Becoming Vibrant - 3 Dec 2020: Day 7
Let’s divert the regularly scheduled program for one more day to chat about change. I think its incredibly relevant to our overall theme of vibrancy and my current curveball situation. Change sucks… sometimes. Nobody likes stressful experiences thrust upon them, nobody likes to feel out of control, and nobody likes to feel defeated. But let’s flip these sentiments around and look at them from a different perspective.
Since I’m the guinea pig in this little year-long vibrancy experiment, let’s imagine that I am actually the master of my own destiny and that I am manifesting the changes that are coming into my life. Hmmmm. 🤔
If that’s the case, then I am totally in control. And in my case, since stress seems to be a major bi-product of feeling out of control, and since I’m actually driving this bus, then there is no need to feel stressed - or defeated for that matter. Yeah baby, mindset shift!
Actually, I’ve been doing a massive declutter at my studio and in my personal life. It dawned on me that Jenny leaving was probably just a part of the cleaning out process. Energetically, I’m shifting into a very new way of being in the world, and maybe Jenny wasn’t meant to be part of it. Maybe that chapter of the my has just ended. No good or bad, right or wrong.
Don’t get me wrong, I feel nothing but deep affection for her and undying gratitude for all the amazing support she gave me over the years. My business wouldn’t be where it is today without her. But now it's time to let go of the old and welcome the new - and I’m happy about that.
Do you have any insights that you can share about mindset shifts, decluttering or being in or out of control? I’m turning it over to you to hear your words of wisdom… its like music to my ears.
Go on now, sprinkle that wisdom like fairy dust in comments.
PS: That’s me hanging out at the Timbermill Café, the hippest place to have coffee in the Illawarra!
BREATHE - I think I am a glass half-full person. Despite yesterday’s setback, I managed to have a great sleep and woke refreshed, ready to take on the challenge of moving forward in my business. I am choosing to be flexible and to look for opportunities. I feel really excited about the future… out with the old and in with the new!

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 💖
