I’ve been thinking about this topic for awhile. I had cancer and tried to stay positive throughout the battle against the disease, my body,and my attitude. I admit it got tougher each time the cancer came back. People called me strong, courageous, etc., but in my mind I did what I had to do because I didn’t really have a choice in the matter. What is real strength? To me, it takes strength to keep your mouth shut when what you say could be hurtful, it takes strength to tell people you’re sorry, to swallow your pride and forgive, and even more strength and courage to tell someone you love them. All of these are instances where you lay your heart on the line whether the feelings are reciprocated or not, all can be overwhelming for the recipient and all can be life changing for both. This is the human condition. We are made for relationships. Words are powerful and this kind of strength can take some practice. Life is short, start now.

Today I wear Tom Ford lipstick in Casablanca. These lipsticks are ultra luxurious (expensive too). This is a gorgeous pinky brown color that’s both moisturizing and full of color. I chose it because I bought it in Paris and the movie was full of words unspoken….today’s the day. Here’s looking at you kid…..
