Conversations about my favorite beads and lampwork bead makers, jewelry artists, indie and documentary films, gardening, food, Isaac Newton, Pinterest, and The Desire Map, all part of my continuing journey to become a better bead artist and super human being.

So Hum Arha (Sanskrit: I Am Worthy)
Every day answers a new question. On day 1 of Deepak Chopra's 21 day Meditation Challenge, I think, I
asked, “Do we know all the things in our past that hold us?” I always felt
stopped by fear in entertaining discovering the unknown
secrets of my mind, that are hidden to protect me. I always say, “I don’t need
to know what they are.”
"Our challenge is to identify the misery producing
narratives so that we can reframe them in ways that
allow our wounds to
In today’s meditation we are discovering the healing when we
know what happened in the past, the memories. “If we spent a lot of time alone
as a child, we learned how to be independent. Those of us who were not able to
spend long periods of quality time with our parents or caregivers learned how
important it is to be present, and to cherish every moment with loved ones.”
That’s not what I learned though. I learned that I didn’t deserve to have
people care about me, and that in order to deserve attention I had to be
better, good, try harder; I learned I was not enough.

Project Runway is on again!!! I miss sewing. I think I’ve
decided to wear whatever I want to wear, no matter that it is inappropriate for
the occasion (except maybe a job interview). I miss sewing; I would love to
have a dress maker’s adjustable dummy. Maybe I should do a bead and jewelry
series based on PR? I think that is a definite DO idea!!!
I have started using Google Calendar for my business revamp
efforts. I’ve been reading materials and following action prompts from Laura
Roeder’s Social Media Management
Program. I now have a twitter account @MonaRAEbeads. I need to figure that out,
learn Hoot Suite, learn word press, and make a new web site.
Wow, I’ve been making a lot of changes: Day 3 no smoking, meditating,
pushing my bead business, writing blogs almost every day, becoming more
fearless, growing a garden. I know I am not the only person revamping their
life these days.
