Recently I heard the phrase – ‘…do what makes your eyes sparkle’. I can picture a content face, a smirk and the laugh lines around sparkling eyes.
It was such a vivid image I wanted it to stay. How can I have that feeling all the time?
Eyes don’t sparkle while watching tv – unless you are laughing. Eyes don’t sparkle when you are commuting in your car – unless you have friend driving and you are telling he how cool your weekend will be. Eyes don’t sparkle when you are stressed and concentrating – until the magical solution comes together.
How can I see these opportunities all the time. At least everyday – I know they are there. Last night my eyes sparkled at freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Today, when I finished my run I felt light and loose, but I don’t think I was sparkling.
So here is my challenge to myself. I will find one thing everyday that sparkles and I will smile, and I will write it down. 7 days, 7 diamonds. I will report back.
