Learn to Speak ‘Sparkle’…
Sometimes I feel like I have a language of my own! Here are some of the terms you’ll see on the site:
LifeGloss: Little things that make you feel good from the inside-out, to nurture your soul and spirit. LifeGloss is a derivative of ‘lip gloss’ because lip gloss is something quick and easy you can do to add a little shine to your face. LifeGloss adds that sparkle to your soul! LifeGloss comes in especially handy when you are tired, stressed, harried, busy, or feel like you are just going through the motions of life, existing not living. Our community is here for you when you are absolutely radiant or when your light is dim and you need to borrow some sparkle from a friend…
Inspirista: A woman who has a positive attitude, an inner glow, a contagious energy that makes you want to smile. An Inspirista takes challenges with strides, and doesn’t allow a failure to hold her back, or a risk to scare her off. An Inspirista turns failure into her own success. An Inspirista embraces her flaws, and finds beauty in the flaws. An Inspirista has a vision and is creating it for herself. An Inspirista inspires people to do what they love, follow their passions, and gives back to the world by helping others.
Spark: Ignites passion, awakens the spirit, provokes thought, breathes life into us, an idea, a vision. Spark is the category to go to when you want to add a little fuel to your fire and get inspired.
Bounce: As in “bounce back”. Bounce is the part of our being that deals with challenges, finds beauty in imperfections, keeps moving forward, even when faced with a roadblock or detour. Bounce is flexible, open to lessons, and even knows when to be still. Bounce is the category to go to when you want to face the challenge with a true grace and knowing that everything happens for a reason, or when you just feel like ripping your hair out and need a little dose of inspiration.
Soar: Like a bird flying. To Soar seems effortless, but really learning to fly is one of the most painful, strenuous things a living creature must endure. Soar is about taking inspired actions, putting “footsteps to your prayers” (as my dear friend Inspirista Terry Grahl says), and work to create your vision. Soar is also that effortless feeling when you are in motion, living out your purpose, flowing through the course even when you are being re-routed. Soar is the category to go to when you want to set goals, visualize, and be the woman you were born to be.
