life is a choice

I wore my grouchy pants to school today. 
I was in a bbbaadddd mood. 
Now I wish I could go back & start my day over.
But since I can't- I guess ill just start now. 
By being in a better mood.
Life is a choice 
Im choosing to be happy... & not a grump. 


I went somewhere today & I was INSPIRED. My mind was racing with all the ideas I could take from it and make my own. I was dreaming up everything in my mind. I was imagining the way it all would be. I was wishing on the future. It made me hopeful & excited to see where these aspirations take me in life. 

Inspiration came easily today. 


Laurie & I decided to be adventurous and went to Yoga last night.

 & according to the instructor Angie-

I liked it and tried to take it seriously. 
But mostly we were a distraction. 

Better luck next time.. 

...& can I just tell you-
I've washed my hair 3 days in a row. This NEVER happens. I feel like I deserve a round of applause. 
The End. 

The Y

We did it, we hiked the Y. 
Its been on my list of things to do-
Check. I did it. 
& probably wont ever do it again. 
Its hard. & Im not a hiker. 
as you can see...

Believe in yourself. Believe in your capacity to do great and good things. Believe that no mountain is so high that you cannot climb it. Believe that no storm is so great that you cannot weather it. You are not destined to be a scrub. You are a child of god, of infinite capacity. Believe that you can do it- whatever it is that you set your heart on. Opportunities will unfold and open before you. The skies will clear when they have been dark with portent. 
- Gordon B. Hinkley

Read this.. seriously

At school one of our main focuses is being daymakers. Our name tags simply say our name and number followed by DAYMAKER. We not only have the opportunity to beautify them, but we also have the chance to touch their lives and make their day, and thats one of the reasons I love what I do. 

David Wager started this daymaking movement in the beauty industry the day he saved the life of one of his clients by simply making her day.

1988- I was working in the salon when one of my clients, who normally came in every five weeks like clockwork for a haircut, came into to have her hair styled for the evening. This was odd, since I had never seen her for a style in between appointments. I figured that she must have an important social engagement that evening. When she arrived, I inquired if that was indeed the case. She said, "No, I just really want to look and feel good today." So I gave her a great scalp massage and shampooed and styled her hair. During our thirty minutes together, we joked and laughed and had a great time. When I finished, she hugged me and smiled a great smile as we said goodbye. 
It was a few days later that Daymaking pierced my soul. I received a letter from this same woman, who was in the hospital. She explained that she had come in to have her hair styled because she was planning to commit suicide and wanted to look good for her funeral. She shared with me that she had such a great time during our appointment that she left the salon, went home, called her sister and asked her to take her to the hospital to get some help. She wanted to live. She went on to thank me just for being there and caring, without having any idea what she was going through. 
I often think how easy it would have been for me to have been pre-occupied that day and taken that appointment for granted, to not be there. It could have produced dramatically different results in both our lives. I thank her for the gift she gave me in that letter and that experience. It has truly shaped my life's work and me.
Now you can see the difference we can make in others' lives, whether it is something as profound as this or as simple as smiling at a stranger.

Life as a Daymaker
Pg: 12

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone tried a little harder to make someone else's day? I know that when I feel like I've made someone else's day, it in return makes my own. Its like killing two birds with one stone. 

I absolutely loved this book and would recommend that everyone should read it. 

Did you know??

Did you know that PANTENE PRO-V uses the same ingredient in their shampoo and conditioners thats in hardwood floor cleaner? Thats why it makes your hair so shinny. BUT, it leaves a nasty wax in your hair that comes off when slide cutting onto the scissors. GROSS. 

Trust me people. Its the Truth. I have witnessed it with my own 2 eyes. 

Please people, use professional hair products. Call me a hair snob if you please, I guess thats what beauty school does to you... turns you into a hair snob.
