Recently, my family and I visited a remote island off the coast of Belize. While traveling by boat, we were surrounded by beautiful water, sunny blue skies, and were enjoying the barefoot life. Once we spotted the island, it looked like something out of a movie. I couldn’t get over how everything was so gorgeous, yet untouched by man and so remote! It looked like one of those postcards you see at gift shops.
After exploring the island and having a delicious lunch, I found myself on a beach chair under a palm tree. We began speaking with the locals, who explained that the island moves location and sometimes is completely underwater and cannot be seen. It even changes shapes and locations because of the wind and tide. The palm trees also bend and are reshaped by the weather. This island was becoming more and more interesting by the minute.
With the serenity of the island and waves, I found myself dozing off. When I opened my eyes, I saw something absolutely amazing. It was the yellow-orange sun beaming through the palm trees in a way where it looked heavenly. I thought I was dreaming at first. I must have stared at this for 20 minutes. I knew I had to show Hailey so she could bring it to the drawing board. When she came to see this, she also noted the two palm trees that were bent due to the wind. “Sway your Own Way!” Hailey said, “That’s it.”
Swaying your own way is being your own person, being yourself, and being unique. It is about doing your own thing and not following the crowd. People are like palm trees, everyone is shaped differently, and no two are the same. Sometimes the weather “bends” us just as the palms but it makes us stronger and who we are. Never be afraid to show who you really are because that is where you will shine the most! You can now find the Sway Your Own Way black tank and a peach vneck in our Fi-Fi collection.
