We all have bad days or challenges that hit us. When we overcome those challenges, and beat those bad days, we have a chance to sparkle. Those are sparkling truth moments.
Flashlights drive the darkness away (and make blanket forts more fun).
When Katarina was little, we were hit by a huge hurricane. It took more than a month for power to be restored to our house. That is a lot of very quiet, dark nights, made spookier by having the windows open to let in a breeze.
The worst part of the day was when darkness fell - watching the darkness slowly suck out all of the light.
On nights when my husband was away, I had to think of something to counteract the spooky darkness for Katarina (and, let's be honest, for me, too). I made a huge blanket fort in the living room. We took snacks, stuffed animals, and all the flashlights in there with us before darkness started to fall outside.
When bedtime came, Katarina didn't feel so bad leaving the tent for a comfy bed in a dark room. We sparkled our way through the falling dark with flashlights and shadow puppets.
Nail polish changes a bad day (and it is always better when it sparkles).
There are days that call for a change. Something that feels like a fresh start, even if it is only a little thing. Major haircuts or new outfits are both go-to choices when that kind of change is needed. But I have found that the haircuts never seem to work out just right, and those new outfits always seem more expensive when they are bought on a bad day.
When I am looking for a change, I sit on my comfortable bed with a good movie playing, and paint my nails - a wildly bright color, a few polka dots, and a coat of sparkles. That is the right kind of change for me, and I can't help but smile when I look down at my toes. Even when they are covered up by socks and shoes, I know that sparkle is there with every step I take, and that is a good thing.
