This candle was inspired by and is dedicated to my friend Liz Lamoreux and her inspirational blog
In February 2007 I found myself in the midst of excruciating, sudden, fundamental and sweeping changes: the end of my dog Elliott's life, the end of my marriage, buying a house by myself and moving to a different city. It was extremely difficult to stay in the present moment; I was either reliving the past or fearing the future. What I've been taught is that we're always safest in the now. Especially for my boy Elliott I had to refocus my mind a thousand times a day into the present, and I began saying "be present, be here" as my mantra.
Eventually a little voice inside said, "You need to make a candle for this." So here it is. It has worked wonders to help me stay in the now~which is all we ever have~and I hope it helps you, too.
