"Inner peace is overflowing
from within me and into the
lives of those around me."
~ Shawn Fontaine
I broke an expensive piece of jewelry. (gasp!)
Here I was, excited to make a sale of a Rare Purple Sapphire that I've had in my inventory for years-
and as I was getting ready to pack it up to ship it to the customer-
I was careless and broke it - it is a Briolette cut and the pointy top came off.
After I stood, stunned for a few moments- I gathered my wits.
Listening carefully to my self talk ("why does this always happen to me?" "Finally starting to get ahead- and another fail" "Why am I so careless?") I decided in the moment to deal with this differently.
Ignoring those negative voices, I created a new scenario.
"I am responsible- for my actions and my reactions; and I will take ownership of the responsibility. I choose to "REACT" differently."
After I reached out to the customer- who 30 minutes prior was super excited to own such a unique piece- I owned my mistake and told her I would cancel the whole sale on Etsy. I apologized sincerely. Once we were both done processing our feelings; I decided that I can take it to a gem cutter and have it re-fashioned. She agreed with this and asked to be shown and given the opportunity to purchase if she likes the new cut.
So, this story isn't about gems, expensive jewelry or even my Etsy shop.... it's about self-integrity and self-compassion.
I made a promise to myself to bring in this new year a new found and healthy self-talk. I have overcome many hard things in life (haven't we all?) and I know there will be more lessons to learn.
The best thing about this lesson is the way I allowed myself to feel the feelings; and move through in a much faster way than ever before.
I also made a promise to help as many people to get off the "hamster wheel" and take back their lives.
My wish for you is that 2022 is the year you learn self-compassion
and to make peace with yourself.
Why does it matter?
Because it's TIME!!
What are the goals, dreams and visions you have for yourself for this
🔥It's time to stop playing around, and distracting yourself with things that aren't moving you forward- only giving you the same results.🔥
I get it! (been there myself)
Let's learn how to make peace with yourself in 2022!
I leave you with this thought-
Don't try to do it alone anymore; energy has shifted so much that finding the right kind of support is the KEY to help you move forward.
Don't walk this path alone, find the support you need- Life is all about connecting and living from the place of joy within.
Even if we've spoken before, I encourage you to reach out to me.
