I’ve been noticing more calluses on my hands these days. Now, some people might think that was nasty and hate it. But, for me, it reminds me that my loving parents taught my siblings and I to work hard. I am SO grateful to them for that!
Yes, I do love to get glammed up and whatnot, but it’s also exciting to get sweaty and dirty doing hard work. 🙂
For example, for the past few days, I’ve been pulling weeds in our backyard. Now, these are no normal weeds. Some are taller than me. Seriously. Haha. I sweat like no other while I’m out there, and get dirt all over my face and body. Not a flattering image. Sometimes I’ll just kinda squat and pull the weeds, but other times I’ll just sit there in dirt — which is filled with earwigs and other nasty bugs crawling all over (which I hate).
Anyway, I don’t know why I’m posting all this. I guess it just got me thinking, cause the other night I watched a reality TV show of some women I’ve seen on Instagram and whatnot. I’ve always felt REALLY, REALLY jealous of them – their physical appearance, their opportunities in life, etc. After the first episode (actually after the first few minutes) of this show, I was like “HOOOOOLY COW. Please, NEVER be like them.” They were just overall very rude, catty women who find all their happiness in possessions, wealth, and fame. But to be honest, I don’t know that any of them are truly happy.
I guess what I’m trying to say is….I’m glad I’m the kind of girl who can get glammed up AND sit in the dirt with sweat dripping from my face.
That’s all! Love you all. Peace n blessingzzz.
