Do you ever feel like you wear things to remind yourself of who you are, where you’re going? For some this might be a piece of clothing or a bag, but I find that jewelry is the easiest way to do this. Whenever I need a talisman of sorts, I lean towards a necklace – something I can grasp throughout the day and hold onto when I need a moment. One word of advice: surround yourself with jewelry you love and find beautiful and you can’t go wrong.

Trisha Mitra-Nedic of Sasha Gems creates beautiful accessories that lend themselves to a place of prominence. Mitra-Nedic’s creates pieces that tell a story. The gorgeously crafted pieces in Sasha Gems speak of a simple aesthetic coupled with the idea that these pieces will stand the test of time. The Midnight Blue Sandstone Necklace and the Purple Agate Necklace both inspire a feeling of comfort that only comes to me when I feel my most beautiful. What better reminder is there? Visit Sasha Gems and find your beauty.

    I look back at photos from places I’ve been and loved (New Zealand!) or photos from home…I grew up in a beautiful valley that I was excited to leave, and now love the peace I find when I return

    I find inspiration in baking.  I’m a trained pastry chef, but haven’t been working since my daughter was born,  I still enjoy baking and creating delicious and beautiful desserts in my own kitchen.  Baking reminds me of spending time with my grandmother when I was a kid.  She was one of the main reasons I chose to pursue a career in pastries!

    I also love the 4 leaf clover!  I used to look for and pick them whenever I was outside as a kid!

    I wear a bracelet that was given to me when I was 13. I learned a million truths about myself that year, and even though I’m much older, wiser and more accepting of myself now, the reminder of the most basic version of myself is good to have around.

    I will put on one of my many favorite CD’s and just sit and listen to it instead of cleaning or laundry or kids or doing something else while its on.  It’s amazing what an inspiration the songs can be when you are totally focused on just that.

    I find inspiration in children when I need to find or be reminded of the beauty in the world. I have the wonderful opportunity of working with children as a speech-language pathologist and have found that they are simply amazing! I can always find beauty in their innocence and care free nature. It always brings life back into perspective for me. You can learn a great deal from those you teach and inspire yourself. That is where I find true beauty and inspiration.

    I play the piano.  Or I take a shower.  Or I do anything that slows the pace of life, that sends me on a little off-shoot.  To find beauty, I don’t actually need much, I just need a reminder to be alive and in the moment.  I shower often because it awakens me, and I play the piano for the same reason.  I think I’ll go do them both now!  (Not at the same time, don’t worry.)

    Hi! I love the city, but I feel inspired by the summers I spent with my family as a child. We were surrounded by rivers and mountains and we could hear the sound the cricket made. Simple, carefree and beautiful times.

    I go outside. It’s best if I lay down in the grass. When I’m standing up, all grass looks the same, but when you get down on it, you start to notice the huge variety of plants and there’s usually some sort of tiny wildflower! As long as the grass hasn’t been sprayed…. 🙂

    The mountains just west of town. Hiking in them always restores my perspective, but if I can’t go on a hike just being reminded that grand and awesome things exist in this world usually does it.

    I try to look at things through my childrens eyes. It may be the very first time they see the ocean or just picking a bunch of dandelion…The world is wide and wonderful when everything is new to you.

    My grandmother. In her 86 years, she’s experienced more than her share of ups and downs having been a child during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines, growing up incredibly wealthy to having only the clothes on her back, and moving to the US to forge a new life. At the beginning of losing her eyesight and hearing, she tells stories of when she was a girl, when she was a new mother, when she had to start over. All of her stories have purpose and aren’t simply just memories but advice on how to live, how to interact with your loved ones and strangers with love and compassion, and generally how to be a good person – not the best, but a good one.

    I go to the art show and craft fair, I see all the beautiful things that people make, sharing their talents and creating, I am filled with the joy of beautiful things, so different than the beauty of nature, plus I am excited by the people following a path that is a dream of mine!

    I look to Mother Nature for beauty and inspiration. It’s really all around us, in people, bugs, animals, trees, flowers, clouds, sunsets, and even storms. It reminds me how small I am in the world and how lucky I am to live in it. It helps me to take a step out from my busy life and just exist. To star gaze, watch the ocean waves rolling, or to feel the wind in my hair.  Hearing a child laughing or seeing a person smiling also makes you realize that happiness is beauty and vise versa. This world is gorgeous.

    I go out at night to veil myself in darkness to take photos of my city.  I revel in nature, but the urban neon lights remind me that I’m exactly where I want and need to be.

    Megan says:

    Nature, usually the sky. It’s difficult to stay stressed when I’ve focused on the feel of the wind and trees and the sky. It’s a reminder that in the grand scheme of things, my problems aren’t that big.

    I was just reading in Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead that, “There is nothing more astonishing than a human face…Any human face is a claim on you, because you can’t help but understand the singularity of it, the courage and loneliness of it.” I find this true for myself. When I’m floundering, it is the faces of those I love that bring me peace…the pure loveliness of the faces of my three wild boys, the elegant nobility of my grandmother’s face, the rugged studliness of my cowboy grandpa, the aging beauty of my most-loving of mothers. Their love and the mere fact of their existence, their uniqueness in the world, that they are mine for this fleeting time, that I can commune with them daily, the joy emanating from their very being brings me infinite exuberance.

    I find beauty and inspiration in the faces of my 3 dogs. Each has their own special features and personality. Plus wet noses, wagging tails, and loving eyes will remind you daily there is beauty in this world.

    I take a walk. Day or night- it always seems to inspire me in all the right ways. Whether inspiring me to take care of my body to be able to move in this way or inspiring my mind with all of the things and people I see- it reminds me that I am a part of something bigger and that we are all in this together.

    I take my dog out for a walk in the woods anytime I need to feel inspired.  Nature is so beautiful & peaceful it helps everytime!

    Strangely, I go to the planetarium. The shows at my local one have been so moving they’ve made me cry, to my own surprise. It really puts life in perspective for me – to see how small we are in the scheme of things, and how much there is that we don’t know. It’s terrifying and beautiful and confusing all at once, but I know that when I emerge from the planetarium, I am more appreciative of my small, tiny life than I was before. What a gift to be part of such a magnificent universe.

    I find inspiration from seeing my children’s faces.  It is just something magical about children (not even just my own).  Love the innocence and purity and sweetness that it makes me feel.

    I am a field biologist, so I am literally out in a field at least two days a week, surrounded by the natural beauty of life.  In summer months, especially, I have a hard time seeing beauty in life.  Humidity, pesky bugs, poison ivy, and intense weather make me want to call in unenthusiastic.  And I hate that.   So, when this happens I try to stop and think “How would Anne Shirley see things?” Anne would look deeper at all of these spoils of summer and find their own unique beauty.  I think she would be impressed with the determination of invasive plant species, in awe of spectacular thunderstorms that bring intense rain, and see the good in mosquitoes.  “Dear old world,” she murmured, “you are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you.” ― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

    Music. I work in an internal office in a building that lets in very little natural light. When inspiration is needed, my music is what I turn to and let the beauty wash over me from my head to my toes.
