And with today's post, I put together a summary/surprise to end my trip of all trips.
Get Ready on the Inside
How much time do spend getting ready each day? Today, use the same amount of time to get ready on the inside. Meditate, write in your journal, or perform an act of service.
Good thing the challenge people explain the "why" of this one to me. Apparently women spend thousands of hours on their appearances over a lifetime.
Uh, they do? This one is easy for me.
Take yesterday. I only showered. 10 minutes at 10:00 at night. No make up. No hair drying...nothing. Now that's not everyday but I'd say the most time I spend on myself is once a week I take 45 minutes to get ready. My average is about 20-30.
So, I'm supposed to spend more time then that on meditating, journaling or service?
I think I can handle this one. I spent more time on the stinkin' blog, then I do on my looks.
But it does make me think. Maybe I don't care enough about my appearance and that is why I get down on myself? Hmmmm....I'll think on that some more.
But I do have something beautiful that I want to share. I made a summary video of some pictures I took of my trip to Italy. I know, I know...get over it...this Italy trip. I'm just trying to hold on to every last shred of memory...it gets me through to the next adventure.
And just to show my appreciation for those who took the time to read my posts, I'm offering a gift.
I'm giving this away in a drawing:
It's a hand crafted brown leather bracelet made in a monastery of the Chiesa di Santa Croce in the Scuola del Cuoio, inscribed with the words, "Scuola del Cuoio FIRENZE". Made in Florence, Italy. It's a sweet trinket, not fancy but something I lovingly packed home with me and that I want to share.
So, here's the gig:
You must leave a comment. (Duh). But your comment must include, the title of your favorite post on my blog about my trip to Italy. Easy peasy.
That's how you will get entered.
And I think I'm going to end this drawing Wednesday, Oct. 20th at 7:00 am.
It's a one shot deal.
And I'm guessing your chances of winning will be large. I don't get many comments about Italy, generally.
So, with that I leave my tribute to Italy...in video.
Set to the music, Attraversiamo from the movie; Eat, Pray, Love...of which I have not seen but loved this music from and thought it was appropriate. I read the book on the plane on the way to Italy.
Enlarge this and turn up the volume and fill your home and thoughts with good things.
Arrivederci...which means..."till we meet again...farewell".
