I started wearing waist beads in July 2020. I purchased my first pair honestly just to support my sister and “check it out”. I didn’t know anything about waist beads then; now I know they hold a lot more meaning than that. My waist beads have become a special part of my LIFE journey, not just my weight-loss journey. Ericka created two strands just for me with a piece that I consider my healing stone while I’m in the fight of my life. If you can, I recommend getting the experience of being tied by the maker.
If you can't love yourself, then you don't know what love means. My waistbeads taught me just that...LOVE. To also value myself and that beauty is not what's around me, but beauty is me.
Since I’ve been wearing my waistbeads, I’ve gained so much more confidence in my body. I can see the results in my weight loss journey and not only that, my beads have become my new form of fashion. I love everything about my waistbeads! I can’t wait to add more to my collection!
What's Our Why?
I decided to start empowHER'd strands in May of 2020. I was off of work due to the surge of Coronavirus cases in my area, and the overall morale of the city was just low. I had plenty of time on my hands to reflect and zero in on my waistbeads journey and my feelings towards myself and my body throughout my journey. I noticed such a huge difference in my perception and the way that I carried myself, and I wanted to help other women and young girls harness that same empowHERment and tranquility within themselves, especially during these tough times we were facing.
My mission is not only body positivity, but body acceptance. I can't stress how important and satisfying it is to be comfortable and accepting of your body in its current state, without alteration. Self-love and acceptance is one of the most pure, raw and empowHERing forms of energy you will ever encounter, and there’s no age or weight limit on it. Waistbeads are not just for adults or thinner women. Tie your young daughters and give them the tools that you didn’t have growing up. It’s time to teach our daughters how to love and accept themselves wholeheartedly. Now is your chance to let go, to heal, and to embrace every ounce of magic within you.
