Some days a girl just needs bright red toenails! Every single time you glance down you get a little smirk on your face. You are happy you chose fierce RED. Or saucy RED. Or sassy RED. I just adore the idea that my friend painted her toes red in honor of her friend feeling a bit low. Then told her about it. To share the love and goodness and pure joy.
Today, I have a friend in bed with a serious neck injury. Knowing full well she is unable to bend over to paint hers, I painted mine “Big Apple Red” opi with a top coat of sparkles to cheer her up, and me. Every time I look at them, I will send up a little get well prayer for her.
Wait, hold on! I have another friend with a wrist issue. Oh, and I have a friend with strep throat and two ear infections. I have a friend with vertigo. I have a friend going through a marriage change. Today, my sister-in-law has a horrid head cold. Mr. Right is battling the flu bug. Looks like I am going to be sending out positive RED sparkle karma to lots of friends. Good thing I have 10 toes!
I fully realize that it is not super creative, painting ones tootsies, however, it feels like I am actually doing something positive. Even if it seems small, the small things count and add up. everything positive counts.
A friend shared this idea with me and I am going to meditate on it all day long: “I’m crowding out sadness (sickness) by filling my days and filling my focus on creativity.” She brings out the best in me. Sparkle on smart lady, sparkle on!
ps. doesn’t hurt that Mr. Right loves a girl with a sassy pedicure 🙂
