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.
Today, I'm honoring Jessica Diaz, whom I met at a Barre-less Barre event way earlier in the year, maybe February? She was the instructor, all gorgeous and fit, leading such an amazingly effective workout... but what really, really inspired me about her was her willingness to share her story with us all. Rather than explain it all here, you can read this article, How a Stroke at 36 Changed My View on Health. Whoa, just typing the sentence, I'm like "WHOA". She's sharing her story to raise awareness of your healthy and being mindful to take care of yourself. She's not just a beautiful barre instructor, she's a beautiful woman on the inside, friendly and kind, exactly the type of person you want to surround yourself with. Please stop by to read her piece and her blog Ms. Fit for Society! For Jessica's bracelet, I combined a lot of grey, I don't know why I felt compelled to but it soothed me and I hope it does for her as well. Grey Marble and Feldspar, which helps us find unique and unconventional ways to achieve our goals as well as find self-love.
Be sure to keep up with the entire series, all 40 days worth!
