It’s time to reveal the work of over 50 jewelry designers that joined my Wellness Words Jewelry Challenge. I issued this challenge one month ago. It required a little thinking and soul searching on the part of the designers in addition to jewelry making. You can click here for the inspiration and details about this challenge if you are new or missed the original post.
I have to tell you, for the girl that created this challenge, for the one that felt it would be easy to come up with a word or phrase – it turned out to be harder than I anticipated. There are so many specific things I want to work on this year and when I wrote about this challenge, I did not have a clue what words I would use! I discovered how many words and phrases resonate with me and then I was reminded of how indecisive I can be at times when it comes to making a committment! In the end, I’m happy where I landed. Instead of being specific, my words represent more of a theme for the way I want to live my life and the way I want to make decisions to improve my overall well being.
I want to appreciate (love) myself more and make a point to show more love and appreciation to those that are important to me. Sending out more love is a great way to receive and feel more love – and hey – it’s February!
Living on purpose means that I want to fill my time with things that are most important to me. I want to really take the time to plan things that propel me forward with my goals and then follow through and get them done. I want to take action to finish projects that are almost done and stop letting little excuses get in my way. I want to have less days where I’m busy all day – but I never quite feel like I accomplished what I wanted to. Can anyone relate? I don’t think I’m done with word jewelry. After doing this exercise, I definitely think I am going to be making more expressive jewelry.
I can’t wait to see everyone’s words and the jewelry they created. Thanks to everyone who put themselves out there and I hope this gives you some ideas and motivation for positive change this year!
