Mewsletter 1 - Rebrand
The start of 2022 conveniently marks the start of a new direction for MEW Clothing, and for me personally. As many of you I have been on ‘The Journey to the Centre of the Self’ which I largely keep to myself.
MEW Clothing has been hitting some roadblocks recently and something just isn’t working. The truth is I live in two worlds - There is my business/exterior world and my personal/inner world which I try to keep seperate. I believe this is why things aren’t working.
The truth is something deep inside me has been calling me to make my Journey more public. I don’t know why but I feel my purpose is to live my Journey as open and honestly as possible. I feel like an investigative reporter of the soul of sorts, and my creative outlets (including MEW Clothing and my writing) are simply the mediums through which I spread my message.
The first thought that comes to mind is, “Who am I to spread such a message?” To think I am so important must be grandiose and arrogant, maybe even delusional. This thought is what has held me back for so long. My attempt to be modest has been a disguise for my real reason for holding back which is fear. Fear of what people will think and fear of the sheer vulnerability.
I’ve analysed my intentions and know they come from a place of love and not ego. The truth is I'm mad about the state of the world. The world pushed me down until I was deeply depressed. The world taught me to hate myself which manifested as my eating disorders and it breeds the judgement that keeps us divided. I can no longer sit back and accept that this is how the world is. I am going to do what I can to fight it, the same way I have all the things that have oppressed me - such as my depression, my eating disorders and my fears of rejection - and won.
I know my message is valuable because I know I really could have used this information in the past - at the very least it would have made me feel less alone. For the last two years I have been freeing myself from these fears, and being honest about how I did so is the best way I can help. What I’ve realised is, your art is your medicine for the world - your art is your interpretation of the current problem with a dash of hope. Therefore I have concluded that there is nothing more selfish than the artist who keeps their art to themselves.
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “If you want to change the world, start with yourself.” I truly believe if we all undergo change on a personal level this will manifest outwards on an external level. I know this because I’ve felt this within myself. I know there are so many people out there who are tired of how things are. In fact there are millions of us. That’s how many of us can be on the side of change.
For now on MEW Clothing is going to be about the Journey. The journey of following your heart, of freeing yourself from fear, of remembering who you are in truth. I hope that by living my journey publicly I am able to lead by example. But while we are not being modest, the truth is I’m not doing this for the rest of the world. I’m doing this for me, because by now I have learnt that I am truly depressed when I am ignoring the call of my heart. I’m doing this so when I get to my death bed at the end of my life I’ll know I did everything in my power to do what I came to this lifetime to do.
If you want to keep up with the Journey, sign up to my Mewsletter or share this with someone on the side of change. I will be releasing LIVE updates from the Journey every week. Quite a community is forming here, and all are welcome. Thank you to everyone who supports me, and I’ll see you on the path.
