Perhaps one of the biggest areas of awareness motherhood has brought in my life is how precious time is and how quickly it goes by. Now more than ever, I so desperately want to live each and every moment to the fullest and not taking any minute for granted.
When JORD reached out to me about their watches, I was immediately impressed with the quality of their products. As I was reading about them more, this quote made me pause:
The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.JORD Watches
In light of this perspective, I wanted to bring you a few practical ways to really make that time count (before I get in to the exciting giveaway at the bottom of this post!):
1. Put down the phone.
We are hyper connected all across the globe with internet and social media. Yet we seem to be more restless, discontented, and stressed than ever. Try putting away the phone and just soak up the little details around you. Such as the way the evening sunlight dances through the kitchen curtains, the faint sounds of your kids playing in the backyard, the gentle pressure of your spouse’s hand in yours.
2. Learn to say no.
Embracing time isn’t about trying to fit as much as you can in a day. It’s about enjoying each moment your day brings you. Mindfully pick the best “yes” on how you fill your time and try out living life at a slower pace. Quality vs. quantity definitely applies when it comes to living well in the present.
3. Stop waiting for the next “thing”.
I spent much of my early twenties wasting away time. Wishing I was done with college, wishing for the dream job, wishing for a husband… If I let it, this type of thinking could have gone on and on. If you spend all of your time wishing for the next season to come, you’ll miss every blessing and lesson your current season has for you.
This beautiful watch from Jord is such a sweet reminder to be purposeful and intentional with each and every moment.
Why do Jord watches stand out?
Most of the watch backplates can be engraved which adds a unique, personal touch. They are sized specifically to the recipient and most watches can be customized further if you want to mix and match woods/finishes!
I’m wearing a timepiece from the new Cora Polaris series. It’s a gorgeous juxtaposition of rustic Koa wood and hand polished rose gold metal. I especially love the feminine and dainty Swarovski crystals shaped like the Little Dipper in the watch face. They have so many other beautiful women’s watch options to pick from!
And also, the JORD mens watches are so sharp– I’ve got my eye on the dark sandalwood one for darling husband.
Bottom line: the craftsmanship, quality, and style of these watches truly sets them apart from other timepieces.
