Live Lokai

I was recently gifted a Lokai bracelet from a guy named Steve. Steve happens to be the founder of a company that makes these bracelets that have a really cool message. The idea of the bracelets? Remaining balanced and humble, something I think is uber important. Do I love it? Yes, I have been wearing it non-stop since I got it a few days ago and not just because it looks pretty cute but because it represents something so refreshing.

The story of the Lokai bracelet began in founder, Steven Izen 's Freshman year of college, on a beach with his family and friends, Steven thought about how fortunate he was to be there. Just a few days earlier he had learned the difficult news that his grandfather, lovingly known to him as “Papa,” had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.The experience of such joy and sadness so close together got him to thinking: life is circular, and throughout your highest highs and lowest lows, it’s important to always remain balanced. The lokai bracelet is Steven’s way of sharing that message with the world - a constant, wearable reminder to lead a balanced life, staying humble through the highs and hopeful through the lows.

When you receive this bracelet, there is a "Mad Lib" of sorts about paying it forward. It's an encouraging addition to an already encouraging message. I instagrammed my message to share with my friends and family. When my husband threw me a surprise birthday party, I felt so loved and appreciated. My good friend Alicia turns 30 today (Happy Birthday Alicia!) and we are going to Hibachi like there is no tomorrow to celebrate her milestone birthday. Someday, perhaps Alicia will plan something special for someone else, paying it forward... it's all about keeping the love flowing and moving forward. I love the message so much that I am sharing it with you obviously.

Steve has offered to bestow this same gift on someone who wants to be reminded to find their balance by wearing a Lokai bracelet ($18 value). Do you want to win a Lokai bracelet for yourself?
