It’s easy to sink into my own fears and problems when they are right in my face. HUGE NUMBER 1 PROBLEMO: I need a new place to move my business. NOW! And it’s not just finding a location, but a location that we can fit 20 years of beads in AND more importantly, that we can afford. It’s been a source of major worry for over a year, and that’s intensified with our move-out date coming so soon.
And with all of the chaos going around in the world, and hurricanes rushing past us with unbelievable force and potential destruction, it’s become great reminders to myself that things can change to crap so quickly, not to fall so often into the trap of taking things for granted, and to find my safety and calm inside of ME.
I’ve been wearing my larimar and blue lace agate bracelets EVERY DAY for 3 months… They have such a peaceful energy and soothing calmness that reminds me of floating in ocean, watching clouds move past in the sky. That I am safe and sound, and regardless of my surroundings and crazy thoughts – I can find some measure of peace.
I can’t tell anyone how to deal with stress and worry effectively .. I can barely do that for myself on some days! But, I can say that I load up with my gemstones, and remind myself that I am powerful and capable and that my adornment is just a reflection of the beauty that is inside of me.
Good luck!! Jamie
