So WHAT you might ask does that have to do with a fingernail?? If you want to really know what the whole summer fingernail thing is about you need to message me or something. I am guessing the majority of you who actually want to know, already do! It is weird and slightly embarrassing, sort of, but I don't care. It is just me.
Among other things, my summer fingernail occurs at a time when my hands are not constantly in water and art supplies, so it, along with the rest, get a chance to actually grow out. That does not happen for the rest of the year. It is a fun to paint it up and make it look snazzy. It was looking a little tattered and natty, as was my mood last week. Monday, I took the time, under strict orders from my dear friend Jane, to repaint and decorate my summer fingernail as a transition into birthday month and definitely as reminder to find my joy each and every day during the month of July. I did paint it on July 1 and though I hadn't blogged about it until today, I am glad that I got my transition out of the way on July 1 and the rest of this fair month has been pretty rocking awesome. As a matter of fact, July 3 was stellar! And July 4 is turning out to be pretty good too. AND thank you from the bottom of my heart for the birthday month wishes, by the way....
|STEP 1: Remove all traces|
|STEP 2: Begin to decide on what to decorate your nail with.... decisions, decisions|
|Start with a base color|
|End up with something that looks much more patriotic than you intended!|
|A little more cleaned up and tidy!|
SO, here is to an improved attitude and outlook. Turns out I won't actually implode if I can't exercise for a couple days. WHO KNEW!? AND it is a great feeling to be done with those orders hanging over my head. NOW, I need to order a few things for my trip at the end of the month. I don't think that I will be putting that off for quite so long!!
Sometimes we need a little help finding our joys!
