Today, forget about what anyone else thinks and just be amazing.
Aren't we all just drifting into being amazing?
Even if it's dark and dismal in your neck of the woods, shine bright from the inside out. You will make yourself happier and you will certainly make everyone around you joyful too.
Here's to Sunday ~ cheers!

Yesterday, when I have pulled my cards in the morning, I pulled the "LIGHT" card from two separate decks. Then, this morning, the same two cards made an appearance.
As someone who interprets cards, I have to say, these two cards showing up two days in a row are a not so gentle reminder to "come into the light."
My internal light goes on and off. I am sure yours does too; it's what makes us human. Sometimes, we are filled with glorious amounts of self worth, happiness, joy, self love, the love of others and then, there are the other times where the light is flickering like a dying flashlight. It takes a reboot to get that light bright again.
I am going to imagine myself glowing a warm, healing light - from my inside out. I will shine from within.
I will then share that same light with anyone else who needs a little extra love and protection from inner and outer forces that dull our shine. Let's face it, we all need a little help glowing from time to time. Then, if you would be so kind, can you please share your light with me? Thanks! xo
So love the one you hold
And I will be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the light
Last night I was watching The Voice. I love this show. The coaches are kind to all the contestants. Naturally they want a member of their team to win, but they are so enamored of the talent that they really can't help but gush when it is deserving.
Usher is an awesome coach. He is so out of the box; he had one of his contestants, Michelle Chamuel, sing to herself in a mirror. She was decidedly not thrilled about this exercise. BUT, she did it so she could connect WITH HERSELF while singing a song that was one billion percent perfect for her. The song? "True Colors." She. Was. Awesome. She sparkled so brightly last night.
Last week I mentioned having the girls in my car rocking out to Adele's
"Rolling in the Deep." At one point, I popped open my glove compartment and handed Col a hairbrush. She knew exactly what to do with it. Her mic. She sang with an even greater enthusiasm than I thought was possible. I bet, like I did, and so many others did, she sang to herself in a mirror, hairbrush in hand, for hours on end as a little girl. All four of the girls in the car were sparkly. It was fantastic to witness.
TODAY, let's all be a little sparkly. Let's all shine on!

AMY UPDATE: Amy is doing very well. She wrote me that replacing the wound vac was THE single most painful experience in her life. This, from a woman who had four kids. It is getting changed again today. I suggested she ask for heavy pain killers. Please continue to keep Amy and her family in your thoughts, prayers and healings. She still has a long road ahead of her.
If you are in the position to help monetarily in ANY way (no amount is too small) please consider donating HERE. A giant shout-out to everyone who has contributed thus far. I would like to personally thank my NY friends and family who are giving so generously of their money and their hearts to a woman they know only from me. HUGE hugs & kisses.
