The symbol of an arrow is a powerful one. It represents many concepts including direction, force, protection and even love (think cupid’s arrow).
I recently heard a sermon about “pointing arrows in the right direction.” The sentiment was in reference to raising children, but the more I thought about it, the application can be much broader – How do we help point our friends, fellow girlbosses, or our partner’s arrows in the right direction?
Tough one, right? I mean, how do we even know the direction they want to be going in?
With my closest confidants, I certainly know their goals and what they are passionately striving for each day. I take pride in intentionally encouraging and providing uplifting support for those around me, especially for those in my inner circle. For me, this is only possible if I’m at my best. When I’m feeling stressed, overwhelmed or anxious, it is difficult for me to effectively listen to anyone, let alone advise. However, when I’m tuned in to my own faith, and tuned in with those I love, it’s almost as if the support comes as naturally as breathing. This is where I want to be each day.
When I found this Stella & Dot necklace, I knew I had to have it. This arrow concept has been on my mind since hearing the above-reference sermon and I knew wearing this would be a constant reminder of the love and support that I must bestow on my people – something small I can do to help point their arrows in the right direction.
And plus, the necklace is simply classy, dainty and adorable – perfect for layering!
