Summer is the perfect time to hit the reset button. To rest, reboot, and come back refreshed and ready to take on the world. Right?
Well, I took a vacation to visit family for a week in the midwest, and I had a blast! The weather was great, the grass was actually green, and I got to kick back, relax, and enjoy some good Wisconsin beer with people that I love.
But you know what wasn't such a blast? Getting back into actually working again. If taking breaks to reboot is supposed to be like hitting the refresh button, why is it always so hard to gain back your momentum?
It may sound weird, but rubies made that transition just a little bit easier. Yep. Ever since I was a kid, I've always thought rubies were such a luxe, magical gemstone.
But now it's like, who cares if my birthday is in July?! I want to wear some ruby earrings, and who's gonna stop me?!
I used to wish my birthday was in July so I could have ruby as my birthstone. (I'm a May baby, and emeralds, while beautiful, just aren't the same in my mind.)
Anyways, as I was playing with rubies in my studio, I also started looking more at the meaning and properties of the ruby. Ruby is the stone of manifestation. The stone of vitality. The stone of love and energy.
Most interestingly, the ruby is a great stone to have around when making decisions, setting goals, finding motivation, and following your bliss. Perfect for getting back in the groove of things after a vacation!
So, if you're in the same boat, get yourself a new pair of ruby earrings.
Or if you need a July birthday gift for a friend (or yourself!), now is the perfect excuse to shop!
