Ginkgo Leaf Earrings!!

ginkgo_earrings

Such strength, endurance, beauty and tolerance in this tree! May these remind you of your incredible strength to endure! The ginkgo’s distinctive fan-shaped leaf has carried symbolism along with its singular beauty: the ginkgo has been a symbol of longevity (the tree can live for a thousand years) and of a more profound endurance (four ginkgos survived the blast at Hiroshima and are still growing today). xo

5 steps to LIVE your DREAM

“I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream.”

– MLK Jr.

It’s important for everyone to follow their dreams. You might want to write a book, see the world, help others, start your own business… or all of the above! With some simple guidelines, your dreams are closer than ever. Here’s how to get started:

Define your goals
It’s much easier to accomplish anything when the task at hand is clear. Try writing down everything you want out of life and break each thing down in to manageable tasks.
Aim high
This is your opportunity to think big! You have great power and your potential is unlimited, so why not shoot for the stars?! You can truly be the change you wish to see in this world, so don’t let that chance go to waste!
Learn from your mistakes
Everyone makes a mistake from time to time. What can set you apart is your ability to grow and adapt when life throws you a curve ball. The rough spots in life are best handled head on, and you’ll come out the other side a much stronger person.
Learn to say no
No is a password to the next level. Your ability to focus on your dreams can be compromised if you’re barraged with too many plans and obligations. It’s ok to say no and it will often help you get to your life destination faster and with more grace.
Get others involved
Two heads are often better than one, and when it comes to fulfilling your life ambition, friends, loved ones and your community can be the most helpful. Consider contacting your local government, create or join community groups or simply discuss your goals with friends and you’d be surprised how much people love to help.

Creating Change & Spreading Love

amy

After the events of last week I am more committed to our vision than ever … We aim to send out as much love, light and positivity into the world as possible with the pure intention to create change, lighten hearts and lift spirits. We deeply hope that these ripples will swell, combine, culminate, and vibrate out helping make life better, brighter. Jewelry is beautiful indeed but for us the mindful component is the true undercurrent of our work. In all we do we aim to bring more peace, understanding, compassion, healing, love, and harmony to our world. For all of us here at AWD, it’s all about scattering LOVE; to each other, to ourselves and to everyone we meet along our journey of life. Namaste. xo Amy

A little story from Amy – Kindness Always Wins

racepic

I came undone this week … in the best way possible. My 12-year-old son, Bennet, just started running cross country. He had his second meet yesterday. There’s always so much excitement and nerves on race day. It’s exhilarating to watch him work through his emotions. Last week I missed the beginning of the race because they started it earlier than expected. I wasn’t about to have that happen again. I was there WELL AHEAD of start time and Bennet greeted me with a warm hug and introduced me to his coach. He was jittery, smiley, excited, goofy, and wanted it to start already!

When the gun sounded, I watched him take off in the pack of kids engulfed in a cloud of dirt as they pounded the ground with their eager feet. I chatted with a few friends as we waited and around the nine-minute mark, we started wondering when the first runner would show. Mario, Bennet’s best friend, was one of the first to cross the finish line. As the runners sprinted toward the end with angst and sheer determination, I cheered and hollered with tears in my eyes as if they were each mine.

As runner after runner came around the bend, I started to wonder where my Bennie was. Had he gotten off track? Had he fallen? At about the fourteen-minute mark I saw his bright yellow, same-as-when-I-went-there, Chico Junior High shirt. I started yelling with a crack in my voice and tears streaming down my face, “Go Bennie!” He crossed the line, did some cute dance and proceeded to the drink stand.

With sweat running down his cherry red face and a smile so wide I could hardly see his eyes, I approached him and asked him how it went. He said emphatically and joyfully, “GREAT!” Considering he had come in 7th in his age division last time, I was curious why this time was different but ever so gently I inquired, “Tell me more.” He went on to say that he was really pushing himself and about to start sprinting when a teammate fell down behind him. Without a second thought, he stopped, noticed he cut his leg, lifted him up, put his arm around his shoulder, and carried him off the path. He stayed until someone came to help him. It was only then that he felt he could continue the race.

He finished 49th. He said he didn’t care what position he came in, that it wasn’t about that for him.  He told me he would always do what he did today. For him it was simple, it was about helping a friend who needed help (by the way, he didn’t even know him). Pretty simple? I think not. I’d say that was a pretty profound gesture of human kindness.

In a time when it seems to be all about negativity and hate, Bennet showed an incredible amount of love, compassion and grace. I was so moved by his selfless act. I was proud, goodness sakes, YES, but it was more. I couldn’t stop thinking about what this seemingly simple gesture really meant.

I learned a great deal from this kind-hearted kid yesterday. He demonstrated that it’s not about winning in the traditional sense, it’s just not. He showed me that we don’t need to be first, second or even third to feel that we won the race. Winning isn’t about the medal or the trophy, it’s about how we live; what we do for others; how we propel love into our world and the world of others. He taught me it means more to step outside of our own interests (our ego) and step into love. And that’s exactly what he did. We need A LOT more of that in our world. What a triumphant day. What an incredible human. I am the real winner here. I won the lottery when I became his mom.

We want to spread love everywhere.
Let’s start right now. 20% off with code MORELOVE through Sunday, October 23 at midnight.
