When I began, it was because I had tied another of my waist beads in December 2019, and riding the euphoria I felt, snapped a body pic (waist beads and all) and sent it on to a few friends… well, almost all of them.
While my circle is made-up of self-lovers and let-livers of others, they did not all know of waist beads, but all were intrigued. So! I opened an account, and posted by euphoria-driven-body pic…
I didn’t begin for the sake of business. I began for the sake of sharing my euphoria, so it can be yours too. What’s more, I was afraid. I didn’t tell my circle, besides my sister, that I’d ventured into these waters too. I was afraid they’d berate me for driving too hard, for doing too much. I also manage my day-job, you see, at… Deeyor Fiss
Would you believe, 😂, I was berated anyway when confronted? Sheepishly, I sat like a caught toddler during the onslaught of love and concern for my well being. At the end of it, I was encouraged, commended, guided, critiqued and am consistently supported. It matters when you circle genuinely loves you enough to say “YOU’RE ON FOLLY!”.
This is how I came to have a story. My sentinels didn’t say “NO!! That’s not right!!”. They said “Here, check this article on how to do better”, and “did you see this page!? I think it can help you!!”.
I didn’t have a clue what my brand would be, what it would look like. I hadn’t a clue, how I would find enough letters to share my core beliefs, which others seemed to have no trouble writing out before I had a chance to. I sat back and watched so many awesome women portray the best bits of me, the pieces that resonated with my entire make-up, and I decided, the first thing I needed to do, was find a name that meant a lot to me.
I thought, if I found a name that meant the love of art to me, I can find my brand, and I can find the words to write to share my story too.
