My cute friend Aleisha from Call Me Mama Leisha is here visiting us today!
I love this lady AND believe me she’s amazing… Leave a Trail of Glitter is exactly what she does.
It would come as no surprise to the people in my life if I were to join Makeup Anonymous and proclaim, “Hi! My name is Aleisha. And I am a makeup junkie!” I seriously love the stuff! I believe heaven on earth can be found in Sephora. I love it there–the pervasive smell of perfume in the air, the black and white stripes, the rows and rows of eyeshadows and eyeliners. I rarely leave that magical place without a new lip gloss or nail polish! (I need help. I need an intervention!)
A couple of Christmases ago, Sephora launched the coolest ad campaign that consisted of funky, artistic photos of their various products, with catchy slogans to match. I fell in love with one ad in particular. It was for a gold eyeshadow.
It said, “She who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten.”
Isn’t that fantastic?! That “slogan” left such an impression on me, and I found myself thinking of it often. I decided to make it my personal mantra; to leave a trail of glitter (aka “goodness”) wherever I went.
Readers and Friends: Don’t be afraid to leave a figurative trail of glitter wherever YOU go. Meaning, let your light shine. Smile. Sparkle. Be positive. Laugh often. Be kind. Look for the good in the world around you. (It’s there! You’ll find it!) Have a grateful heart and rejoice in all your blessings. Sing. Dance. Serve others. Celebrate the little things–a cold Diet Coke, a hug from a friend, springtime flower buds, etc. Leave people and places better than you found them.
DAZZLE the people around you! Just be you. Know that you
are beautiful and strong and WORTHWHILE. This knowledge can create a
more joyful life. In her book, “Women Create,” Dr. Hilda Ruch wrote, “Women’s voices
are crucial. Women affect history. Daughters, mothers, and wives
influence families, communities, nations, and the world.” She is
talking about YOU.
So leave some glitter and affect history!
I’ll be doing it once my nails are dry.
