Lately I've been speaking with people about how to manage stress or anxiety. Things seem to have been amped up in the Universe and it's been causing us to look deep within.
For myself, I find it necessary to take a few minutes in the morning to sit quietly~
Since the word "meditation" causes more anxiety in people (oh...the irony); I prefer to call it "sitting."
It's easier than you think, but it does take PRACTICE, PATIENCE and KINDNESS.

I'm fascinated by Bridges...
Throughout the years, I have always been intrigued by bridges- both physically and metaphorically. I've walked across the George Washington Bridge in New York, and I've walked across the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
Each time, I found walking across both exhilarating and frightening at the same time- hundreds of feet up in the air; swirling waters below- wind whipping my hair. I walked as close to the inside rail (closer to the traffic) than to the water side. I walked briskly- heart pounding; yet didn't want to stop and going back was not an option.

Combining her love of all things relating to the energy of gems; she designed this beautiful Aquamarine and Diamond ring for a client.
"ARE YOU RETIRED?" asked my new neighbor.
Not gonna lie, this one made me cringe just a bit. You see, I work at home a lot of the time- so from her perspective, it looks like I don't leave the house.
Bringing up my feelings of un-worthiness- and that I should always "appear" busy and productive- I had to temper my reaction from the snarky-"no, I just sit around and eat bon-bons all day"- to defensive- "I work at home, so I'm busy all day long"
