Moving right along

In the last few weeks of my Etsy shop career, things have been all abuzz.  Packing the orders and giving great deals to everyone who stops by has been such fun.    As a life long retail person, I have to admit that selling is fun!!

And then...... as always with perfect timing ....  I received this re-minder today in my email box from one of my most favored guides - Abraham-Hicks:

If your dominant intent is to feel joy while you are doing the work, your triad of intentions—freedom, growth and joy—will come quickly and easily into alignment. See your "career" as one of creating a joyful life experience. You are not a creator of things or a regurgitator of what someone else has created or a gatherer of stuff. You are a creator, and the subject of your creation is your joyful life experience. That is your mission. That is your quest. That is why you are here.
---Abraham

Such a great reminder!!  Because I am having so much fun and joy with events taking place right now, more of it just keeps coming along!  Doesn't that just make ya smile?

Still not sure what happens after Etsy - but certainly not worrying about it either. I'm just loving my health, my good days, my family, my friends and all my connections.  I am so blessed!

So I keep thinking about this "retirement thingie".  Still not sure exactly what it means for me except one thing for sure - I'll be watching the diamonds on the lakes and rivers in the years ahead - and boy do I know where THAT inspiration comes from!  I've always had such a soft spot for vintage crystal jewelry.  The 50s and the 60s have a terrific glimmer appeal.   Even last night while watching the clips from the older White House Correspondents' Association dinner events - up comes Laura Bush wearing a fabulous crystal necklace!  Did you catch that? 


There's lots of great history connected with these amazing beads too.  Be sure to check out the earlier piece I did - Aurora Borealis
