For My Glitter Guru, Mary the Marvelous
I learned at an early age to laugh at myself. I was the youngest and the only girl. Do the horrifying math, it was do or die!
I'm funny, even if it's only me cracking myself up.
I make a mean pirate. Observe my pirate hat carefully. See? I can be funny.
I practice non judgment. If anyone criticize you, it has nothing to do with you. It's a judgement they are making about themselves. It's worth the practice it to accept that. It sure feels personal! Sometimes it's just easier to react with hurt or anger. Read The Four Agreements by Miguel Ruiz. It helped me so much!
I practice non attachment. I love being surrounded by brilliant colorful art. If we had to sell everything and move to a one room apartment, I would paint a wall, find or make colorful art to fit the space.
I like my smile. This is humongous for me. I have always hated my smile. I have thin lips that turn down at the corners when my face is relaxed. Yes, I've been asked many times why I am frowning. When I smile it looks like a straight line with no lips. How did I over come this smile loathing? I worked for three years with Cool2Craft making craft video tutorials. Tiffany Windsor saw something in me that she thought was worth mentoring. Passion for creativity. I always reviewed my footage before I sent it to her and I found, as I became more relaxed. that I was giving birth to my whimsical mojo. My smiles were genuine and spontaneous. Thank you, Tiffany.
And thank you, Mary England , you amazing source of glittery happiness!
