This is one of my favourite pearls from my mom which is why I wanted to share it first. 3 words: Lipstick and Earrings. They may or may not mean much to you other than just objects that you have seen or used, but to my mom it was her answer to many of life’s little troubles.
My mom has always been great at giving me advice and helping me navigate rocky shores and lipstick and earrings has been a consistent pearl of wisdom throughout my life. This is how to use this pearl:
A boy breaks up with you: put on some lipstick and earrings and get back out there and show him what he is missing.
You get a bad grade on a test: put on some lipstick and earrings and study harder for the next one.
Someone says something negative about you: put on some lipstick and earrings and prove them wrong.
I guess you could say this is my mom’s way of saying “stay calm and carry on no matter what”. Put your best foot forward and don’t let anything get you down. This is the kind of attitude my mom has and I am doing my best to implement this in my own life.
One of the ways I have been trying to put my best foot forward these days: keeping my nails painted during the week. Check out my “how to” here.
