A little karma…

Just putting it out into the universe, I’m a little tired at the moment. Life is in the process of flipping me some great big changes, so my emotional energy reserves are running a bit low. As I was walking home yesterday, I actually caught myself doing something a little absurd – I was too busy looking at everyone else’s nice pictures on Instagram that I was missing the beauty of my own street (and my street is a beauty – I live on the most gorgeous street in Surry Hills).

I know I’m not alone in feeling a little run down and distracted. I often get this way as I’m heading towards the finish line before a holiday, or at the end of winter when I just can’t stand the sight of scarves and grey clouds any more. I get crabby when I’m like this too – less inclined to be focused, present, kind to others and kind to myself.

Have you heard of Dogeared jewellery? I love Dogeared’s stuff – it’s so fine and delicate. I actually bought some Dogeared earrings in New York and haven’t taken them off since I bought them. Anyway, Dogeared have a really beautiful necklace called Karma. It’s a simple ring on an 18” chain that is designed to remind you that what goes around, comes around. When a dear friend gave me a gift voucher for ECLEKTICA.com and I saw they had it in stock, I knew I had to have it.

I have been wearing my karma necklace to remind myself that what you give out, you get back. Keep it positive. It shouldn’t take a piece of jewellery to remind us of something so basic, but sometimes, when the emotional tank only has a few drops left, we need a little cue.

Have a great weekend x

Disclosurey stuff: The gift voucher from my friend was $50. I paid the difference of $15. Looks like they don’t currently have the silver in stock, only the gold or the triple ring silver, both of which are $10 more expensive. 

Edited 15/10 to add: there is a real irony that this post attracted troll comments, with people criticising my appearance. How about some of that karma, hey.

    Hope everything’s ok.

    I’ve been having an existential crisis for the past 7 years with no sign of abating, so I certainly understand that low, distracted feeling in a general way.

    Lovely piece of jewellery. Hope it brings you some lovely, fluffy things in your universe to make you feel better!
