Introducing the "In Your Element" Series– We’re kicking off a series featuring some of our favorite relatable ladies (think ABLE staff, content creators, artists, you name it!). Stay tuned for honest chats about their everyday lives, how things are going lately, and all the good and bad in between.
Meet Annalise – ABLE Jewelry Designer in Nashville, TN.
When do you feel most in your element?
I feel most in my element when I’m surrounded by loved ones, traveling, or experiencing something new and exciting.
What are some things you’re into lately or inspired by?
How are you doing? No really, how are you doing?
I’ve been better, but I know I’m not alone in this feeling. Overall, I feel like this season could be described by high highs and low lows. There are moments where I am overwhelmed with immense gratitude for the little things in life, and there are moments where I feel the tangible heaviness of everything happening in the world.
I have specifically been taking time to educate myself. I have had hard conversations with family and friends, and ultimately, I have come to hard realizations about the magnitude of my own privilege and prejudices. It is my responsibility to use these discoveries as fuel to do better. The beautiful thing is that at this point in time, education and research are at our fingertips. We have no excuses to stop growing and learning.
