Spring Forward

 Devotion Necklace - ©2010 Barbe Saint John

To be honest, I'm not a fan of the time change. I truly feel like I have "lost" an hour, when I know it's just psychological, we don't lose anything it just shifts. Still, I feel great about "gaining" an hour in the fall and getting an extra hours sleep.

This week has been a series of setbacks. I haven't posted much because I don't want to sound like a broken record. I also believe that whatever we focus on, we bring more of into our lives, so if I wrote everyday how much pain I was in I would just be inviting more of the same. NOT a good thing. I'm trying quietly to shift focus to feeling health, not pain. I'm also trying to not complain either-that has been VERY challenging to do LOL

To keep it positive, I've gotten a few things added to my website and took a few photos over the weekend (Devotion pictured above). I hope to send out a wholesale newsletter this week, but I want to be sure I have a wellstocked website before I do.

Beautiful necklace Barbe. I'm not a fan of the time change either.

Hope your arm/shoulder starts feeling better soon. Take care.
