This weekend they invited me over for dinner and the minute that I arrived, they surprised with balloons and singing "happy birthday". Usually I am terrified by balloons but these made my heart smile; so of course I had to take a photo with them while practicing an asana....
Lokai bracelets? Apparently, I have been living under a rock and didn't know much about them. I have seen photos of their bracelets online but I didn't really know their backstory...thank God for google:
Sometimes you’re on top of the world. Stay humble.
The white bead carries water from Mount Everest, the highest point on earth.
Sometimes you’ve hit a low. Stay hopeful.
The black bead holds mud from The Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth.
Finding your balance
Life’s a journey. Lokai exists to help you find balance through the highs and lows
Not only did they get me two of these bracelets...they gifted me two which hold a special meaning for me.
Lokai partnered with The Nature Conservancy in 2017 to support their work restoring balance to the environments. Each Green Lokai purchased allows The Conservancy to plant one tree via the Plant a Billion Trees program! If you guys have been following me on social media; you know how important trees are to me. Shoot, when I had to recite a poem in JHS; I chose "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer and I have a tree in my neighborhood that I must visit everyday and rest my hand on her.
When I read the cards that were included with the bracelets, I could not help but get emotional. It is rare to have people in your life that fully understand and support you but I have been blessed with this incredible support system that "gets" me.
