Bracelet's - The Circle of Life



Add Fairy Dust, Hope & Love




Fall is a Glorious Time


With the changing of the seasons, fall apparel and jewelry take center stage.  The time has come once again to store summer shorts, tee shirts and bring out sweaters, boots and so much more.  However, jewelry always remains in style and constant. Recently while out and about I stumbled upon several gorgeous bracelets. Bracelets either alone or stacked add fairy dust and happiness to any outfit.  I started thinking about the shape of a bracelet and perhaps how it could be symbol for hope and love.  The circle shape of a simple bracelet in gold, silver or any hue reminds me of the circle of life.  And, the circle of life is love.  Today, when the world is topsy turvy, emotions are high, selfishness is paramount sprinkled with greed, lust and envy it is pertinent to wear something that reflects the meaning of life.  A circle embodies the journey that all of us are blessed and lucky to partake.  Instead of filling the soul with hate, the mind with rage, and the body with anger why not fill it with love, strength, and hope for our fellow man?  It is indeed sad when humankind destroys, picks, judges and demands change when facts are few, listening is absent and one is completely unwilling to understand another.  Listening is powerful, yet listening means understanding and understanding means that you might disagree with the answer. And, love means learning to disagree without anger.  I have been pondering this thought and reflecting on the history of worthy nations that fell from grace for their insistence in forgoing love and instead embraced the tenants of evil. Or of relationships where people want to control others for their own benefit and gain.  Instead of examining their hearts for answers or facing their own pain it is much easier to attack, criticize, to take from than to accept another human beings decision.  Controlling others or listening without empathy, ignoring facts is a nothing new and has been apart of the human condition since the beginning of time.  It is pattern.  And, in mankind's history as with friendships judging and destroying others caused and causes great chaos with friends and formidable nations therefore leaving immeasurable and horrific stains never to be forgotten.

Do You Control, Ignore or Listen and Love? 


Perhaps donning a bracelet of two or three, can help spread love, hope, happiness and a reminder that a circle represents your life from start to finish.  Do you want to spend everyday wallowing in hate and anger towards people that you have no say or control over?  To those who have differing opinions or thoughts? Your own adamant thoughts and opinions can cloud judgement and lesson the opportunity to reach out with love.  The ability to see both sides, understand facts, or emotions and then clearly make a decision is called critical thinking.  If you put your head in the ground and state "I am right and you are wrong" then you will suffer the consequences of a lack in connection to others. Thus you will become increasingly isolated and lonely with anger and hate overtaking your own heart.  You will feel not heard because you didn't try or even want too.  It is a vicious cycle.  When one believes that their way is the only way then they have fallen into the trap of mankind which throughout history destroyed nations and their people.  Power corrupts. Power can be evil. And, ultimately control of another individual is an infantile illusion.

Your Life, Your Choice. Who Do You Want to Be? 


Who do you want to be? It is your journey.  Your decision and your choice.  Which road will you follow? The one less traveled or the one filled with everyone stating the same mantra without sufficient thought, reflection, listening and facts?  The choice is yours.  The world is not black and white, right or wrong.  It is instead filled with many shades of grey.  We must pray for those that are victimized, those who live in pain and we must seek to bring us all together with loving hands.


A Circle, A Bracelet


A bracelet symbolizes love, eternity, strength and light.  Show the world love, be the essences of love, and look for the good.   Of course, have an opinion but remember you are not omnipotent.  Not the final word of another's life or path.  You are not living it.  You cannot be that person. You cannot walk in their shoes. You cannot judge.  Do not relish destruction, hate and anger for another.  Because if you do you are only destroying yourself by hanging onto all that is unworthy about being a human. Negative energy begets a negative life.   Love is the message of the circle.  The circle of life is love.  And a pretty bracelet is a daily reminder of love or so I would like to think it is in my world.

Books to Read - February 2021

  Read, Read, Read "We read to know we are not alone." C.S. Lewis Do you love to read? I do.  In fact, I always have a book on deck for my pleasure.  I wake up in the morning and carry my favorite novel downstairs.  It is how I start and end my day.  I am always reading.  It is my quintessential past time.  What do I like about the novels I chose?   I enjoy historical fiction with tales about the human condition.  Or I love stories told in a new place that I have never visited. Afterwards, I want to travel there and sink into the surroundings.  If I enjoy an author, I will read ALL  his or her books.  I tend to read books where the woman is the lead character.   I enjoy the strife, angst, and messiness of the characters' lives and how they prevail with strength, wisdom and love.  The struggle reminds me of the complexity of life and the beauty all in one snapshot.   Additionally, authors who share human drama, vivid details of the landscape and scenery plus poured their h

Happy Valentines Day 2021

  Love is in the Air!!!  Or is it Snow? "Where there is love there is life." Mahatma Gandi What Does Valentine's Day Mean to You?  It is snowing hard here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have eight inches, and it is still swirling down and covering everything.  The beauty of snow changing the landscape is a sight to behold.  Ever since I was a child, I have loved the snow.  We used to play endlessly in the streets building snowmen, having snowball fights, making snow angels, sledding and creating igloos. We did not go inside until we were cold, wet, and hungry.  We were always in the elements playing with friends or family members. The days of being a child without a care in the world are indeed cherished.  Today, I love the sound of kids playing in the snow.  It is wonderous.   Of course, Valentines Day 2021 for me is a winter wonderland.  Hopefully, we will continue to have power.  It remains to be seen.  Mother nature moves at its own pace and can never be accurately pr

Winter Fashion 2021

  The Chilly Artic "Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016) The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high.  It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer. 

Perfume Spritz - My Favorite Things

  Beauty in a Bottle "Perfume heralds a woman's arrival and prolongs her departure." Beauty is hard to describe.  The very essence of what is beautiful varies from person to person, culture to culture and land to land.  Perfume is similar to the idea of beauty. It is subjective.  Perfume is a mystery, and its elixir is a marvel. The scent becomes its own magic.  It is the lingering scent that creates a moment or recreates a memory of a person.  Whether it is spice, floral or warm notes of lavender or vanilla, a scent can bring immense comfort and pleasure.  What does stand the test of time is a signature perfume.  Perfume was created in 1340 for the Queen of Hungary.  Thus, the story of fragrances commenced.  Perfume remains at the top of everyone's list of "feeling good."  Additionally, perfume sales in 2020 were close to $34B.   We all have experienced being around someone who smells divine.  The scent is memorable and hard to capture in a bottle.
