Well, I'm super-psyched because I offered to guest beauty blog a couple of days ago, and several people have already taken me up on it! I think I told you before that cosmetic buying/collecting, testing, and reviewing is my hobby (mostly on Makeup Alley and Viewpoints). I've also wanted to try my hand at beauty blogging without committing to having a beauty blog myself (it's actually a lot of work), and it just sort of fell right in my lap, so I'm considering it a green light from my Higher Power to go ahead. It's odd that I have no interest in formulating or selling cosmetics, or applying them to someone else (makeup artist), given my penchant for the other actions, but that's how it is. I started doing my thing with main-line cosmetics but have been totally won over by indie companies, starting with Aromaleigh (now closed unfortunately). I'll be sure to post links to my reviews her for my makeup-loving readers and to prove that I do other things besides ruminate on God and the Bible, tell you about my inner spiritual life and growth and track my food, LOL!
On the spiritual side, I'm going to leave you with AA's Third Step prayer for turning myself (yourself) over (tweaked a little bit to make it more powerful to me). I say it when I wake up, and I say it over and over again while I'm swimming laps at the YMCA:
"Lord, I offer myself to you today to do with me and build with me as you like. Relieve me of the burden of self that I might better do your will. Take away my difficulties that victory over them might bear witness to others of your power, your love, and your way of life. May I do your will always."
Doesn't that put things in perspective?
See you tomorrow!
