I had a spa day recently with treatments which I enjoyed. During a facial and massage. I said I had a dry skin? The answer was "Drink more water."
At a manicure I asked about my brittle nails, the answer was "drink more water!".
I had make up done, where I mentioned bags under my eyes .Yes you guessed it.
"Drink more water."
I thought I do drink a lot of water.
But I hadn't actually measured what I consumed.
I am doing so now. I use a pretty tall poppy decorated glass just for water. It stands out from other plain glasses so its my reminder. See the Poppy glass, use it to drink water.
Its a magic remedy!

I do feel overwhelmed at times as I try to do so many things and be all things to all people. I am looking at it now that it is ok to say No.
Is it selfishness? No it's self preservation. There is a limit to my time and energy.
I was asked to help serve on a charity sale. I found myself saying Sorry NO. but I will contribute towards it
Asked would I join a new team on Sparks. I answered sorry I cant, but I am happy to be her friend and wished her team good luck.
Again, it was sorry NO I cant be a team leader at this time, BUT I do try to be a good team member
Once the NO has been said firmly, with an added BUT.... It is accepted with no hard feelings and I don't feel as bad about refusing.
Can you say No? Irene

I was told by a Sparks friend she thinks I am cute.This surprised me. Cute to me is something small and cuddly, a small child? Or has it a wider meaning? I think its good to be cute? Is it flattering to be so named?
What would I like to be called? Inspiring? Motivating? Special? Fantastic? Yes all of those and more. What would you like to be called?
I grew up with a dreadful inferior complex. In my family no one ever got praised or told they had done something good. So I assumed I never did anything worth praising.
Now at my advanced age I know I have done good things and a few not so good. Just normal.
I am all things to all people a wife, a mother, a grandmother an aunt, a friend and many more.
Do they all see me diffently? Does anyone think I am cute? I must look up the exact meaning of the word now.
