I was 14 when my mother was diagnosed with end stage liver disease and we became aware that she needed a liver transplant to survive . Fortunately with a few bumps and bruises she received her transplant within a year and a half but during that time , I became ill and started my journey with mental illness.

During my freshman year of college, I was raped and then I ended up in an abusive relationship that lasted three years and took strategic planning to leave and that was 15 years ago. 

Because of my history, I’ve now developed PTSD, which I’m currently trying to heal from along with managing the rest of my medical conditions: depression, anxiety, panic attacks , ADD and chronic insomnia. But I keep on trucking.

I’ve learned even when you think you can’t, you can.

I paid off ALL my credit cards!!!! Four of them! Everyone told me I should declare bankruptcy.I didn’t want to do that. I wanted to take responsibility for my actions. I had gotten into debt and I wanted to get out f it. I went to a credit counseling service and they helped me work out a budget. I worked two jobs for more than three years but I paid off every penny!!! Then I paid off my car four months early! I feel lighter than I have felt in fifteen years! I have a XIZOZU on ny keychain to always remind me of how strong and willful I can be when I want to. I am still working a second job (not as many hours as before) but ALL of the money from that job is going to a house down-payment savings account!!! I expect to buy my own home, by myself before my 36th birthday! I’ll get the Bought My Own Home medal when I do! Wish me luck!

The Tattoo and The Art of Support.

So many of my days are made – by you. Today is one of them

A month or so ago a customer ordered a XIZOZU™ pendant and with the order came a note with this request:

I have been looking for many months for some type of personal symbol or sigil as a unique tattoo that would represent my struggles without being too mainstream, and without others having to know what it truly means. This would be the perfect beautiful tattoo to have on my arm…What you have created here is amazing. May I have your blessing?

Of course I said yes, without hesitation and sent her a larger reference image to make th artist’s work easier.

This photo arrived in my inbox this morning with another heartwarming note that filled both my heart and eyes.

Tattoo designs that let provide comfort and strength

This, this is what XIZOZU is…a beautiful source of both comfort and strength.

For you.

And for me.

What would your XIZOZU tattoo say? Of course you can express anything, but click to see the ones we’ve made so far:

XIZOZU Surprises Area Student Activists

 

March 24, 2018 – Rutland, Vt, area students speak at the March for Our Lives Rally at Main Street Park in Rutland.

March for Our Lives Student Organizers Rutland Vermont Student Activists

When my plans to march in Washington DC were given the kibosh,  I attended the March for Our Lives rally at Main Street Park in Rutland.

After listening to the student organizers’ thoughtful and empowering speeches, I was move to honor them for their willingness to stand up and do the necessary work to shape the future. So when I got back to the studio, I gave them all medals.

These students didn’t just show up. They did the hard and likely thankless tasks involved in coordinating such an impactful event. They researched and wrote speeches and songs. They motivated others.

There are two XIZOZU medals related to protests, one for marching in one, another for organizing one. These students are receiving the latter.

I decided on keychains instead of chokers since these students do in fact hold the keys to all of our futures. And after what I saw at the rally, I’m pretty comfortable knowing that.

The worst part was feeling like it was my fault. Even the questions from my family made me feel like somehow I asked for my brother’s friend to rape me. It’s taken all of the past eleven years to let go of the guilt. My XIZOZU is how I give myself a hug and say f*ck you to people who want to blame me.

I was sexually assaulted by my boss my first week at the job. I didn’t tell anyone because I really needed that job and I was afraid he would fire me. (I’m a single parent)  That was five years ago and I’ve been promoted three times so that we’re at the same management level now. Thankfully we work in different buildings and I don’t have to seem him. I wear my XIZOZU as my reminder that no one else will ever have power over me and that I control my life.
