Peace and Gratitude started out as a feeling that I wanted to have all of the time. Since I am human, I don’t always feel that way. Go figure! After I had our second child, I had a very difficult time getting back on my feet emotionally. Even though I wasn’t officially diagnosed, I’m pretty sure I had postpartum depression. All throughout my life, I tried to see things on the bright side, but never really thought much about purposefully being grateful. It wasn’t until this trying experience that I immersed myself in learning about emotional and mental wellness, and how to get better, not only for myself, but for my family. Thankfully, I was able to work through my difficulties, and everyday I choose to find whatever little peace I can, and try to remember to be grateful for all I have.
Of course, this isn’t always easy. It’s an ongoing exercise. I found that I needed reminders to get back to that good place. One way was having post-it notes everywhere with uplifting sayings as my reminders. It helped, but I had major messes everywhere! Not a good way to find my peace, right? I also write in a gratitude journal almost everyday to really be present in my day to day, and not let the stress of life bury me. Being active is also another way to clear the mind and find some peace.
Another way, a more fun way, is by having certain pieces of jewelry that would help me get back to that place of feeling peace, and the gratitude for everyone and everything in it. Every time I looked at the jewelry, I would smile and remember that “I’m alright!”.
So, that is how our store Peace and Gratitude had it’s beginning. I want to help others find their peace, joy, gratitude, and if possible a little bit of sanity in this crazy world of ours.
With our pieces, I want people to feel happy to wear the jewelry, and also feel really good about giving them to others. We all come from different walks of life, but one thing is the same. We all want to feel good. We want to feel like we belong. We also want to make others feel just as good and cared for. That is what I hope our store, Peace and Gratitude, can help in achieving.
Yeah, we sell jewelry, but it’s more than that. We want to help you get and keep those groovy feelings. Whether it’s by one of the inspiring sayings, helping you find that awesome unique gift for a loved one, or just by helping you look G-O-O-D! Better yet, our jewelry is high quality and doesn’t break the bank. Unique and custom designs available, jewelry of high quality that doesn’t tarnish, and affordable prices? I love that combination! Hope you do, too!
We also plan to offer other kinds of useful items (i.e. feel good to use items) that will help in your day to day. Feeling good isn’t only about looking good, but feeling like you are doing right by the items we use everyday.
Last but definitely not least, please visit our blog (on this site) and our FaceBook group, Daily Peace and Gratitude (https://www.facebook.com/groups/dailypeaceandgratitudegroup/).
