The purpose of my blog was never to promote brands or company’s, I just wanted to share my mental health journey in hopes of helping others with theirs, BUT there is one company that I absolutely love their mission and purpose and decided everyone needs to know about them!
Little Words Project is a company selling affordable and beautiful bracelets with different empowering words on them. Wearing a specific word that you connect with on your wrist can be the best daily reminder of how strong you are and how far you’ve come in your own personal journey.
I was first given a bracelet with the word strength on it during high school when I was struggling the most. My friend gifted it to me and told me that whenever I need a reminder of how strong I am all I need to do is look down and see this cute little shiny bracelet on my wrist. It always gave me a feeling of relief seeing something so simple as a bracelet with a powerful word on it.
I have had this bracelet for about 2 years now and wear it every single day. It reminds me of the hardships I’ve faced, and how far I’ve come. It reminds me of how strong I am to face many of these challenges and overcome them. And lastly, it reminds me of the tough times and how I never want to go back to that person I was at the beginning of my journey.
Since then I have purchased numerous bracelets! Many for my friends and special people in my life. I explain to them how it helped me and hopefully I could bring them the same happiness these simple bracelets bring me.
They expanded the company and now have many different words and options to choose from, some consisting of different words that support amazing charities!
I know I’m doing a terrible job of describing this company and their story, but I wanted to share with you how they’ve truly impacted my life. I never thought a little bracelet could be so powerful, but I was SO wrong!!
You can find these cute bracelets and many other different accessories supporting female empowerment, and anti-bullying charities here!
To give you a better idea of what they are all about… here is their “purpose.”
“The best way to tell my story and to answer your questions is, of course, to start at the beginning.
Growing up, I had a tough time. I was bullied to some degree every year since the 4th grade. People would say and do awful things both in person and online. I never really knew why I experienced it worse than some of my peers, but it happened all the same.
When I got to college I found that the cruelty continued, only this time it was a competitive kind of cruelty, the kind that unfortunately so often exists between women. But I didn’t let any of this keep me from seeking and establishing strong friendships with women – and I did that by joining a sorority.
Now, I know what you must be thinking. “Was this girl crazy? Join a sorority when she’d had constant trouble with other girls?!” In hindsight, it was the best decision I ever made. It was that very group of girls who taught me what true friendship was. As I dealt with negativity from others, my sisters were always there to carry me through. Of course, you must be wondering where the bracelets came into play. Now, that’s the best part.
I started making these bracelets back in high school to give myself positive reminders such as “Smile” and “Be Fearless.” When I came to college and joined my chapter, I wanted to share these positive words with each of my new friends so they too could always remember to have “Strength” or “Be Happy.”
I made the first batch of Little Words (formerly known as Warm Fuzzies) as a Sophomore and encouraged each person to wear their word for as long as she needed it, and then to pass it on to a sister who needed it more than she did. The idea was an instant hit. Girls started placing their orders almost immediately, and sisters were sharing their bracelets daily. Pretty soon, these little bracelets became iconic symbols of sisterhood for our college’s chapter.
After graduation, I thought about the impact these would have if brought to the masses. Wouldn’t it be amazing if women everywhere could experience this kind of connection to other women? If kindness was second nature and giving someone something you valued was expected?
And so, I decided to launch what is now known as Little Words Project® in hopes of inspiring a culture of kindness among women young and old.
So join us. Pick a word that means something to you and wait. Wait for someone to come along who could use that very reminder and experience the happiness giving away your bracelet will bring you.
One day, when you come across someone who really needs it, family, friend or a total stranger, you will know what to do. And it will be one of the best feelings you’ve ever felt.
Their company is truly inspiring to me, and I thought everyone needed to learn about them! So just take a minute out of your day and check out their adorable website! It’s definitely worth your time!
Lastly, I wanted to mention this post is (unfortunately) NOT sponsored by Little Words Project, but I did get permission from the Director of Operations to write a post about their brand. This is my honest opinion and
wanted needed to share it with you!
