I'm a visual person.
And as such, I like visual reminders to give me a gentle nudge when I need it.
Over the weekend I bought this Alex and Ani bracelet. It's the Lotus Peace Petals bracelet that stands for resilience, illumination, and beauty.
Resiliency reminds me that Rome wasn't built in a day. There are going to be setbacks in goals that I have. I think about Get To It, and there are days when I want everything to come together RIGHT NOW!! I've been at this for over two years now, and there are some days where I feel like I'm making progress and then there are other days when I wonder whether or not I should just quit.
But then I think about the bigger picture and what I want to accomplish. I think about the entrepreneurs I follow that say it took them over seven years before things really started to take off. That's when I remind myself that even though I might take a couple of steps back, I'm still moving forward overall.
Illumination fits right into my business mantra, "Adding value through simple living and positive vibes."
Beauty is looking for snapshots each day that make us smile. It could be the hug of a child, the snuggle of a pet, drinking a cup of hot tea, a conversation with a loved one, the setting sun, or a special note. It’s a feeling of warmth and peace.
We all need something that gives us a positive spin when we feel as if things are out of our control. It helps gives us balance and puts us more in touch with the person we are striving to be.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
