What every working person truly needs to hear

ayla whitehead

Do you know why we wear uniforms to work? Its not just to all look the same or be easily recognized.  They are used to hold the weight of the day.  You store each difficult person, difficult task, heart breaking story you heard, or any other negativeness you experienced in the day inside the very fabric.  When you take it off you aren't taking off just clothing, you are taking off the negativity and physically removing the weight of the day. You will throw that tainted fabric in a sea of water and drown all of the bad, wash it all away, then dry the twisted, mangled, soaked, and tired fabric back into the form it once stood in, so the next time you put it on it can once again hold the weight of the day.  

Now my uniforms have been scrubs, suits, blue jeans, and even yoga pants and a sweatshirt covered in spit up with no bra....the uniform changes, the point of it does not.

I am asking you to use your uniform to it's full potential to ensure that you breathe a little easier, go a little farther, and stay strong enough so that you do not to crumble at the stones life throws at you each day.  Store the hard times you had in it's fabric, wash them all away, start completely fresh and weightless the next day when you put on that tool, that uniform (no matter what type it is), once again.

are you addicted to chapstick??

ayla whitehead

Yes there is such a thing! Turns out, big companies include drying agents such as fragrance, camphor, menthol, or salicylic acid in their lip products so that there is a higher demand for their products.  They also include heavy ingredients that do not allow the lips to breathe such as petroleum. Your skin begins to feel like it needs the chapstick to be comfortable. The more you apply, the faster your tube run out, the more often you purchase their product. But don't worry, there is a cure!  (and it's more simple than you could have ever imagined!)
