Changes...

I believe in the healing powers of mother nature & her stones... Today I made this necklace... it's a fabulous stone called mookite (or mookaite) from Western Australia...

Mookaite's main purpose is to promote the acceptance of chance, and to encourage the desire for variety and new experiences. They also believe it promotes inner calm while simultaneously promoting the desire for adventure.

"They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself." ... Andy Warhol

Change can be quite scary and exciting at the same time... I've been going through a lot of changes lately... a divorce, new apartment, making new friends, new grandson, and a new Etsy store (my online shop). I have known for some time that changes needed to be made in my life, but the question had always been: “How do I muster up the courage to make the changes that I so desperately want to make?” Not making changes has always been easier for me... even when I was in a quite painful situation - at least there is comfort in the familiar and I just stuck it out.. hoping for change - but not creating any significant changes myself.

What happens if we don’t heed the wisdom in our hearts that may be telling us it’s time for a change?
We risk getting stuck in a life-long rut and living a “status quo” life, which may remain the same without any change for years, and, worse yet, a life in which, we may never realize our fullest happiness and potential.

Ok... so I made a change... a BIG one and I'm terrified.... Sometimes I sit and wonder what it is that I'm afraid of, and other times I wonder what it is I'm not afraid of. What is running away? Changing? Not changing? Should I have stayed??? I'm 45... been married three times... When does that statute of limitations run out when you can really change your life?

I have no answers yet... but I'm working on it!
