I try to wake up every day with a smile on my face, but sometimes I just need an extra push to feel positive. That’s one of the reasons I love Instagram. I love the seeing the beautiful pictures posted by the people I follow and the encouragement that fellow Instagrammers provide to one another. I have been following one account in particular for several months that is so encouraging -LitWithinDotCom. This account is full of encouraging quotes and empowering images.
LitWithin’s account is run by Allison, who like me wakes up every day facing the challenges of living with the chronic condition of Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease. One of the challenges is trying to apply eyeliner when your hands are shaking from the tremors associated with Parkinson’s. Allison recently created a great You Tube video that provides tips on how to apply eyeliner when your hands are shaking.
This morning I implemented her tips and it really helped. My lines may not be perfectly smooth, but they are significantly improved. Even if your hands are stable, you should check out her short video. Also, check out her Instagram and follow her if you need a little dose of positivity. We all face different challenges every day, but in Allison’s words, “My light cannot be dimmed, for I am Lit Within!”
Thank you for reading. Have a wonderful day!
