Good Evening, Sweethearts! How are you doing? I’m glad you’re still here. 🙂
Here’s a shortstop for your week.
I walked by a colleague one day and she said: “You have a nice walk-by scent.” I chuckled at the randomness.
Her: “You know what I mean? Like, you smell good when you walk by, but it’s not overpowering. It’s pleasant.”
Me: “I knew what you meant and thank you so much. I appreciate you telling me that.”
Her: “I know that may sound weird, but you can get a horrible whiff from some people.”
We both laughed. She didn’t know that one of my insecurities is my scent. Because I spend most days with nasal congestion, I am protective of how I smell. I don’t want to have an offensive body odor and be unaware of it. So, when someone shares that I have a pleasant fragrance, I give myself a high five.
My questions for you:
- What is your walk-by fragrance?
- Do people detect positivity when you walk by?
- Does your negativity have a stench?
- Does unresolved anger steam from your skin?
- Does drama drip from you as you walk around others?
My prayer is that I spiritually emit a pleasant fragrance to those around me. I’ve been told that I have a peaceful positive aura and that makes me feel good. Don’t get me wrong — I am not naive in thinking I am perfect. I have and continue to do a lot of self-work and it is not sexy. It definitely doesn’t smell like high-end perfume. Fertilizer stinks but it makes beauty grow. I’m not oblivious to that truth. When my colleague served that compliment, it was the end of a workday, so I’m sure that I had a mixture of scents on me like any other day. Apparently, the dominant scent has been pleasant to her every time I pass her by which, on that day, was a pleasant mix of Arm & Hammer laundry detergent, Degree deodorant, and a hint of peach. lol.
Peace & Thanks for listening, Sweetheart! Smell good out there!
