Work wise, I've had a little bit of a blow this week. I've been busy and busy is good! But I (with my overly trusting heart and soul) felt a little bit of a sting with a fellow blogger as she did a very subtle dagger in the back kind of thing. 'Here...let me help you walk the plank...I'll show you how!' I don't know why I always fall for it, but I do. I won't change because I am who I am. I'll trust everyone...always...and the knives in the back will continue to hurt. So where did I find my sparkles this week other than the obvious places...my husband and kids? In the silliest places of all of course!
I had a nice weekend with my family. I took quite a bit of time off which is not typical for me. They make me happy...they make me sparkle. But it was Sunday evening and time to get caught up. I wasn't terribly motivated but as I sat down, I realized that no one will ever dull my sparkles because they are there no matter what I do. I pulled out my initial supplies and everything sparkled. I smiled.
Then as I sat down and pulled out the rest of my supplies for this evening's work, I actually laughed out loud. I had 2 freshly sharpened sparkle pencils (one for each eye...inside joke), I had 2 sparkle pens ready (one in Barbie Pink, one in Tinkerbell Green), and a couple of sparkly notebooks. Yes, life is good and no matter what...I'm happy and I sparkle! I had to smile! I have a good life!
Sparkle On! Forget about the crappy people in life. You can't change them but you never have to let them dull your sparkle!
