This is magic, like a dream come true! The summer issue of Stampington & Company Bella Grace magazine will be hitting the bookstores and news stands on June 1st and “My Pajama Day”, an article about taking a day for yourself, is in this issue. I am thrilled beyond words. Getting published in a magazine has been a dream of mine for years and now it has finally become real. How did this happen? The 3 P’s… patience, persistence, and perseverance.

Bella Grace - My Pajama Day

In my article I shared the story about my day for myself with readers and I shared my feelings that came up through the course of the day. This was not easy for me to do because I am a very private person living in this world where often too much is shared without much thought or self awareness. I firmly believe that you need to have some boundaries or circles of trust and thoughtfully choose who you share with and what you share. And you need to silence the noise in order to see inside of yourself rather than the reflection of others mirrored onto you like a shiny glass window.

Some of what I shared in the article was quite ordinary and some of my thoughts ran deep. The most important thing is that I shared the essence of who I am and what matters to me. I think of myself as an ordinary person living an ordinary life but I find magic in so many simple things and that makes me not so ordinary. And I share that with others… the smallest thing can make a big difference in someone else’s life. Be the first one to reach out, to take the first step, to say those 3 words “I love you.”

It is said that every cloud has a silver lining. A disappointment or failure paves the way for something better to come into your life. A broken heart can heal and open up again to someone who truly appreciates you for who you are.
