Optimism and Courage...

Hey Guys! So, I told you I had a story for you. Well, it's more like a message I wanted to share with all of you.

It starts like this; I met a lady the other day and she shared with me that she had cancer. She  told me she had just finished recieving chemo and had no hair, no eyebrows, no eyelashes. She came to me to do her eye makeup, and put on false eyelashes.

The first thing I noticed about this woman was her chipperness. She was so happy, and kind, and on a day that I felt a little down myself, she cheered ME up. She was so friendly and warm. In no way did the absense of her hair, or her illness seem to affect her.

Long story short, we chatted while I did her makeup. When she looked in the mirror , she started getting tears in her eyes and just said, "you are amazing." I said back to her " YOU are amazing." I told her how much I appreciated her sharing her story with me and how her attitude and positivity affected me that day.

 She said her husband would look at her in awe and that she felt so amazing and beautiful. She told me I made her day...and I told her that SHE MADE MINE.

 It was truly meant to be that I met her that day. Because, I needed a reminder to be thankful for all the things I have and the blessings in my life. I needed a reminder not to let the little things get me down . She was a blessing.

That is what I wanted to share with all of you. A really optimistic attitude full of positivity can really make an impact on someone. Always be thankful for what you have , your eyebrows, your eyelashes , your hair... etc. Don't let the little things weigh you down.


I also wanted to share with you guys my new jewlery organizer. A Bulletin Board!!!

Sorry, Bear's tail got in the photo. But, this will be a much more sufficient way of storing my jewlery ...plus it'll make me remember what I have!
