About a year ago, my dear teacher and friend Erin Maile O’Keefe from Circus Yoga – brought some roll on glitter to our level 1 training.. She encouraged us to put it on and PLAY.
Ihave been spending the past few years learning more about my interests, reflection on JOY and magic in my day to day life.. So, adding a little glitter on Friday night seemed to just fit right in! Shortly after the training, my own bottle of roll on glitter arrived. I started keeping it in my purse and in my car and putting on before I went out… then what happened? I started wearing it more regularly.. and instead of just for a special class or a kids class or an event.. I started putting it on in the morning- before drop off- before adult classes.. before grocery shopping.
Here’s what I noticed.. I got lots of questions and smiles when people saw glitter at 8am! I also started sharing it with others and buying in bulk so I could spread the magic.. Wearing glitter makes me happy. It’s a VERY small and insignificant way that I bring joy to my life! I recently had a tough day and when I was cleaning up after- I very slowly and mindfully applied my new soft, smooth glitter. It made me smile, it gave me a little light- that I so needed.
Glitter will not take away pain or suffering or make your life easier but it WILL shed a bit of light, a bit of magic into your day to day.
WHAT ARE LITTLE THINGS YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSELF TO MAKE YOURSELF JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE HAPPY?
STAY TUNED for lilomm glitter line.. coming soon in 2015.
