So me and my two creative bff’s just returned from the Innovate conference at Grainger Community Church. We went to a breakout group on blogging. It was great!! It was lead by Kem Meyer www.kemmeyer.com and I’ve been dying to get home and start a blog!
So while we’re in there, I’m talking to my friends and telling them my happiness story. They said, “…that’s blogworthy and it should be your first entry…” So. Here it is.
A couple of years ago, I did a photo shot of a woman and I couldn’t believe how well her lipstick stayed on and looked so perfect. First, let me start by saying I’m NOT a makeup person. But on occasion when I wear it, I usually just wear lipstick. So I asked her what brand it was and she replied it was made by Bed Head.
So I went to the store and found the perfect color called ‘happiness’. Well, as we all know, happiness doesn’t last forever so I went to the store to buy some more happiness. When I got there, I looked all over for happiness. Instead I found hope, love, passion, and even gossip, humor, peace and some others. But all I really wanted was some happiness.
I went up to the counter and asked if they were out of happiness. The girl told me that if it’s not out there, that happiness was more than likely discontinued. Seriously! Was she kidding? So I said, “Let me get this straight. Happiness has been discontinued? And what do they replace it with? Unhappiness? Sadness?” So I left the store believing that happiness was gone.
A few days later I stopped at another makeup store. Which by the way is torchure for me. I’d rather have a root canal or something. So I stopped in and asked for happiness. They had a bunch of it! It had not been discontinued. Yeah!
So I guess you just have to know where to look to find happiness. And if you’re not finding it, then look somewhere else. And keep looking. It’s out there. It has not been discontinued. ~
