Spread the sparkle.
Sparkle. A piece of advice I was given last week sparked a new outlook on life.
A lady from my hometown complimented me on the outfit I was wearing at the time. Of course I was dressed head-to-toe in thrifty finds. After I gave my spiel of why I shop at Goodwill, she looked me straight in the eyes and said, “Never let anyone dull your sparkle.”
Those six words have lingered in the back of mind. Friday, I attended Customer Appreciation Day at the Ring Road store in Elizabethtown, and I made it a point to glance around the store. I found several sparkly items that reminded of the kind lady’s comment. All the shimmery merchandise was unique; each piece was bold and striking.
I can’t help but wonder if people who wear their Goodwill finds proudly – as well as those who work tirelessly for the nonprofit – glimmer like those Candie’s heels did. Whatever the case may be, remember you sparkle.
