For 40 days, I will make it a priority to wake up early or make the time at lunch to meditate and create with positive vibes. Taking the inspiration from my mala making session, I will meditate on my purpose for the day while also focusing on positive energy and the things that I am grateful for (which isn't always easy for me). Since I love the energy of "good vibes", I obviously want to share them with others, so for the 40 days of this practice, I will create a mala bracelet a day, focusing on what I love about them/how I appreciate them and send a note of positivity on to that specific person (and also literally using the USPS). I will also share with my readers about that person and in short what it is about them that I admire. My goal is to bring Prosperity, as in the state of good fortune, comfort and well-being to both myself and my people. I ordered some special beads that had meaning and also decided to incorporate ones that I have been collecting over the years from vintage vendors, flea markets and the like. I wanted these to be special and personal, so that if the recipient did want to use them as prayer beads or worry beads (more likely my use), they'd have something special to hold.
It's my Grandma Barbara's birthday today so I thought who better than to honor today than this special lady who brought my Mother into the world who would then bring fabulous me into the world. I kid, I kid... but seriously, Barb is the OG badass. She's fought Breast Cancer (and won!), she's traveled the world, she, even as an ol' lady, acts in a progressive and admirable way. She's one tough cookie who has been an inspiration to me! Barb your bracelet is in the mail, and it was sent with another little gift that I meant to send for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (sorry, I'm late!) but the bracelet is meant to match. Vintage beads, grey feldspar and pink for you! Grey feldspar is meant to honor you as a woman, which I hope is how you feel today. Happy Birthday, Grandma! XO
