Don’t take the bait
A few years ago I created the necklace above out of a fishing lure.
I was struggling with the complexity of the corporate environment and I found that I was often getting triggered by circumstances.
Sometimes I didn’t handle the situation well, and my reaction ended up creating more drama than the original circumstance.
I so desperately wanted to do better; I didn’t wholly understand that my thoughts were creating my results.
Previously, I heard about the concept of creating an anchor or a way to remind myself throughout the day of how I wanted to respond.
I wanted to come from a place of creating my results versus being in reaction to someone or something else.
So I created these necklaces as a reminder to “Don’t take the bait.”
They worked like a charm and also became a whimsical point of discussion.

Anyway, today my anchors can be a lock screen photo, an alarm on my phone, or a task my calendar.
It’s anything to help me to stay my course and not fish upstream.
It’s a reminder that if I am getting triggered, I need to investigate my thoughts and see how they are creating my feelings and results.
Don’t take the bait.
