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.
