Type-A folks aren’t fond of thinking they’ve wasted time doing anything.
When I heard the average woman spends 474 days of her life slapping on lipstick and lining her eyes *applying makeup*, I had to search for purpose in all that mirror time.
Here, then, is my version of life lessons I’ve learned from applying makeup.
- Scrub out impurities before they turn black.
- Moisture is the key to life.
- Always start with a good foundation.
- Rough handling will stretch you in ways you don’t want to go.
- Never expect a thin line from a dull pencil.
- Being too cheeky can backfire.
- Frowning messes up everything.
- Practice makes perfect.
- Too showy gives a false impression.
- Freshen up often.
- Inner beauty is the best makeup in the world.
My kids always accused me of turning everything into a life lesson. Maybe they were right!
Have you learned wise things while doing life’s outwardly boring and repetitive tasks…maybe from doing the laundry, or exercising, even shaving your face *guys*?
You know I love to hear from you!
