Thoughts From the Coffee Table: This seems like the perfect time to learn to apply my magnetic eyelashes.
I have this dream that I am able to add glamorous dark (fake) eyelashes every time before I go on stage or have a media appearance. And it always turns out the same.
Why? Because applying them takes practice. And I never practice. So when I try, it is always the last minute while I am rushed and stressed.
I pulled out the lashes this morning, thinking that this might be a good use of the extra time we all have right now. I mean, I even have time to exercise every day!
My first attempt to pull the lashes off their posts resulted in an immediate attraction…..resulting in a sort of Charlie Chaplin montage.
So I threw them away.
How many times do we hold on to something thinking that “One day, when I have the time, I will do it”?
Looking at these lashes I realized that I never miss them. And holding on to them made me feel like there was unfinished business.
While we begin day one of Shelter in Place in Philly, I realize that this is a great time to de-clutter, both physical and emotional items that do not serve me.
What does not propel us further, only holds us back.
I know this extra time won’t last forever. It will be gone in a blink of an eye.
