3 Years anniversary – Tribute to my father
3 Years ago I came back from Australia, 3 years ago I had a dream, 3 years ago I launched La Michaux.
La Michaux rose from the idea to create. Create with passion, create something different, something with that little extra, something you’ve never seen before.
I’ve chosen to start with swimwear because for me, swimwear is about extraordinary experiences, like visiting foreign countries with your beloved ones.
Little do my customers know that THEY are the creators when wearing La Michaux. They’re the ones creating memories, something so precious.
6 Months ago was an inescapable melancholy day in my family’s life, my father passed away. It’s something only my closest friends and family know about. I think it’s a typical stage of denial, if you don’t talk about it, it’s like it didnt happen.
But today, writing this first blog, I don’t want any tears. I want to celebrate. Celebrate life and share these thoughts with our La Michaux community to honour my father.
I’ve read this beautiful piece of the Dalai Lama:
“ It’s understandable to grieve when those close to you like your parents die. In my own case, when my senior tutor, who had taken care of me since childhood, died, I felt like I’d lost the rock I’d been leaning on. Then it occurred to me that instead of spending time in grief and sorrow I’d be better trying to fulfill his wishes with enthusiasm and determination”
I know my father is looking over me and that he’s proud about using our family name: MICHAUX.
Today is a moment of clarity that the most valuable asset in life is time, time spent with your loved ones, something we can’t ever get back and that money can’t buy.
To the La Michaux community, thank you for your support.
Especially with the current world pandemic, live with no regrets and send love to your friends and family today.
Time is a gift, spend it wisely.
Future is looking BRIGHT !!!
