2020, THE YEAR OF PERFECT VISION

2020, THE YEAR OF PERFECT VISION

Instead of making resolutions for the new year, I create one personal goal that revolves around one word. Last year's word of the year was "creation". I chose "creation" to challenge myself in various areas surrounding design, collaboration and creating opportunities. I gave myself permission to spend the year practicing spontaneity while taking bigger risks. 
.
I will admit, it was emotionally taxing to accomplish all I did, but when the year ended, I felt like I had given my word all I had during the time I committed. I reemerged in 2020 feeling at peace, filled with joy, gratitude, and relief I made it to a new decade with a clean slate. 
.
I knew my next word would appear organically, so I patiently waited until one felt right. In the interim, I became aware of a major shift, like the universe was saying "yes" to my silent requests, the trust I had in my path immediately rewarded. By devoting myself to authentic "creation" and relinquishing control on things that no longer served my purpose, I made it possible to attract what I truly wanted. 
.
2020, the year of perfect vision. Ask yourself, what you will "manifest?"

OCTOBER OPALS
OCTOBER OPALS

October 20, 2019

Fireworks, galaxies, and a shifting play-of-color are what make the opal so desirable. Opals are unlike any other gemstone in your jewelry box, beyond the myths and "supernatural" ways they form, you will never see two identical opals.
 
Opal, named from the Latin word "opalus" meaning "gemstone of many colors", was first known to mankind around 250 BC. Many cultures believed it possessed supernatural powers and carried or wore the gemstone as a prophecy and personal talisman.
