Sometimes, it can be fun to focus on the shallow. The silly. The superficial.
I haven’t done that in a while.
I saw the prettiest manicure on Pinterest a while ago. I wanted to try it, except with my lifestyle I knew this mint glitter combo would chip and become a mess within an hour.
So I decided to turn it darker and put it on my toes, which don’t get as beat up by wear and tear. I actually went out and got a pedicure (I KNOW!) and asked for a kelly green, punctuated by emerald green sparkles. OPI provided both.
And now, every time I look at my feet I smile. And feel a secret happiness born of non-intellectual rigor and pure old-fashioned self-love.
We also made S’mores tonight.
And I got a report that the moles I had removed were benign. Today, I am reminded how lucky I really am. I am so thankful.
Summer is here.
