The good stuff isn't cheap...
I've been trying out some new makeup. Working at covering up some features while highlighting others.
You know what I mean.
I never really realized, until lately, that there is a makeup scale. Yes, I understood that there is a range of prices where makeup was concerned. However, I thought that was all about brands and brand names.
Not so. Price also represents quality.
When I go "full out" and wear a more expensive foundation, primer, blush, eyeshadow and liner, lip stick and liner, mascara - I could pass for a 20 year old/young, even though I'm 45. :0)
Just like I did today.
That got me thinking about what else I could cover up...
an abusive relationship
how I truly feel
the state of my finances
the depth (or lack thereof) of my faith
Do you know what I mean?
Can you relate?
Have you ever put your "expensive make-up face" on and stepped out of your house looking 20 instead of your real age? Looking rich instead of poor, happy instead of sad or hurt or defeated? Looking super spiritual instead of super phony?
My good make-up costs. It costs a choice between three lipstick colors or one. It costs the choice between do I do this, or purchase that. It costs.
But it's worth it.
Knowing we're rich, being happy instead of sad or hurt or defeated and living a Spirit filled life cost, too. But are all worth it.
Anything worthwhile has a cost attached.
Let me leave you with this: please spend more on your inner person... after all, I'm just going to wash my make-up off before bed, tonight.
