Every time I wear this dress and Daniel takes my picture he says (these were taken various occasions, which is why my hair keeps changing haha) “you look like a little Dutch girl or Milkmaid” Haha…ever since he said that, it’s the first thing that comes to mind when I put it on. I decided to do a milkmaid like hairstyle to go with it, and now I really do feel like I should be in Holland or the Netherlands (ohhhh how I would LOVE that!)
I’ve been trying to be more patient w/other people lately…particularly while out running errands. And today I gotta say it was pretty rewarding. I was passing one of those kiosks where these women from Hungary (I learned today) sell these lotions and scrubs etc. I usually rush by them without making eye contact…and I was doing the same today, then one of the ladies tried to hand me a sample. I thought how discouraging it must get day after day trying to get people to acknowledge you….So I took her sample, but then she kept talking “uh oh, I’ve been caught!” I let her talk a bit longer thinking of what I would say next to just leave…then i thought, “I don’t really need to be anywhere, I’m not in a hurry, I can at least let her give her spill and feel like she accomplished something today 🙂 ” So I just chilled out a bit, and it ended up being an uplifting thing. I mean the two ladies complimented my hair, told me I was pretty haha, they thought I was from Russia (which I’m cool with, I think Russians are gorgeous). So anyway, I’m learning to take a minute to think if I really am in a hurry before I start acting like it thus stressing myself out.
Enjoy your day y’all!!!
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
