This is Peanut Butter Brickle. When was the last time that you got all dressed up?
I can’t remember the last time I felt sparkly.
It doesn’t take much time for me to clean up. I don’t even wear pants. Digby doesn’t either. But being able to sparkle is important. For all of us.
There are many things that happen in the world that are sad. And we could fill our heart with bad news all day. Like an overflowing bucket of bad. But eventually, that takes away our sparkle. It makes us dull. It makes us feel less than what we can be. And there’s no reason for that. There is reason to sparkle.
We want to help others. But we can only help others after we help ourself to feel better. And even if we are faking it and at least putting forth an effort, we will start to remember that we ourselves are important. We are important to take care of. To shine. To sparkle! That means you.
So clean up today.
Dress up. Or treat yourself to a nap. Whatever makes you sparkle and feel new again, do it. Try a little every day.
And see how you make the world sparkle around you!
