For many months I spent countless hours thinking of the type of piece I wanted to design—it had to be a piece that was not only attractive but inspirational in that it would remind the wearer to focus on the beauty of life, living to your full potential and having a positive attitude.
The answer came from a higher source. One day I woke up with two words in my mind—positivity equals prosperity. Why these two words? For the past several months I’ve spoken to so many people that have been affected by the current global crises. As well, every time I open the newspaper or watch the news, the words are so powerfully negative—recession, economic hardships, unemployment, foreclosures, depression, anxiety and sleeplessness.
Now for someone who practices positive affirmations everyday, who is upbeat, happy and always smiles (and no I don’t live in Disneyland) I had enough of the daily negative reminders. We get it, we know!!
How we handle, react and accept things are keys to our emotional and spiritual well being. As well, our inner dialogue or self-talk is the key to how we handle and react to situations. Have you ever noticed that when you think of something that brings you joy, recall a happy event or think of a single word that is positive, you feel good and most likely have a smile on your face and calmness may come upon you?
Three of my favorite words are sunshine, blessings and positive. These words are spoken or thought of interchangeably everyday depending on the situation.
The world needs a shake-up to get out of this negative mind set. When you are positive you are prosperous in all areas of your life—relationships, health, work, emotions, etc. We cannot control what is happening in the world, but we certainly can take charge of our mind set and change the way we think, react and accept things in our lives. Being positive is a state of mind and the world needs to embrace a new way of thinking in order to change all the negative energy. You can dramatically improve the quality of your life especially your health.
I truly believe in my heart that these words positivity equals prosperity, are an inspiration from a higher source. I believe we can all find an inspiration in our hearts if we truly reach out, but also reflect within ourselves.
Being positive is a state of mind and the world needs to embrace a new way of thinking in order to bring about positive changes. When you are positive in your thought, attitude and actions you are prosperous in all areas of your life.
I wanted to capture in my design the essence of my thoughts that would uplift one’s spirit, re-energize the psyche, change the inner dialogue and mind set so that when one wore this piece the words positivity equals prosperity would be their reminder to think, react, act positively, but most importantly to believe in themselves that they can make a positive difference in their lives by focusing on only the good.
