These days, it’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else around you is doing, being and becoming successful at and it’s really easy to get to that terrible place where all you do is compare yourself to that person or group of people. Then the why not me questions come pouring in? Why can’t my life be as perfect as hers? Why can’t I meet the right guy? Why can’t my business become successful like hers? Why can’t I just be happy?! These questions suck, and you shouldn’t yourself these. Everyone is different and has a different path to find the things that make them happy, but let’s face it. Sometimes it’s just not that easy to remember that.
Enter Jess Lively. Maybe you’ve read her blog or worked with her before, but if not, check her out. She’s one inspiring and spirited gal who has made it her job to help other people to create lives with intention. Last year, she helped me re-shape my business with intention and I’ve only seen my business grow since then!
It’s amazing to take one of her classes or one-on-one sessions and to feel amazing afterward, but it’s another thing to remember to live out that intention each and everyday. So to help her clients remember their intention, Jess collaborated with jewelry designer Acanthus Jewelry to create these gorgeous gold bracelets. In a beautiful hand-script, they say ‘live with intention’ and are as beautiful as they are functional.
I’ve been wearing mine ever since I got it and I have to say, it works. One quick look at it and I’m reminded of the things that are most important to me and how I can make my relationships, friendships and faith stronger, by approaching each one with that intention.
So whether you’ve worked with Jess or not, these bracelets are simple and pretty and a wonderful way to keep you on track with what you want to accomplish in any area of your life. I’m saying goodbye to those stress and anxiety-filled crazy days by reminding myself to live with intention everyday!
