Sheila's Note

It always amazes me just how fast a year can go by! We’re already sailing past the final quarter of the year and I can’t possibly be the only one who still has so much left to do! It sometimes feels like 24 hours aren’t enough for the mountains that need moving, and I can’t help but think of a course I once took that focused on the art of unlearning. Yep. You spend all your life learning and then comes a course on unlearning.
And while it seems like a simple thing to do, it’s a lot harder than you can imagine, letting go of hard learned formats and routines that are such a part of who you are. I once gave up a zumba class because the tutor left and I simply couldn’t get in to the new instructors’ moves. It felt like once the familiar tunes began to play, my feet and body would sway to what I knew I knew and all the new moves were unfamiliar and quite frankly, hostile. Unlearning is not easy, but a key part of evolution. If you can’t do things differently then the changing environment you find yourself in will get the better of you. So as the year zooms by, my challenge to you is to unlearn something, and no one has to tell you what to change. There’s always a very sure clear sign about what needs to change that we struggle with and choose to ignore. Start with that box, and persevere with it until you unlearn!
In this issue we look forward to the new collection by odAOMO called Maji at their gorgeous Village Market Store. Make sure you RSVP your attendance for yet another stellar afternoon. We’re also gearing up for the very first Rembesha Experiential Event! We’re going to be at the Waterfront Karen on the 15th of December from 10am to 6pm. We’ll be showcasing advertisers in our December-January issue and giving you a chance to interact with them at East Africa’s premier shopping and wellness destination. We’ll be serving up fashion with two runway shows across the day, so if you’ve got a hot new line, a product, or service you’d like to shout about, and get closer to your consumer, be a part of our inaugural #RembeshaMe event. See more on the backpage and get in touch with us for your space!
Here’s to you!
