Becoming Vibrant - 6 Dec 2020: Day 10
Another focus area in the quest for aging with vibrancy is our relationships with other family members. Lucky for me, I am seriously blessed in this department. Even though my folks are in Canada and my brother is in America, and I wish I could see them more often than I do, my in-laws totally make up for it because they are A.W.E.S.O.M.E!
Check out that pic of me and Uncle Tim - my husband’s uncle. He turned 80 a few days before I turned 50. How cute is he… I just love him! Big smoochy, Uncle Tim - and yes ladies, if you’re wondering, he is single and totally available! 🤣🤣🤣
Familial Vibrancy is the area of Partner and Family.
Let’s face it, life is challenging and we all need as much love and support and acceptance as we can get. Unfortunately, getting it from our immediate family is not always possible. Even the happiest families have challenges. It’s normal to have ups and downs with our partner, our kids, our in-laws and other family members. Then again, there are families who seem to struggle more than others.
My long term goal for this area is to become the type of person that is fulfilled, happy and connected with my husband, my children and my extended family.
So tell me about your familial vibrancy. Are you estranged from anyone in your family? Have you got a Black Sheep of the family that tends to stir up negativity and trouble? Or maybe you’re the Black Sheep and darn proud of it! Do you get on with everyone, or is there one or a few family members that drive you completely berserk? 🤯

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 💖
