.

Here’s to living a life that matters, creating meaningful content, spending more time with those you truly love (and those who truly love you!) Your big heart deserves to be loved whole heartedly. Amen.

With grace, ck
