"Happiness is not in money, but in shopping." Marilyn Monroe
The annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale begins for Nordstrom cardholders next week on August 4th. Depending on your level, you will be able to order prior to the actual start of the sale. Your level is based on how much you spend at Nordstrom on a yearly basis. Everyone NOW can view the online catalog at Nordstrom.com.
For the first time, in my life, I will not be going in-store for the sale. I am positive many like me will do the same. Ever since, I was in high school, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has been an exciting event for me. Grab a coffee, meet a friend and purchase clothes. We usually see other friends and spread the word on what is hot. No doubt, the year 2020 will be one for the history books.
If someone had told me in 2019, that everything I love in life would be halted because of a pandemic in 2020, I would have thought not possible. As we all know, when the virus appeared, everything stopped. We are slowly coming back out and one day this way of life will be over. Remain positive, upbeat and seek out the light.
Be Kind, Be Respectful, Be Open
In the meantime, treat everyone with respect and kindness. It is probable that everyone may have a different opinion on the virus. We are inundated with information daily that might be true or may not be true. There is no "true" consensus as information changes rapidly with the evolution of the new virus. Several of my friends have had it and are fine. All were over the age of 59 and several with underlying conditions. Be safe, thoughtful, and considerate. Do not stop your life for fear of the unknown and instead embrace being practical and prudent. Wear a mask.
Most importantly, be kind to everyone. If you do not like a situation, do not participate. Walk away with grace. After all, none of us have the answers nor do we know how this will all play out.
We are being tested mentally and physically. It is how you deal with each situation that will define who are in this world. Will we make mistakes? Absolutely. Learn to apologize and move forward with poise. Think of Audrey Hepburn. What would Audrey do? Become an Audrey in this life - A Queen of Kindness.
Carry on! Persevere! Now for shopping the sale! Audrey did love clothes and remains a style icon today.
