Habit

Hello beautiful people! how are you all?
I hope 2019 is treating you well so far.

Allow me to ask you all a question that might come across as weird; Do you wear “permanent” jewelry? Like a bracelet or necklace or ring that you keep on wherever you go and whatever you do ?

I have, it’s a matter of 3 bracelets and 2 necklaces that i always have on. ALWAYS.
But the thing is, when i first put one of the bracelets on, let’s say, it felt weird like it didn’t belong on my hand, i could feel it wrapped around my wrist within every movement. i was always AWARE of its presence. As time passed on, i unconsciously acknowledged that the bracelet is wrapped around my wrist but i don’t feel its presence anymore. it just is there and i’m USED to it.

About 5 months ago when my dog bit me, i had to take the bracelets off my right hand and wear them on the left one, and there it is, that feeling again, i FEEL the bracelets on my left hand and it’s an unfamiliar feeling. you know?

I’m not writing this just to tell you about my weird non ending struggle and strife with my bracelets.
It’s because that cycle is applicable on our everyday life.

Allow me to explain myself.

Let’s say you met someone, and they’re new, you just got to meet and know them better and at first their presence is unacquainted with… as time goes by you get used to them and you get more and more comfortable around them… right?

Well let’s imagine that that person is toxic. At first you have that distance between the two of you, their presence is new and they haven’t taken their place in your routine, you still can block them out. But as time goes by, their existence gets more and more centralized in your life. They fill you up with their negativity and toxicity. They feed you bad vibes, and instead of them being somewhat strange and incompatible with your own lifestyle, they become a part of you. Just like the bracelet, at first it’s new, you acknowledge its flow in your hand, then you just forget about its existence and it becomes a part of you.

Don’t settle for it. if the bracelet doesn’t fit you, DITCH IT, meaning : if a person’s vibe feels odd, unusual, bizarre, strange, just let it go! Don’t give it time to become a part of you.

How many of you can relate ?

  1. What a great image, Saraa! Like you, I wear “permanent” jewelry. A Pandora bracelet, a necklace, two rings and an ankle bracelet. Just like you described it, it took some time to get used to each and every piece of jewelry.

    I agree that it is very similar to how we adapt to new people in our lives. And if I may add something to what you wrote, I think that not only do we sometimes let toxic people become part of our life… When we decide to let them go, there is a period of time when we miss them, even if we know that getting rid of them was the right thing to do. Just like your wrist probably felt naked, when you had to take your bracelet off. And that probably explains why it is often very difficult to take the decision to walk away from someone who has a negative influence on our life…

    Great post, Beautiful! Very thought provoking! Bravo 🙂
