Becoming Vibrant - 28 Nov 2020: Day 2
The journey begins - my quest to answer the question: how can we age vibrantly? Now, I'm sure you're all wondering what the heck I've gotten myself into this time! And how is this darn thing going to work? Well, it's something like this - there are 9 key areas of vibrancy and when all these areas are balanced and moving forward, we achieve true vibrancy. Check them out:
But let's define vibrancy, shall we? It's an important exercise, because if we define it, we can measure it:
Vibrancy is the energy we feel when we are moving, thinking and feeling our best. It is the quality of being energised, excited and enthusiastic about our life and our future.
Is that how you would describe yourself? Maybe a little bit? Ok, let's dive in a wee bit deeper over the next few days and really get clear on these nine areas and how we can improve them *together* - yes, I'm not doing this all on my own!
So until my next post, pop a number in comments between 1 to 10 to rate yourself against my definition of vibrancy (today I give myself an 8, because I’m still basking in the birthday glow). Here’s a guide to the rating:
1 = good god I'm a sloth - do I even have a pulse?
10 = my light shines so bright I'm causing onlookers to go blind!
Go on now, pop your number in comments.
BREATHE. All too often, we are so busy taking care of everyone else, that we forget to take of ourselves. This was definitely true for me. I realised that my physical, emotional and mental wellbeing had taken a turn for the worst. It took turning 50 to get back on track and make me put self-care as priority number one again.
RECOMMENDATION. As part of my learning, I am keen to try a vast range of books, seminars, retreats, wellness experiences or weird, wacky and wonderful natural therapies that will support my journey. If you have a recommendation of a product or service that I could try, please get in touch. I'd love to give it a shot and do a little video showcase to share with everyone. Please email me here:
DISCUSSION. For more fun stuff like challenges and deep and meaningful discussions, please join my Facebook group and invite your friends!

THIS IS ME
A SMALL INTRODUCTION. I left Canada to marry a wonderful Aussie man and was just settling into motherhood when he suffered a stroke from a bad neck manipulation. It was a difficult time and I was left to take care of my baby, my husband and maintain the household on my own. I was exhausted and quickly realised that if I didn’t take care of myself, my health would fail and my family would fall apart. I refused to let that happen, so self-care became my focus.
IT TOOK TIME. But I got through it and was determined to turn my experience into a blessing. I left my career in architecture and started Kaya Jewellery, where I create meaningful keepsake pieces that bring comfort and hope, helping people get through their difficult times, just as I did.
To support people in their wellness journey, our designs combine meditation and positive affirmations with healing crystal gemstones and lava beads to diffuse essential oils.
Wear them to help you get past your challenges so you can reclaim your vibrancy. You’ll feel the positive energy that is infused in your special piece and it will help you move forward. I know you’ll love yours.
Sending hugs, Marlowe 💖
