Wood Watches For Men

Beautiful and stunning… those are the words that popped into my head when I opened the box. Truly breathtaking, and honestly I usually don’t get this excited over something unless it’s some running or fitness gadget. But Jord took my breath away with their wooden watches. .

If you’ve never heard of Jord before, they are known for their 100% natural, hand-finished authentic wood watches. Jord watches come in various styles and colors. From battery to hand wound, there is truly something for everyone. And if you are looking for an awesome way to present and store your watch, Jord does that too. Can you imagine giving this to someone as a gift?

The presentation alone in my opinion is a gift. But the beautiful watch inside will definitely bring smiles.

The Truth Is I Usually Don't Fit

The truth is... I'm not like everyone else... I'm not. I never have been, and I never will be. And sometimes that leaves me a little sheltered, sometimes broken, because I tend to take things a little too personal and serious. This week it was pinterest. Yep, pinterest. Pinterest had me in tears. Why?

Because my pins were rejected by some people I have never met and never will meet. In the blogger community there are these things called share groups. Because really ya'll, what's the point of a post if no one ever sees it? So these share groups help share each others' posts.

I created a pin that I was proud of. Yep, it might have been my big ole smiling face with some carefully positioned words for the title of my post, but it was mine. And I liked it enough to put it out there for the world to see. And (insert pause for drama) the post was rejected by the share board. And I cried like a baby. It's silly now that I think of it. It really is. It's a difference of opinion, and they didn't like mine. I was told not to give up and keep trying.

For some reason that hit a nerve with me..... because... deep down I don't want to be like everyone else. I don't want the perfectly positioned pin, the 200000 pictures until I get the perfect lighting.... no... I want to be me... the hot mess Momma who is doing the best she can to get after her dreams.

I exercise among chewed up dog toys, trucks and cars, balls, and Lil Man's power tools scattered about. My life is not perfect, and I don't need or want my blog, instagram, twitter, facebook or pinterest to be any different than who I am. I want to be true to myself, and to you.

So, I am going to take that advice to not give up and keep trying, but instead of trying to be like everyone else to fit in. I'm going to be me.
