This top from myWHYwear speaks volumes to me - I'm a big believer in mindfulness and the fact that a lot of people in the world don't actually listen very much anymore. Listening, in the sense of taking the time to hear what someone is saying, acknowledging it, and viewing it from his/her perspective before reacting and speaking. I love this tee for its play on words and especially for its meaning - it's a wonderful reminder to myself to continue the effort of being the best version of myself that I can be.

MyWHY was created to spread positivity and encouragement, which I think we can always use a little (or a lotta) bit of. Coming from the brand itself: What is your WHY? What compels you to get up and go to work each day? Everyone needs something - a cause, a reason, passion, motivation to keep them on track and that "thing" is your "why." So, what is your why?
