It’s the start of a new year and with it comes the hoard of new year resolutions. Some will make a decision to eat healthier, exercise more, be kinder, more patient, spend less. The most popular New Year’s resolution is “new year + new me.” Some may achieve their goals, other will fall flat within the first month or two. Whatever your resolution we wish you the best of luck in its achievement and in the spirit of the season, we’d like to present to you 5 Ways Jewelry Can Change Your Life.
- Change Your Look
There are many people in this world that fall into a rut. Whether it’s a certain daily habit, the type of people they talk to or the clothes they chose everyday. It’s not necessarily a bad thing and it is to no fault of their own. Sometimes it takes a great effort to get yourself out of a rut, but once you identify it, it becomes a lot easier. Jewelry is one of the simplest ways to change your look. With just a few pieces you can feel like a completely new or different person. Want to really mix things up? Try a different look every couple days or try something you've never thought you would. Try on different styles, attitudes, personalities - you’ll never be bored.
- Escape the Comfort Zone
Here’s that rut again. Part of being stuck in that rut is that you get stuck in the routine and familiarity of things. Change is scary to a lot of people and sometimes yes, it is scary and other times, it can be exhilarating and the best thing to have ever happened to you. As much as we like comfort and familiarity, humans need variety in their lives to be happy. Make a decision to take steps to get out of that comfort zone. Buy that ring that you like but is normally too large for your normal taste. Regardless of your inhibitions and fear of change, it is possible to get out of your comfort zone on a small scale.
- Improve Self-esteem
Self-esteem is essential to daily life. The way you think of yourself affects your attitude and happiness. Improving your confidence in yourself, will improve your self-esteem and in return, improve your happiness. Yes, jewelry is one way to do just that. It can improve your outlook on yourself or even the world. It allows you to do what you want and be who you want to be. You don’t have to rely on the opinions of others. And as much as we write about current trends, you absolutely don’t have to follow them. Be independent. Be spontaneous. Be confident. Wear those outrageous earrings that make you feel like a goddess, because that is all that counts. How YOU feel about YOU.
- Express Individuality
A very wise man once wrote, “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” That man was Dr. Seuss, in case you didn’t know and he was 100% right. You are the only you and you should express that everyday. Jewelry allows you to express yourself in ways that other things can’t. Show off your style and your attitude. Embrace your individuality and show it to the world. Shout it to the world. There is only one you and how will people know you if you don’t show them? Take pride in what makes you different, because it makes you, you. Be you. 100% you and don’t be ashamed or afraid of that. Yes, that belt CAN go with everything.
- Bond With Others
Jewelry and accessories can be great conversation starters, especially when they are unique and show your personality. Perhaps it’s an heirloom from your great-grandmother or a fantastic find at the second-hand store. Whatever it’s story, it has one and so do you. Jewelry can be an opener into those stories and allows you to connect with others. Jewelry has the power to be magnetizing, attracting other to you. Maybe it caught their eye, or perhaps they were just drawn to your style or attitude. It can bond you with others in other ways as well. There is a reason they make BFF charm bracelets, necklaces that fit together for lovers and rings for mom, jewelry can connect emotions. Who does your jewelry bond you with? New or old, those connections are important.
The changes in your life because of jewelry may be subtle or they may be grand, but they are there. You can be conscious of them and MAKE them happen or they may be so subtle you hardly notice at all. Jewelry can connect memories and emotions. It can transform any outfit into a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. It can make you feel like the goddess you are and like you have the ability to rock the world. Bored with your look? Mix things up and adapt a new style or even just one piece to shake things up. Be confident, however you can achieve that. Happy New Year!
