I celebrate my birthday for the whole month of September.
...because I'm worth it.
Basically that means that I wear Pink every day and make time for myself doing things I enjoy... without guilt.
Things like reading and sewing. Maybe a movie. Like American Dreamer.
C'mon Rebecca be brilliant. I want to go to Paris!
It's a writer movie.
I might watch some Capra. He rocks.
So... the Pink every day makes me feel feminine. I like feeling feminine.
I grew up around boys. I was never much of a Tomboy but I was alone. My brothers would play Barbies with me, they with their full-size G.I. Joes, but it was not my kind of playing. They wanted to shoot each other and take Barbie hostage, that kind of thing.
They were definitely boys.
I never felt pretty growing up. I had buck teeth and crazy hair. It's naturally curly but not in a good way. Not like Charles Schulz “Frieda” who always looked styled.
My brothers did not help. They called me, “Four-eyed, brace faced big hunk of lard.”
I know I grew out of that phase but it took me a long time to get over it.
When I met Superman the very first thing he said to me on our very first date was,
Yeah. I was a goner.
Even after five babies (pregnancy weight and all) and multiple colors of hair and identity crises galore, he still thinks I'm beautiful.
But really, I think I'm beautiful. He doesn't have to say it, I just know.
Isn't that wonderful?
I wish every woman felt that way. I say that all the time. It's true though. I want every woman to feel beautiful. It's a wonderful feeling! And...
Truth Is, You Are Beautiful!
One of the things I want to start, or go back to, if you will, is my Mary Kay business. My consultant status ran out because I had not placed an order in over a year but now I want to restart it, for several reasons.
- I use the product. I love the product. They are coming out with new stuff all the time that is AMAZING! I want it.
- I want to teach others how to use it to feel beautiful. I learned how to apply my make-up using brushes and it's awesome. I want others to learn this skill. It makes make-up fun! I get to “play” with color every day. My face is my canvas!
- Surprise to me but Mary Kay is recommended for people who have Fibromyalgia. Really! Cool right?
- I don't want to pay full price and I am offering discounts to anyone who wants to buy from me.
- It's a good business model, but really I want to sell it mostly so I can teach the brush techniques.
So stay tuned to find out more about my Mary Kay Adventures!
I have to make some money first... it takes money to make money you know.
Finally... here is my Pinkness for today...
Have a beautiful Tuesday!
