As a little girl I wasn’t much of a doll person. I had a beloved stuffed bear named Cuddles and a Chatty Cathy doll who underwent some very unfortunate surgery, but that’s another story...
My best friend, Sally, had paper dolls that fascinated me. We could change the outfits and accessories on the same figures dozens of times—whatever suited our whims—and we did, for hours at a time.
I find myself switching outfits—sometimes several times a day—to suit the occasion: from early-morning tai chi, to pajamas at night, and everything in-between:
But no matter how many times I change my clothes, from glorious to grubby, the essence of me remains the same.
Like an Oreo cookie, it’s what’s on the inside that really matters! By the way, today (March 6, 2012) is the 100th anniversary of Oreo cookies!
Are you delighted with your essence?
