"My life has been filled with terrible misfortune; most of which never happened." -Michel de Montaigne
As 2020 goes on, I've found myself stressing about things more than I have in a long time. I worry about my family, my friends, the community, the people I meet. I worry about scenarios and what - ifs, trying my best to do my duty as a father, a leader and a friend to 'stand prepared for anything!"
But as we get to the half way point of the year, I have to be honest - Michel was right. All these things I've been worrying about - they never happen. Not even close. I've spent so much time worrying about the dangers of tomorrow that I ignore what it's doing to me right now - the stress we keep bottled up is toxic, and we have to let it go.
All of our stories are unique, and many of you reading this right now may be going through a scenario where it feels like your deepest fears have been realized. As things get worse, it feels like all you can do is cry til there are no tears left - there's no other emotion left to give. The lowest of the low is a lonely place filled with anxiety as we grapple for anything left to hold on to.
My hope for this ZOX is a bit different than usual. First, I hope you remember what I've said all along- it's a hug for your wrist. In a case like this, that hug is one of those close embraces from me to you, the kind where it's okay to hold on, to tear up and to let it all out. In my life, there's been nothing that's comforted me more than hugs like that, and that's how I hope this ZOX is for you.
Secondly, I pray it gives you hope. If you're stressed, let it remind you to focus on what's best for you right now - preparing for what may come will only wear you down. If it's worse, remember that the sun always comes back again tomorrow - there's another opportunity for good news just beyond the horizon.
Love you guys. BIG hugs. ♥️

-We mill our super soft elastic using polyester made from recycled water bottles at Repreve®. Each ZOX takes roughly one 8oz water bottle out of our ecosystem and turns it into a little hug for your wrist - the perfect reminder to help you make it through your day.
-All ZOX include a laser engraved serial number on the tag for authenticity. You'll find a matching serial number engraved on the collectors card that's included.
-We believe kind words can change the world, which is why every elastic ZOX we make is reversible. On one side, you'll find beautiful art from artists all around the globe. On the other, you'll find a wonderful little written reminder. Wear the words on the inside when they're just for you, wear them on the outside when it's something you want to be reminded of each time you look down.
-Given the collectibility of ZOX, each piece we make is hand packed in a small, resealable bag made from recycled material. This bag keeps your favorite ZOX fresh when they're not being used and is helpful to keep them organized alongside their collector cards.
-Handmade with love
-Every order provides a year of clean water to someone in need through our partnership with the Thirst Project.
Our ZOXLOX Keychain converters are inspired by ingenuity from Zoxers in our own community. In our VIP group, members started posting pictures of clamps that turned their ZOX into keychains. Unfortunately, the clamps were 1-time use and would ruin their ZOX. So, we stepped in to create something amazing.
ZOXLOX are easy to use converters that will turn your ZOX Singles or Straps into the best keychains in the world. All you do is remove the screw, insert your ZOX wristband, and push the screw back in so the wristband is looped over it. Then, screw it back into place and just like that, your ZOX wristband is now a ZOX Keychain. And the best thing about it? You can easily swap your ZOX wristbands in and out to change your keychain any time you feel like it.
Every wristband made is a limited edition work of art for your wrists. ZOX are reversible with a design on one side and a positive message on the inside. Every ZOX is individually laser cut with a serial number to ensure authenticity.
