What Lights You Up?
There's a town about 3 hours from my house called Quartzite, Arizona. It's a dry dusty one street little place that isn't open in the summer, except the gas stations and fast food for those of us who travel the highway from California into Arizona.
My favorite store in the world, called Gem World, is in this middle of nowhere town. It's nothing more than a huge warehouse filled with dust from the road and a whole ton of randomness... and the most spectacular rocks and crystals and beads at seriously ridiculously low prices.
It's like heaven on earth for me.
I leave dirty, with a bag filled with $200 worth of beads and rocks and stones every time I go.
And the twinkle in my eye is undeniable.
I can't wait to go play with my treasures.
In fact, the only reason I started making Malas (aside from the fact that I actually use them of course) was because I had so many stone beads I just couldn't justify another trip to Gem World without having done SOMETHING with them.
Every time I touch those beads I twinkle.
Every time I see the incredible crystals I've brought home, I twinkle.
Every time I turn on the salt lamps and selenite lamps I've gotten there, I twinkle.
So yes, my rocks and my connection to how they came into my life... and Gem World - inspire me.
From a place of inspiration and twinkly eyes, we can create anything. From a full soul filled with joy, magic can happen.
What lights you up?
And can you connect with that spark just a little each day so that the glitter seeps into what you're creating in the world?
