Editor Loves: I Need A Hero

By Anna Griffin, Editor In Chief

Thankfully I am naturally positive, but like everyone I’ve had to conquer a myriad of emotions to maintain my equilibrium through months of Covid-19. Finding joy in the uncertainty has become a daily ritual, and from morning cuddles with my rescue pups to speaking to my Mom overseas in England, I have made a conscious choice to find happiness where I can. There have also been the products that have in some ways lifted my spirits, whether they are new finds that have brought me comfort through this crisis, or much-treasured, “hero” pieces from my closet that have given me a smile. That they are all eco-conscious is a given, but again gives me a lift because beyond being great products, they all contribute to a lighter footprint on our planet.

As we continue to navigate through the uncertainty of 2020 and Covid-19, finding the joy in each day has never been more important than now. Finding what makes you feel good and keeping spirits up is paramount, because feeling positive during hard times might really be our biggest hero of all.
