Project You

Hello my lovelies! Today is the day I will post about my experience with the Project You sunglasses. I have to pass them on (sigh thinking about getting my own now) and now I must do my other part of the project, photos and share happy things that happened with the glasses. Oh and check out Alyssa's blog for more information about Project You.

This was taken on the train from Sydney to Lithgow. It was a 3 hour trip so I thought why not wear the heart shaped sunglasses. I swear it's the glasses that made the sunlight come in like that.

I promised Alyssa I would try and get a photo with some of the cows. These are bulls actually and they scare me. This is as close as I would get to them. The glasses gave me a boost of courage to face my fear.

I made some friends with inanimate objects. This is my porcelain Mr Eagle. As you can see we are quite close now. Enough to get intimate photos like this.

I even gave him a kiss, though I'm screwing my face up because his beak was a little cold.

SO my happy list from wearing the sunglasses....

* I wasn't afraid to be silly
* Just looking at the heart shaped glasses made me happy
* I smiled a lot more while wearing them
* I had more courage to do things (photo with cows)
* I noticed the little things around
* People looked at you again while wearing the glasses wondering why you look so happy

And a quote to share (and for Project You)

" Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen Hard. Practice Wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Continue to learn. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is. "
~ Mary Anne Radmacher

I had a lot of fun with the project and it reminded me that it's ok to take silly photos and to sing out loud (while cleaning) and to dance to a song without caring. I hope everyone else who gets the sunglasses has a great experience too.

Have a fabulous rest of week!

It looks funny! I think the project it's pretty nice, I've seen it with other things like toys, the toy traveling for a lot of places, I guess the one with sun glasses has creativity and will be nice to see other people wearing them :)

Did you got my letter? Can't wait! Why is Australia so far away? *eh eh* I already saw something I want to send you in the next letter and can't wait, I feel so excited when I see things my pals will like!

grrr I should shut up.
