My goodness, another amazing week of releases. I'm so excited you all loved this one as much as I did. I really think there's tremendous strength in the power of kind words, especially as we go into Mental Health Awareness Month here in the next few days.
If you haven't had a chance to get them yet, I'd act quick - these beautiful designs are selling out very fast, just like last week's release!
Now let's get on to the topic of today: 5 more stunning ZOX are getting retired this Tuesdayif they don't sell out before then!
There's some really good ones I don't want you to miss out on too, so let's jump right in!
This design fits in so perfectly with this past week's release, doesn't it? In today's day and age, it's easier than ever to feel overwhelmed. We're constantly bombarded with images of other people's success and accomplishments, making it all too easy to compare ourselves and feel like we're falling behind.
But the truth is, the only person we should ever really be competing with is ourselves.
Your only competition is yesterday's you.
That's what I wrote on the back of the card for this design. I absolutely love this sentiment, and I think it's something we all need to remind ourselves of, especially when it comes to our mental health.
As we get older, we start to realize that life is not about striving for perfection or trying to outdo others. It's about recognizing our own unique journey and focusing on making small, meaningful improvements in our lives, day by day - acknowledging our progress and celebrating our victories, no matter how big or small they may be.
Lao Tzu says this even better than I can:
"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."
Isn't that beautiful? It's a reminder that our potential is limitless when we stop comparing ourselves to others and start focusing on our own growth.
So if you find yourself getting caught up in the comparison trap, I hope you'll take a moment to grab this design and join me in continuing to work on being a better version of yourself than you were yesterday.
There's a lot of amazing, kind hearted reviews of this design. Here's a few of my favorites:
This past year has been all about transformation. I hit a milestone in life & have really been focusing on becoming the best possible version of myself. Great daily reminder. And excellent quality/ fit as always.

Another amazing design that just works so well with this week's' release. I love this reminder so much! In reading the story Landri originally wrote for this one, I've gotta say - it reflects the feelings from when I made this design perfectly.
Here it is:
If you knew that everything would work out, would you stop worrying about things? Had I been asked this question, I wish I could say yes, but I’d probably still worry. What if I messed something up that changed the way things would work out? That’s just anxiety and fear talking. But I find it hard to control those things, and so do a lot of people.
It’s important to talk about mental health. For some reason, it was a taboo subject for years, yet it affects everyone. Anxiety is a beast, a sneaky one that hides in the dark and pounces when we least expect it. However, just because anxiety is a beast, that does not make you one for suffering from it. Anxiety can start as a seedling and grow into a towering stalk for some people and remain a fly on the wall for others. Whether people admit it or not, we’re all prey to some form of worry, but it’s not something to be hush-hush about.
It’s important to talk about things that matter to us, even if they don’t always affect us. It’s okay to not always be happy; it’s okay to be angry and sad; it’s okay to get stressed. But, it’s also good to acknowledge that whatever we’re dealing with will eventually fade. Everything will be okay. Whether the situation you’re in turns out to be the best thing ever or the worst, you will be okay when all is said and done. Either way, you will make it through. You’ve fought to get here, and you’ve made it; nothing can stop you now.
My hope for this beautiful Strap is that you know you’re not alone in your struggles. It’s hard to remember when life goes sideways, but things will pan out, and you will be okay.
So many great reviews of this one:
The only difficulty I ever have is choosing!!! Love everything about these wristbands, the detail and quality is excellent, so easy to wear.
Such a calming reminder. Just an additional reminder to not worry. Everything will work out, or it won't. Either way, I'll be okay. Great fit/ quality as always.
In life, we often find ourselves stuck in the "what ifs" and the "maybes" that keep us from trying, don't we?
I am so, so guilty of this.
We hesitate, afraid of failure, rejection, or simply the unknown. But what if, instead of being held back by these fears, we chose to ask ourselves a simple question: Why not?
This message is a powerful call to action, urging us to step out of our comfort zones and embrace the possibilities that lie ahead. It's about shifting our mindset from one of doubt and hesitation to one of confidence and determination.
And that shift is a lot bigger than you might first think - it can change the trajectory of the rest of your life!
Maya Angelou wrote something beautiful about this:
"Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it."
When we find the courage to ask 'Why not?' and take the leap, we're not only pursuing our passions, but also learning to appreciate our own worth. We're embracing the idea that we are deserving of success, happiness, and fulfillment, and that it's within our power to achieve it.
That understanding is so, so powerful.
So next time you find yourself doubting your potential or hesitating to take a chance, I hope you'll turn to this design and its message. You deserve it!
This review made me smile:
I love finding ZOX bracelets that truly speak to me. I’ve been at a jumping off point for a career I truly want to pursue and this bracelet encompasses that passion fully. Thanks ZOX for always being a handy reminder.
Que Sera, Sera.
Three simple words, yet they hold so much power and wisdom. This timeless phrase, which means "Whatever will be, will be," has been a mantra for countless people throughout history, serving as a reminder to let go of our worries and embrace the beauty of life's uncertainties.
Isn't that an amazing feeling? That freedom to just let go?
Sometimes, we become so consumed by our need for control that we forget the magic of just being present and accepting the journey. I have to be honest - this is something I struggle with a lot.
But Que Sera, Sera is an invitation to trust the process, to find peace in the unknown, and to believe that, in the end, everything will work out exactly as it's meant to.
John Lennon reflected on this same sentiment:
"Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end."
This quote perfectly captures the essence of Que Sera, Sera. Life is full of twists and turns, ups and downs, and definitely the unexpected. But while it can be difficult to let go of our desire for control, there's a sense of relief and liberation that comes from accepting that we can't predict or manage every aspect of our lives.
So the next time you find yourself stressing over what tomorrow holds or trying to micromanage every detail of your life, I hope you'll use this little hug for your wrist to get yourself back on track. Embrace the uncertainty, let go of the reins, and trust that, in the end, everything will be okay.
Because it will be.
There are so many great reviews of this one too! Here's a few of my favorites:
Admittedly it is hard to choose which side to wear facing out as they’re both so nice and I want to show them off
Whatever will be, will be. Such a calming/ trusting saying, when everything feels up in the air. The universe has your back. I love it! Great fit/ quality as always.
This was a gift for my Mom. She taught me this song as a little girl and she still sings it today. I'm teaching her about positive affirmations and ZOX makes easy.
Throughout history, the concept of love has always held a special place in our hearts and minds. It's a powerful force that transcends boundaries, and its influence can be found all throughout human existence.
In the Bible, Romans 12:10 is a simple verse that has so much to unpack on this subject:
"Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves."
This verse perfectly captures the essence of selflessness and devotion that forms the foundation of love. It teaches us to prioritize the well-being of others and to put their needs before our own – a message that is definitely as relevant today as it was when it was first written.
In a world that often feels chaotic and uncertain, it's more important than ever to remember the power of love to heal and bring people together. Love can break down barriers, mend broken relationships, and create a sense of unity that defies even the greatest challenges.
This design, inspired by the timeless message of Romans 12:10, serves as a beautiful reminder of that transformative power. It invites us to embrace love in all its forms, and to practice it in our daily lives.
Because when we choose to focus on love and let it guide our actions, we discover the true depth of our capacity for compassion, empathy, and connection.
