I went for my makeover on Friday. It did end up being fun, but it definitely was an exposure. Shortly after arriving for my makeover, the cosmetologist had me sit and wait for her while she gathered up the necessary cosmetics. I soon realized that she was grabbing all the makeup "testers" that were sitting on the counters in front of each item. Meaning, these were items that any customer could touch and sample for themselves - eye shadow, blush, face powder, eye liner [though she sanitized the eye liner with a special liquid] - you get the idea. I'm fairly certain that there are plenty of people that touch these items with their bare hands. Many times, I've seen young school girls in these stores playing around with makeup. So . . . that was not a fun discovery. But you know what? It's ok. I let her do the makeover and I was just fine. In fact, she did a "night-time" party look and I rather liked it. Could I catch something from this makeover? Yep, I sure could. Am I going to worry about it? No. I am making a firm decision to let this go and live with the uncertainty. Sometimes I can do this, and sometimes I can't. Right now, I can, so I will.
Why "71º & Sunny?"
I consider 71º to be the perfect temperature. Not too cold and not too hot. I also love perfect sunny days. The vast majority of days are not 71º & Sunny and yet, all days were created by God's hand and they are still gifts, even if they don't fit my ridiculous definition of perfection. My struggle with OCD has at times imprisoned me in an impossible attempt to achieve perfection. I'm now learning to love all kinds of days that don't even come close to 71º & Sunny.
Please leave me a comment below. I really want to know what you are thinking!
