BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN HUGGIES
Let go of the idea of perfection — you are not perfect, you are real. Let yourself be flawed, and allow yourself to make mistakes. Recognize that you’re not always going to have it all together. Sometimes your heart is going to break, you are going to get hurt, you are going to feel pain. Don’t apologize for being broken — every time you break you become a little more alive. You become more open with yourself. You become exposed to your sensibility. Every crack tells you a little more about yourself — your strength, your courage, your tenacity — what you’re made of. Do not hide these pieces from the world, they are a part of who you are. You see, the most beautiful people are beautifully broken. Their hearts are heavy but they love the deepest. They have seen the dark but they appreciate everything that shines. They’re compassionate, understanding, and empathetic. Beautiful hearts just don’t happen — and you, my dear, are going to show the world just how beautiful you are.
DESIGNED WITH LOVE AND
WRITTEN FROM THE HEART
Our co-founder and CEO, Amber Glassman, personally writes every inspirational message that accompanies our products. Her heart and soul truly goes into every writing and every product that our company releases.
Through her own difficult experiences, she realized that life is full of ups and downs – it’s important to honor our whole stories, not just certain chapters. Her writings are composed of topics like friendship, love and adventure, but also thoughtfully include the unexpected challenges of loss, hurt, and heartache. She believes that it’s important to give each other the space and grace to move through our pain. It’s only in our deepest acceptance of what is, that we can begin to start the ongoing process of healing.
Even though our company has grown exponentially – and things have greatly changed since launching this from her bedroom – her belief in stories, love for writing and passion to connect others through her words will always remain a constant.
