How did I miss this?
As I was reading through some old comments, (which I do for fun, it always rolls my socks up and down to read your thoughts about what I do) I came across a comment from Laura Neiman in 2015. She wrote, “This story made my night!”, and included this link called:
Wait! What? Wow!?!!?? Seriously? It’s exactly what I dream of.
You see, each time I finish an article, right before I push the publish button, I take a few minutes, close my eyes and imagine that this piece, somewhere, somehow will be a blessing or an inspiration on someone in someway.
Like when you change locations on Google Earth and out it zooms and you feel as though you’re being hurtled into space, all the while watching everything get farther away and then just as fast, you’re zipping back down to earth to your new location.
Yah, it’s like that.
I picture my article speeding up above the earth, hovering about until it sees someone who happens to need it, then diving back down (doing a backflip or two on the way just for fun) until it lands on that person who happens to need it.
Who knew that one of my first articles about making Smittens from February 2012 would change someone’s life? Who knew that making mittens would help someone overcome depression and anxiety and start their own company.
As Laura said, it’s the greatest feedback ever, to know that you, even indirectly, helped change somebody’s life.
So cool! Thank you Laura for sharing it.
Well, here’s to hoping that this article might be just as inspiring to someone, somewhere.
Even your skincare routine can join the zero waste movement with these cute and cheerful reusable makeup remover pads. Instead of making them with a plain old towel, find a decorative one with terry cloth on one side, and a delightful design to match your bathroom decor on the other side. When you’re finished using them, just throw them in the wash with your regular towels and use them over and over again.
