1. Blog kickoff! Owning a retail store can be dangerous. When I ordered merchandise, I always ask myself if it does not sell, and I am stuck with it, do I like it? So, I often seek input on what to order from other people and explore what is available, which is fun.

I recently decided, as I have pondered it for a long time, to try one of the styling home delivery companies. So, I signed up for nadineWest and I love it! I received my first shipment, and the pieces was closest core basics such as black pants, solid-colored tops, a grey shrug and more! I encourage you to check it out!

2. It is mid-February already in #the Verde Valley of #Arizona. It has been a bit colder than usual, and winter is hanging on a bit longer than usual. I know that many people have been experiencing difficult times and there is a lot of unrest and turbulence in the World. Such things give me pause. I find that I need to stop and #center myself, be #grateful for what I have and #count my blessings. Whenever I drive into #Sedona, I think to myself how lucky I am to live here. I moved to the area early 2010. I still look at the #red rocks in wonder. There truly is no other place on earth like it. Stopping and recognizing this, driving through the red rocks, taking a hike all help me to connect back to the earth and #ground myself. It can also be a very humbling experience. With #Emerald Waves, I hope to instill, facilitate and enhance these feelings in everyone who walks in the door. We work hard to provide a comfortable environment where people can be themselves and are appreciated for who they are in this #non-judgmental atmosphere. There is few greater an honor than doing so and sharing with others to facilitate life changing memories and experiences.

3. Sometimes life really trips you up. Watching “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, she Miriam did a stand-up routine about revenge. She talked about how you get blindsided by life when you are going through your day happy. We are told to enjoy when life is good and yet are we supposed to still keep our guard up? That does not sound fun but if we do not, we get blindsided. If we do, are we reducing the periods of happy? It still amazes me how people can be so ugly. You trust someone, consider them a friend but you do not see that they really only care about themselves. Betrayal hurts. It hurts a lot. You can dwell on such things or focus on the positives. Yes, there are some crappy people but there are also so many wonderful people. There are people who care, who do not judge, who love you for who you are and have your back. This has been a core purpose for Emerald Waves. It is a place of no-judgement, a safe place, a place where people can truly be themselves. In line with Breema Body Work and the 9 Principles of Harmony, offered at Emerald Waves, we seek to make peoples’ lives better. We do not want to add any stress.
