One of the main tenets of HeartWear Jewelry is our promotion of individuality. As a means of encouraging individuality, we offer handmade custom creations to women who dare to be different. As a brand, we are all about building up women to truly be their best selves. It is impossible to be your best self when you're trying to be someone else, right?
So what does it mean to "be your best self"? To me, it means to know yourself, to be authentic, and to not be swayed by someone else's lack of approval.
We talked a few weeks ago about self-care and the importance of knowing yourself -- your likes, dislikes, etc. It's as true today as it was then! Also, remember that just as our likes and dislikes change over time, so do we! Progress is always the goal and it's a moving target. Don't be afraid to venture out into new interests every now and then.
To me, being authentic means to be an original. Honestly, the only thing we can ever truly be is ourselves! Women who are members of the HeartWear Jewelry family understand the value in dancing to the beat of their own drums and running their own races. That's what attracts them to the brand. We're not trying to be something we're not, and we don't encourage anyone else to do that either.
How do you know when you've reached the point of being your authentic self? Answer: When you don't seek validation from others who may see things differently from you. So what if "they" don't like the same music as you? So what if "they" don't like the same movies you like? If you spend your life trying to match everything with everyone, you'll never find yourself in the process.
At HeartWear Jewelry, we design custom creations so that when you're wearing that wrap bracelet or that one-of-a-kind necklace, you can look down at your handmade piece and know that it was made just for you! It wasn't mass-produced. Instead, it was handled with care and designed with you in mind. When you wear our handcrafted earrings, that's just a small reminder of how important you are. You are significant!
How have you felt wearing your creations from HeartWear Jewelry? What else do you do to remind yourself how special you are?
We'd love to hear from you!
