Time always sneaks up on me no matter how much planning I do. When it comes to execution, I always feel I can squeeze more in than is realistic. Its tricky.
When I get frustrated, I think about how far I've already come and how far I want to go. I think about my support system and the people I am surrounded by. I'm supported by people I never imagined and sometimes I'm disheartened by the ones I really thought would.
But ultimately, sometimes it's the most distant people, the ones who didn't grow up the way you did, the ones who lived a completely different life than you, that are able to support you the most.
I am trying to take something standard like time, and support, and think about it in a less permanent way. Opening up to acceptance that not everything will fit into a specific time or space that we have defined, like an idea of support, or timeframes we have set bounds on, is relieving. For all of you following or supporting my journey, I'm thankful. I need you. We all need a support system and you never know what you're doing to build someone up or break them down.
I chose to feature Pandeia watches alongside my jewelry because I feel that it stands for more than most watch companies. Pandeia is so different. They take something as structured as time and give it freedom. They encourage exploration which enables self discovery.
Maybe, I like Pandeia because I feel a bond there. A bond in style but also in thought. It takes time and changes your perspetive on it. It makes a definitive element ambiguous. To me, not only do Pandeia watches look amazing and are a company I can stand behind (hello, handcrafted!) but they're easy to style and give a dressed up look some edge or fit right there with your hiking gear. Tell me thats not a win, win.
