Every morning I wake up and I start my morning ritual. On the slow weekend mornings [my favorite kind of mornings] I take a warm shower and enjoy the comforting hug of warm water. On those slow mornings, I also get to enjoy the shower reading. I’m talking about shampoo bottles; the natural reading material of the bathroom.
My favorite shampoo bottle essay [so far] goes to Amazing Grace. For me, it is just the little spark of inspiration I crave in every morning.
“philosophy: life is a classroom. we are both student and teacher. each day is a test. and each day we receive a passing or failing grade in one particular subject: grace. grace is compassion, gratitude, surrender, faith, forgiveness, good manners, reverence, and the list goes on. being the smartest, the prettiest, the most talented, the richest or even the poorest can’t help. being a humble person can, and being a helpful person can guide you through your days with grace and gratitude.” -Amazing Grace shampoo by Philosophy
My runner-up for favorite bathroom material would have to go to another Philosophy bottle. [What can I say? The scent, the writing, I’m in love with it all] My Amazing Grace emulsion sits on my bathroom counter in between the toothbrushes and bar soap.
” philosophy: the natural aging process may cause our bodies to descend, but our spirits need not descend into worry. with time comes wisdom, character, strength, and perspective. our bodies are teaching us flexibility and the glory of embracing change on our beautiful journey. we can fight against the flow, or we can yield to knowing our bodies, gaining our souls and finding our grace.” -Amazing Grace emulsion by Philosophy
I hope these inspire you as much as they inspire me. What inspires you? Comment below!
