Today is my birthday!
April’s birthstone is the diamond, so I was born to sparkle!
I don’t consider myself a sparkly person. The main color in my closet is black. Sure, I like nice things, but I don’t consider myself a girly girl.
I do try to keep a positive, upbeat attitude. Even when I don’t feel like it. However, I have to say as I get older my patience is not what it used to be!
We are living during a strange, crazy time. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Give yourself a break. Be quick to forgive, life is short.
I wish every single one of you good health, safety, & patience. I hope you are finding moments of peace, please take the time to soak all of the good things in.
Maybe during these days of being quarantined, you are:
- Spending more time with your loved ones.
- Slowing your life down.
- Having more home-cooked meals and family conversation at the table.
- Perhaps you are able to work on some of those “when I have time” projects.
- Paying attention to the little things; the little details.
Regardless of which month you were born in, I believe we are all meant to sparkle in our own way. Our life’s story or journey – all of the ups & downs, the heartache, the love, loss and pain, laughter, chances you took; that is what makes you, you. That is your story. That is what makes you come alive! That is what makes you sparkle.
Wishing all of you a sparkly day!
