Another year, another set of new year’s resolution for most people.  But then again, it’s perfectly okay to not have a specific list for a change.  After all you don’t want to go through feeling like a failure after missing spinning class, or taking a bite out of that delicious-looking brownie midway through Day 3!

How about just some words of wisdom from great minds and big hearts?

Below are some of my fave quotes on celebrating and appreciating another new year…

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR, DARLINGS!
LET’S MAKE 2017 ANOTHER FABULOUS ONE!

Next Stop: Bali

Breaking up with stress….

Aloha world,

Yes, it’s me, Honey, and I am alive and breathing fabulously, thank you 😉
Life has been very busy, as usual. My last post was almost 3 months ago (yikes!), and I know, I know, I always say I would post more, and from now on, I’ll try.

In between fashion shows, pageants, jewelry design, and over-stressing- I’ve been going 100 miles and hour, never stopping. That’s why, darlings, I have not been able to sit and blog.

I thought I did things more than enough to not stress about them, but I feel almost always flustered, and that’s not good, because it ages me AND it makes me feel crappy. I lose sleep, wake up with circles under my eyes, break out, have stomach cramps, and headaches, ughhhh. Stress is like a bad boyfriend- the kind that keeps you up all night wondering what he’ll do this time to disappoint you and make you cry. Yup…what a crappy, crappy feeling. This not-so-good feeling turns you into a monster, “the bitch” and it makes you the bad person in the relationship. The only way to make this feeling go away is to end it once and for all. So I will…

….because I decided to break up with the one thing that’s overtaking my life….stress.

Proof below:::

Dear stress,

Let’s break up.

Love,
Honey

Alright, now just like after a break up, and you start on a clean slate. Out with the old, and in with the new.

…regardless of who, or what you’re breaking up with…the best advice is below::::

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together. ~Liz Taylor

Breaking Up with Stress

Another great idea would be list the things you want in your new lover. For a stress-free attitude, I’ve compiled some wonderful quotes to remember, to help relax my mind. Hope this helps you as well, darlings!

Slow down and everything you are chasing will come around and catch you. ~John De Paola

Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. ~Natalie Goldberg

Give your stress wings and let it fly away. ~Terri Guillemets

There is more to life than increasing its speed. ~Mohandas K. Gandhi

Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it. ~Ray Bradbury

Set peace of mind as your highest goal, and organize your life around it. ~Brian Tracy

Live in the present and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering. ~Ida Scott Taylor

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place. ~Kurt Vonnegut

Now, just breathe…..and…

Relax

Peacocks & Paper Cranes

These past three weeks of my free time I had spent creating beautiful accessories with special meaning and symbolism.

Earrings and pens made from beautiful and vibrant Tibetan peacock feathers symbolizing beauty, grace, enlightenment, protection, renewal and good luck…

Inspired by my lucky peacock decor that hangs in my living room, I wanted to share the goodness I feel when I see it…The vibrant hues lifts up any spirit, and encourage a promising tomorrow.

I have also learned to fashion paper crane earrings created from high-quality origami yuzen paper. Various beads, gemstones and pearls are incorporated into the paper crane to create unique earrings- none of the designs are the same.

Tsuru, or paper crane is a symbol of hope, peace, happiness, loyalty, good health and yes, good luck. Legend has it is you make fold 1000 paper cranes, and you get to make a wish.

My wish in this lifetime, is to sell one thousand paper crane earrings.

Pens and earrings will be posted for sale on my Etsy within the next few days. Hope you like them! They make perfect Mother’s Day Gifts 😉

Love & Happiness

Are you happy?

Happiness is a choice.  Choose it.  It’s not hard.

Just live life as if everything is magnificent, a miracle.  Look beyond the imperfections, the teeny things that don’t matter because there’s bigger more important things that do.  Enjoy, seize and love every moment. In reality it’s not really what you have that makes you happy… or who or where you are, or what you’re doing….It’s what you think. If you’re in a miserable place but you think beautiful, happy thoughts, then you’re happy.  Believe that if you think it, it will be.  So if you want to be happy, there is no other way but to be.

And love?

Don’t go looking for it.  Because it will find you. I promise.

Love yourself first.  Love the world and the people around you, and everything will fall into place.

The person you are meant to be with- he/she will come around.  The secret is to know that the this person, they’re already a part of you.  And when that one day come, you will know. 

So don’t worry…be happy.
