What would you do if you knew you could change the world? Many of us have loads of ideas that you want to do in your life. But where to start?
No matter where you are in your life, we live in a time where so many things are possible. We can communicate within seconds, travel more freely, experience a place without being there, the list goes on. But with so many possibilities, you need to choose what to do with your time wisely. Beginning my life journey post-college, one of my biggest fears is not fulfilling my potential, not making a difference in the world and not doing what I truly dreamed of. Sound familiar?
All of us want to change the world and leave our mark in some way for the better.
What if I told you that can start with the jewelry you wear? Simply wearing a piece of jewelry that you love, all while having more time to do the things you love and knowing you're making a difference? Here are three ways how you can help change the world for the better by wearing [the right] jewelry:
1) Wear quality jewelry that is your own style.
What you wear can be used as a way to say something about you and can serve as a reminder to what you're all about. Wearing a piece of jewelry that reflects your style and your message can serve as a unique message of who you are and what your affirmations and dreams are.
For example, my jewelry is crafted based on the idea of living your highest quality and most positive life possible. When I wear a piece of mine, it serves as a reminder to myself that I should live life to its fullest everyday and strive to live my purpose. And not to mention, have fun!
As the saying goes, "Style isn't about what you wear, it's how you live". When you're wearing something that makes you feel the best "you" possible, that energy will motivate you to do the things you've always wanted to do - and in turn, can change the world for the better. You deserve to wear jewelry with as good quality as who you are - treat yourself!
2) Wear jewelry by a brand that gives back.
What we wear reflects what we stand for and is a piece of who we are. It is a symbol of our character and what we strive to fulfill in this world. It is great to see the jewelry brands are doing this today: The Rachel Andrea Collection, Alex and Ani, Raven + Lily, Article22, and many more.
When you buy a piece of jewelry by a brand that's transparent of what they're doing with your hard-earned dollars, you can feel good and know that money is being put to great use! For example, I've started working with my first non-profit so far, Bella Soul, and have created jewelry for the organization where those profits go to its scholarships for those battling a chronic illness or disease in college. One top of encouraging a positive lifestyle, jewelry made by The Rachel Andrea Collection also gives back and and encourages those to help others in these ways.

3) Wear jewelry with pure materials from the Earth.
Wearing jewelry from the Earth we walk on helps in so many ways! First, it is environmentally friendly to wear this type of jewelry. It takes much less energy and processing to craft semi-precious stones and gemstones than, say, plastic beads. Highly synthetic stones are processed in a lab, and have additives in the pieces, which compounds to the resource consumption. When you wear jewelry sourced directly from the Earth, it simply gets shaped, polished, and directly to the jeweler.
You also get to truly see Earth's beauty in these beads. Each stone has its own meaning that can symbolize something important in the beholder's eyes. For example, rose quartz symbolizes unconditional love. Wearing this type of stone serves as a reminder to the wearer to show this type of love or to symbolize the importance of unconditional love.
Last, since each stone is so unique you know you are getting a one-of-a-kind piece. It is truly as unique as you are!
What I'm trying to say is...
You can change the world in so many ways. All you need to do is to think outside the box and find what you're most passionate about. If you don't know where to start, you can begin by simply wearing the right type of jewelry.
Oh, and when you're out there helping the world, don't forget to do it with a smile. It's one of the simplest ways to change the world and amazing what a difference it can make to one's day. ;)
