The lessons I've learned are amazing. I also never knew I was such a student, so interested in knowing more - about everything.
That's one thing this new life on the ground has given me, its grounded me into figuring out what I really like. And what I like is being curious. This journey so far has been one of more self realization then I have ever in my life - given myself the chance to have.
The biggest thing I had on my side over the last year was friends and family but to be honest, I felt far more lonely than I ever in the last year. Its been really hard not to know a soul that understands anything about the new industry I've entered (e-commerce). But when I felt like giving up, I did turn to certain people and just said what I needed to - and they helped me - just by being there. They didn't know the solution, they knew no more about my new industry then I did. But there were there for me, helping me solve my problems. This is the profound energy of community.
When I hit my one year anniversary with the business, I knew I wanted to say something, to express what I have seen transpire in a year. What mattered in all of it was the people. The friends and family I asked to send in pictures of them using their WanderlustStuff while they travelled - connecting themselves to the makers and the place they were visiting - its such a beautiful sight. I'm so grateful because you are who helped spread the word. This video is a very small and amateur thank you to you all.
