New Ideas may equal a New You

Sunday, April 28, 2013

The intelligent man is always open to new ideas. In fact he looks for them." Proverbs 18:15 TLB

Due to the weather ,financial situations , stress ,and low energy I have been in a rut lately. I have been barely getting by. Some of you know the routine work, sleep, minimal housework ,and work and sleep again. My workouts and my happiness were lacking.

I had asked my husband to buy me some perfume for Christmas . I had been using the same brand that I bought and loved before we were dating Oscar De la Renta. I have used it for 25 years. Since then I have bought a few other scents from Victoria Secret but they are too fruity and overpowering to me.

I have been testing and trying perfumes all along and not liking any. Until I smelled Lady Gaga"s Fame and fell in LOVE. I did not receive Fame for Christmas. I asked again for my birthday and although my husband gave the money to my daughter to buy it for me Macy's was sold out.

Well last Saturday I had an idea went to Macy's and asked again . They ordered it for me and said it would take a couple days . After waiting a week it arrived yesterday. Yeah!!!. I tried it on the moment I got it. I am telling you that this scent has a special power.

Not only does this perfume smell incredible it is not overpowering . The best thing about it is that it was made for and by Lady Gaga. Many of you know her . She is incredibly fit . She is smart and has fashion sense. She is never afraid of being her. She loves everyone just the way they are. She is an incredible singer ,songwriter ,icon and a special beautiful lady.

From this bottle of perfume came great ideas from me. I need to eat even better than I do now. I need to get more exercises in . I need to get this body fit and toned. I may take that kickboxing class at the gym that I have been afraid to try. You see Lady Gaga is unafraid so why should I be . I need to stop dressing like a frump and try to find more fashion sense. I need to own my clothes, rock an outfit not just wear one. I need to freshen and update my house my car ,my life.

Right now my house and clothes and car tells everyone that I have low self esteem .That I am a nobody , that I just blend in to get by. But I have ideas and I want to change that. I want to be me, to shine bright , to be a leader not a follower to be important to stand out, and not hide. I have the power it is in me. I have to unleash it.

Of course this will take time .I am looking for new ideas to make my house ,car and especially me shine. If any of you out there feel plain and drab. I suggest you look for new ideas to reinvent yourself.

Get up every morning with a smile on your face, cherish the happy times in your life. Find new and interesting ways and things to make you shine Be you, strong and brave and lovely. You are no better or worse than anyone else. Put your best foot forward. Be the you you always wanted to be. I will be looking to hear from you and your new ideas and adventures to make you shine brighter than a superstar. Always remember that" YOU WERE BORN THIS WAY" . Now let's Go together and rock our worlds.

    You will NEVER be a nobody! Your blogs are great and you are a very special person! I am glad you found a perfume you like and that it has inspired you. I don't wear perfume, but now you've really got me wondering what Fame smells like! lol For new ideas on home decor, etc, Pinterest is a good place to look. But beware, it can be addictive once you get started! emoticon

    LOL I too need that perfume!!! lol
    I wish I had fashion sense mostly. I can decorate my house and garden but with my clothes I always feel frumpy or not done or my hair is a mess etc.
    Oh well going to get dil to cut my hair again not happy having to pin it back all the time. And as for new clothes right now my money needs to go to new socks, bras, and sandals.
