People are like stained glass windows: they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light within.
-Elisabeth K├╝bler Ross
Here I am, a little over four months into One Little Word and keeping at it. Sparkle has been popping up here and there. Sparkle has been showing itself just when I need it. And boy have there been times when I really needed it. Like I mentioned previously, I am in Ali Edward's class and I do work on some of the monthly prompts, but a lot of times they just don't fit into what I want to accomplish with this journey. I want to live this word, not just scrapbook it.

I am sure you dedicated readers/subscribers have noticed another lull in posting. I apologize. Here is where living my word comes into play. The past week was quite rough at work. I cannot go into too much detail, but I will say that people made promises to me and essentially lied and those promises were broken. Coupled with the fact that I have worked 5 of the 7 days since the incident, I have been down. I feel like I am just emotionally and physically down.

I woke up today determined to sparkle. To let my attitude be unaffected by the recent developments. I want to embody a glittering, shining personality. I love working with people conceptualizing their projects. I love helping people learn about new tools for trying new types of creating. That is what makes my job fun! Now to remember that and rise above the crap!
