Of all of the tees we have created over the years, this may be the one that most closely embodies the FL message. Beauty in the Struggle. The terrifyingly beautiful task of living an authentic life and what does that look like. Maybe it means laying our addictions, fears and struggles out in the open in order to say to someone else, “ME TOO.” For some, it looks like a life that has been shattered but pieced back into a new way that is more beautiful than before. A dream destroyed, but replaced by a new dream. There is a beauty in life that can only be grown out of struggle. It can not be found in an easy, pain-free existence. There is a strength that can only come from being broken. It is the human experience that when we share our hopes, dreams, shame and failures we all feel a little less alone in the world.
