Hello, I’m Tricia!
Who Is Tricia?
Tricia is a stay-home Mom to two amazing two-legged kids, a rescued fur-kid and a husband of over 20 years.
I love researching and learning new things and sharing what I learn. For as long as I can remember I’ve had a fascination of all things Greek. Then one day I ran across this wonderful little thing called Komboloi, or worry beads. I started learning about them and their long history and realized that this was something special and could bring a lot of comfort to a lot of people in our stressed-out world. So I set up this site and hope to share the beauty of Komboloi.
Why Do I Want To Do This?
Every time I look around I see a lot of stressed-out people. Our world is filled with constant stress, negativity and toxic and artificial everythings. Many people spend a lot of time and money jumping at the latest fad or newly discovered drug in an effort to find some peace. Then I look at videos with people sitting and playing with their Komboloi…pouring their stress into the beads and allowing the sensations to help them unwind. Sometimes they use them as a meditation tool while they think through their problems as well.
Then I thought that maybe for some people it can be that easy. Maybe just playing with a simple string of beautiful beads, or other fidget toy or reading a fun post can help. If so, I’d like to be able to help…and maybe bring a little awareness of a little tool that’s been used for millenia.
What Is The Point Of This Site?
I hope that you will come away from this site with a better understanding of this ancient tool and maybe inspire you to give it a try yourself or just enjoyed a few minutes of getting away from it all with an interesting and fun read.
If you have any questions or have a story to share about Komboloi (I love stories) or just want to say “hi”, please leave a comment below.
