A New Direction

~*:: Chocolate & Raspberries, $189 at Kasia Blue ::*~

Some say that life cycles in sevens.  Every seven years your cells have fully regnerated and the human body is completely brand new.  Seven is a spiritual number, that is true, yet in the cycles of seven it is five that seems to have my life defined.  Case in point: in the year 2000 I had my first child and started a new job.  Five years later, things changed again with moves, meeting new groups of people, job changes.  Now, again, five years down the road, things are about to take me on a new journey.  I have switched jobs (really, seriously, nearly 5 years to the date).  I will no longer be directing the Handbell Group that I have been with for 5 years.  There is more, of course, but I must keep some things close to my heart.  Suddenly it feels as if so much has fallen away, that burdens have been lifted and doors opened so that I can fill my coffers with new and exciting escapades.  I feel the breeze....and it feels so good.

All that said, my creative side is making a change as well.  My designs are evolving into something more intricate and one of a kind.  Bejeweled, curved and complex (much like me...snicker).  No longer is cookie cutter appealing to me, although my current dedsigns that are simpler can, and will stay in the lineup, you will now be seeing the addition of these more decadent beauties.  Also, with my Body Luxe line, I too will be ramping it up, so to speak, with layered and thoughtful fragrances that speak to your body, mind and spirit.  I have discovered that "one note" is just not me.  That's good, because I have been stuggling to be myself yet trying to please the masses.  And although that may be my business side talking, I still need to find room for the the unique and unusal.  Without that, I will not evolve...or be happy.

Change is good.

~*:: Convergence Necklace in Sterling Silver, $49 at Kasia Blue ::*~

Balance.  It is a common theme that has been woven through my life like fine silken thread handspun by the hand of God.  Things are never one way or the other, for a balancing force will come to equalize any joy, celebration, heartbreak or woe.  In my life, they are hand in hand.

It's funny, others seem to have continual flow of goodness (whether real or perceived)  that does not seem to be countered by the notorious balancing force that is swift and timely.  Maybe it is not their lot to be down the middle road, the one that I have chosen to walk in this lifetime.  Maybe they have chosen boundless abundance and an easy life.  I'm sure that all is not as beautiful as it seems looking through the kaleidoscope of life.

I chose to call the above necklace Convergence, for it seems to be the perfect balance between soft and hard, angular and smooth.  I love the smoothness of the cut plane that contrasts with the rough crystalline druzy that awaits on the inside.  A perfect balance of natural beauty.

 Balance has kept things in perspective.  Balance has made me compassionate, loving and thankful for all that I do have.  There is always bliss to be found in despair, direction in the mire of stagnancy, hope in the darkness of the soul and love in the heartbreak of loss.

All being said, I am grateful.
