It's Tax Day in the U.S.! For some of us, filing our taxes is a relief - being finished on time feels great. However, it can also be a stressful time: lots of paperwork, transactions to sort and categorize, receipts to file, accountants, tax preparers, and even just hoping you didn't make a simple math or data entry error!
Blue Lace Agate
Calming, soothing, cooling: if you're feeling on edge, try some blue lace agate to help you relax - even just a bit. Remember that calmer minds usually prevail: when we're too stressed, we can't make the best decisions. Try holding some blue lace agate, taking a few deep breaths, maybe screaming for a sec or going for a walk, if you need to get let out some emotions - and then evaluating what to do next.
Blue lace agate is also said to be helpful with confidence in speaking, finding your voice, and knowing what to say and what to hold back. So if you do need to have a conversation with an accountant or bookkeeper, spend some time before your convo with your blue lace agate - and keep it close, while you are talking with them.
