Tiaras, daisies, and glitter

Those are three things that make me happy, but that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. Most days my tiara is a little crooked, but that’s okay. On those days, I’m reminded to stand up straight to keep it from slipping further. Next up are daisies. They are such a happy flower, wouldn’t you agree? They, too, stand up straight and I can’t help but smile when I see them. Lastly, glitter. Glitter isn’t something I allow in the house very often. Because glitter. However, on my journey through life, I strive to leave a little sparkle wherever I go in hopes of someone getting caught in my wake and have it help them if only for a minute.

I’ve been working trying to figure out my purpose and my why for quite sometime. Just when I think I have it figured out, WHAM! It’s messed up again. Or at least I think I have it figured out. I never thought my purpose and my why would be so fluid and I struggle with that. Or maybe I missed the mark completely and it was wishful thinking.

There are so many days I feel like a fraud and I throw shade with “what you see is what you get.” There’s some truth to that. People get what I want them to see, which is the happy, helpful, joyful me. But many days I’m crumbling on the inside. And my tiara is not only crooked, but it’s tarnished. Let’s get it straightened and sparkling. Let’s make the inner me as joyful as the facade.
