Dear customers and friends,
For these last few days of Mental Health Awareness Month, we wanted to take some time to slow down and write you a note of encouragement and support for all of the wonderful things you do.
First of all, we are so grateful for your joyful energy, support, and suggestions that have made us excited to get to work every single day since we started Lucia's 14 years ago. When you've come in our shop, left a nice comment on social media, or shared a story, you've contributed to brightening our day and improving the lives of entire communities around the globe. We can confidently say that you have made a positive impact in the world that will last through generations.
Still, we don't always feel as if we're at our best or able to make a change. Part of mental health awareness is recognizing that every single person has or will struggle with mental health in some way during their lifetime. There is no mental health issue too big or small, nothing that is too out of the ordinary.
We hope that by all of us sharing our mental health journeys, we can help to destigmatize mental illness and allow people to seek help confidently. We encourage you to share with your friends and family, here in the comments, or wherever you feel like you can. When we challenge ourselves to make a statement, we can begin to make a difference in the world of mental health.
Thank you for everything you do,
The team at Lucia's
