Today I want to talk about how I chose my accessories. See for me, if I’m going to invest in a piece of designer jewelry, there has to be some kind of meaning behind it. Whether it’s the date it was made, or it has a metaphorical message behind it, that’s how I decide on a purchase or not. I also found that I spend less frequently if I make purchases with intention. So let me share the story of what my Bvlgari Serpenti Bracelet means to me.
The Bulgari Serpenti Bracelet represents “renewal and rebirth”, for me that’s about my transformational journey as an entrepreneur. The snake aka the serpent sheds its old skin which to me represents releasing the old or negative energy from our lives. The snakes new freshly grown skin represents new beginnings and/or rebirth.
I received this bracelet for the 1 year anniversary of the closing one of my previous businesses that I had for 8 years. I know it may sound weird to celebrate the closing of a business but believe me, the closing was absolutely necessary. I needed a change desperately and in 2015 I decided it was time. I didn’t have it all figured out, and if I’m being completely honest, I still don’t. I can tell you one thing though, I have not one regret! NOT ONE!
If you are holding on to something that isn’t fulfilling you, let it go. I know it may seem scary, and honestly, it is, but the alternative is so much scarier don’t you think?
