What Does Reinvention Have To Do With Jewelry?
Let's talk about the reinvention of women. Reinvention always involves four things:
- Learning new skills
- Having a new routine
- Change of appearance
Every time we change our roles, we change our self image and enter a new world with different skills, routine, appearance. Navigation in that new world requires courage.
For example, imagine a woman in her 40's who is an operations manager in a large company. She is usually running around her department in clothing that is rather nondescript standard casual office gear.
She gets a promotion that now involves travel and presentations speaking to small groups. Quick - what are the things that are probably running through her mind?
- "What?! The last time I presented was in Kindergarten!"
- "Oh boy, travelling means I'll need to change my schedules for parenting, carpooling,..."
- "Yikes! Public speaking means I need to look the part. How am I going to pull that off with this tired-out look? I look like a supervisor, not a regional director! A new haircut! New makeup! Clothes! DreamStonz jewelry!" [shameless plug]
- "OMG, I don't know if I can pull this off. I need a dose of courage...meditation....wine!...DreamStonz!!" [it's true, I'm shameless].
See? New skills, routine, appearance, courage make reinvention possible.
The same sort of thing happens when we become, well, women to begin with, mothers, wives, a career woman, divorced, retired...
I hope DreamStonz Jewelry becomes a talisman for the reinventing woman. She is my muse as I design each piece.
I want her to put on her jewelry and feel just a bit more ready, willing, and able to move in the direction of her dream. To become a Goddess of Reinvention,
I want to give her a platform in this blog to read interesting material she can relate to, share her story, find brilliant hacks; get sage advice from those who have walked her path, and share her wisdom with those who are in her rearview mirror on her path. Oh yeah, and share a laugh!
If you've read this far, you are probably a Goddess of Reinvention, so welcome to the tribe!
