RedWall Jewelry is a unique little shop excelling in handmade jewelry from silver and gold. Like Susan Harbourt Designs, the shop is making beautiful jewelry from metals that are affordable and durable for the new customers. RedWall Jewelry specializes in out of the ordinary, handmade fine jewelry pieces in every price range. They pride themselves in having something for everyone. Whether you are looking for beautiful turquoise, classic hammered silver, multi gemstone rings, glittering diamonds set in gold, vibrant australian opals, or brightly colored fused glass pieces RedWall Jewelry has it and more! The shop has been around for quite some time and was established in the 1970s in Cloudcroft, New Mexico.
The name RedWall was created when Stacy Jones, the owner, and her husband bought their first home together. There was no heat or water for the first couple months in their teeny tiny home they called The Shack. The Shack did however, have a bright cherry red wall which became an inspiration for Stacy in more than one way. The red wall kept her thinking of how to keep positive and get over the obstacles in life. The wall was a blessing indisguise and kept her thinking "99% of success is attitude" and RedWall Jewelry became alive. ! Next time you pass this unique little shop, you can remember where the name came from!

When you complete a big accomplishment, and you are asked how you did, do you normally focus on what you did wrong...or do you celebrate what you did well?
I admit that I have a habit of dwelling on what I didn't do as well as I had wanted. Sometimes I even get on a fixation loop of replaying my mistakes in my head. But what I have learned is that this is not a productive behavior and can lead to anxiety and depression.
What I have started to do is focus on what I did well and acknowledge that first. Then instead of looking at my errors as mistakes, I view them as areas of improvement instead of calling them failures. For every area of improvement that I identify, I assign a new action or make a plan to improve so that maybe I don't repeat that behavior or pattern in the future.
Today I want you to reflect on 2020. Push those negative thoughts aside.

Every great movie has a great soundtrack that accompanies it. The music sets the stage for the emotions of every scene. It pulls you in, your heart syncs with the rhythm of the beat, and you will connect with the moment and really feel the emotion more deeply than if there was no music.
Visualize this: If you could write your movie, the way you would want it to look, what would the story be?

The ability to relate and to connect, sometimes in odd and yet striking fashion, lies at the very heart of any creative use of the mind, no matter in what field or discipline.
