Seeking harmony amongst all the complicated aspects of life is a universal desire that we all seem to strive for. We sat down with Marcia to try and gain some insight as to how this mom, wife, business owner & philanthropist maintains balance in her own life. “It’s about continuing to move forward,” she explains.
“Right now, I think Balance is one of the hottest concepts we have.” Marcia explains, “It’s such an easy piece to wear and every person I have ever met will tell you that they are personally striving for balance. It resonates with a lot of people.”
“For me, it’s not so much about balancing your time. It’s about balancing your energy and making sure that you are giving appropriate energy to the different parts of your life. Whether it’s your kids, your husband, work, and of course yourself – it’s about figuring out where your focus needs to be and when, that’s what it’s more about to me.”
Always sounding easier said than done, Marcia elaborates on how she does it. “You have to keep doing things that allow the energy to flow both ways. That’s why it’s so important to give back. When you’re involved with non-profits and actually go out into your community, you’re getting so much energy in return that it’s like you have this storage bank of goodness. When you have that, you’re able to give that energy back to the people in your life who need it. That includes yourself.”
“I’m not gonna lie, I have amazing support in my life. We have amazing people that support what we’re doing and trying to do, including our Dogeared family, but it’s all about doing what feels right. I think if it feels right and it’s forward motion, it doesn’t always have to BE right.”
Personal favorites from the collection? “The balance tube bracelet: it’s so easy to put on with the magnet, and it looks amazing. It gets on so fast that it actually makes your life easier! I also wear the balance bar earrings all the time. This collection really speaks to the minimalist trend we’re seeing on women right now. I think a good strategy for fashion and life is just, ‘Keep things real, pretty, easy, and balanced.'”
