Hair it comes

Wow this stuff really does work! I have been using Wink on my eyelashes and eyebrows for 12 days. I have been applying it every night before I go to bed and every morning they look so much better. It’s so easy to apply you just twist the pen and oil comes up on the brush, you just brush it across your brows and the hairline of your lids. I haven’t had any issues with irritation or anything. My eyelashes seem to be coming in thicker than before and I don’t really think I need to pencil in my eyebrows anymore. They are still short but seem to be growing more as you are reading this! My eyelashes are about 2-3 millimeters and my brows are about 1-2 millimeters already, now remember I started with nothing. I love supporting a wonderful company like this. And I definitely recommend this stuff http://www.AmalieBeauty.com let me know what you think. Wink!

The days of not having to shave my legs is almost over. Yay! Just in time for summer, ugh.  It was a nice break. Now that I am on this estrogen blocker I may be having to shave my beard and mustache and chest as well, ya never know, I am Italian! The hair on my head is finally getting thicker and darker, I was beginning to think I would look like that albino cactus forever! It is still really, really short, I’d say about ½ an inch or so, but thats ok no more need for hats. I am feeling pretty brave! I am really interested what color it actually will come in as I’ve heard people say it can come back in a completely different color than you had before, I wonder if I can put in a request!

It is pretty crazy the way your body tries to heal itself if you just give it the chance and maybe a little support. I have learned to love my body in a whole new way.

It’s Here!

IMG_1981The Amalie package arrived! I am so excited! I will start applying it tonight. Don’t be scared, creepy eye picture, but as I told you I will keep a picture journal of how it’s working. Almost no eyebrows or eyelashes, day one. I can’t believe how quickly it came. The mail these days is amazing. I actually love getting things in the mail. The anticipation of waiting for a package feels like Christmas did when I was a kid. I never pay for faster shipping and it almost always arrives sooner than I expect. Its almost fun guessing how long a parcel is going to take to arrive. I certainly was not expecting my Amalie package to arrive so quickly, this company is amazing!

As much as I did not sign up for this whole cancer thing, I am impressed by the kindness I am finding in people. From the thoughtful gestures of strangers to the friend I have in India that texted me through some of the scariest times in the beginning of my illness with his wise and witty humor, maybe I just needed a good ol jostling! Friends that have come back into my life that I had lost touch with to the new friends I am meeting. Offers of generosity and kindness. Getting cards of encouragement and little tokens and prayers. You don’t know how much this helped and encouraged me, thank you all. People that are genuinely interested in how I am doing, WOW I am touched.

Kindness really does matter. When you are kind and thoughtful to someone it makes them feel good and they want to be kind and helpful to someone else. I think it brings out the best in people, also it feels good to do something nice for someone else without expecting anything in return. I believe we need more of this in the world today, seems people can be so quick to jump on the negativity train. Don’t do it! I don’t think being kind is being wimpy or a pushover in fact I think that being kind and thoughtful in the face of fear and adversity is very powerful. Those little acts of kindness do make a difference.
