I have gone through hell and back the past few years. I lost my dad, my brother, and my uncle within months of each other. I went through a terrible broken engagement, my mom and grandmother have both been declining in health at the same time, and on top of all that, I worked throughout the height of the coronavirus spread in a hospital. Last year itself was very stressful for me. But I persevered. I continue to persevere. I came across the ZOX site and scrolled through the different straps and the meaning behind them. This one definitely fits me because in spite of everything that has happened in my life the past five years, my story isn't finished. I'm still writing it. I showed a picture of the strap to one of my best friends. She gave me my first inspirational message bracelet around the time it felt like the weight of the world was too much. I felt this was something she would want to look at and find something special for her three adult daughters. She ended up buying four of the "Story" bracelet for her and her girls. Our lives are stories. No matter how you look at it, every stage in our lives represents chapters. My forty-eight years on this earth has been good, bad, happy, sad, exciting and heartbreaking. I expect the same before my time comes to an end. Such is the way of life. But it's my continuing story.
