A letter from Peach Stylist, Molly Williams about the importance of community, to anyone searching for more meaning in their lives.
So, I was recently living my best life in Louisville, Kentucky for Peach’s Stylist Conference: SuccessFest. I’m still recovering from no sleep, but it sure was worth it! I’m not going to lie, everyone who has ever come off a conference for their business finds themselves on a high -so I’d be lying if I told you I’m not feeling that same high right now! This time it’s different, though. It’s not one of those feelings that disappear a month later. It’s more of a mindset change; a newly instilled passion that runs deep in my bones and in my soul.
I share a lot about this brand that I’m building called Peach. You all see the posts, pictures, videos and some of you even open your homes to shop V.I.P. style with me. You see the adorable athleisure we offer to women, and you might even be aware of our incredible mission to help women feel good, look good and thrive both personally and professionally. We are a brand that goes so much deeper than our clothing. We are driven by this mission. We lead with heart and authenticity. We are building this brand with purpose, pride and passion; creating a culture that so many women long for -especially in the world we live today, that has become so disconnected. I mean to the point that we’ve forgotten how to have conversation; becoming awkward and opting to sit behind our screens rather than talk face-to-face. We are ALL guilty of this, myself included.
Since I started my fashion business, Peach has encouraged me to pull out of that comfort zone and physically get in front of the women who live in my local community. The number one reason why we put together these Peach gatherings? RELATIONSHIPS. We want to connect, meet new people, laugh and lift spirits. Do you know what percentage of adults feel lonely? Eighty percent. My heart sinks every time I think back to that number. NO PERSON SHOULD EVER FEEL THAT. I say that, because I used to sit in that number. We’ve created this idea that we’re “too busy” to just pause, breathe and take a moment to belong. Hear me out, saying ‘no’ to things you truly don’t have time for is a healthy choice when it comes to self-care, but so is making time to gather. Even if it’s only for fifteen minutes or one hour, just pause and enjoy the relationships in your life.
Over the weekend we spent just as much time, if not more, talking about the importance of personal development as we did professional development. We talked about the importance of taking care of YOU. Becoming more aware of your body and when it needs to reset so you can truly THRIVE in all that you do. After all, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Personally, I’ve been deep in the trenches of motherhood for almost 4 years now and as rewarding as it is, it’s also super lonely- It’s HARD. I know all my mom friends out there can relate. But no matter what you’re up against, you long to belong. You want so bad to find that community of women who would laugh with you, cry with you, inspire you, lift you up and love you for YOU. As women, we all want that.
I’ve been incredibly blessed with the friendships I’ve built over the last year and a half. My Faith has shaped who I am; without it, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I also wouldn’t be the person I am today without Peach.
Over the weekend, I stood up on stage and shared my fears, my failures and my uphill battles that have gotten me to where I am today. I shared how I’ve overcome them, how I’ve pushed the ‘itty bitty shitty committee’, that negative voice inside your head, to the side, and how I’ve been able to tap into my strength of gratitude to push me to new beginnings. It’s amazing what can happen when you have women standing with you. Walking through the deep waters with you. It feels good to know you are deeply cared for and when your cheering section is so loud you can’t hear the doubt. So, when I say we go deeper than athleisure- I’m not just saying that. It’s the truth. We were built on culture, first -it’s our foundation.
Maybe you don’t need the additional income that comes with being a Peach Stylist. Maybe you need the culture. Maybe you need women who will be walking up that mountain backwards holding your hand. Maybe you need women who will inspire you, encourage you and empower you to be your best self. Maybe you just need someone to talk to. Maybe you’re looking for new friends, looking to build more relationships, looking to laugh more, looking for depth. Maybe you didn’t realize it, but maybe you need a culture like we have at Peach.
