Amazing Grace...


As you saw from my other post, I am a BIG fan of Philosophy's Amazing Grace. Love the smell... so fresh and clean! I was sitting in the tub the other night and read the bottle. I was shocked at the depth of meaning on my shampoo and conditioner bottles!!!.

"How you climb up the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain. And so, it is with life, which for many of us becomes one gigantic test followed by one gigantic lesson. In the end, it all comes down to one word. Grace. It's how you accept winning and losing, good luck and bad luck, the darkness and the light."

Wow. That's the lesson right? There are going to be peaks and valleys on the journey but it's how you handle life that counts.


The conditioner bottle is no less amazing (a little depressing though!):

"It is not "if" we will lose the things we love, it is "when". With some, the loss comes in a major catastrophic event. For most, love is surrendered one piece at a time...first childhood, a promising romance, the passing of a loved one, and finally a child who leaves home. But, as we lose, can we not gain a deep knowing that in the presence of grace, love is eternal."

Not to be outdone...the sea salt scrub bottle (I think this one is my favorite):

"If you only had one day to live how would you spend it? Would you smile or frown? Watch the sunrise or watch TV? Take a walk or take a nap? Say I love you or show you don't care? Consider this...you aren't guaranteed tomorrow so treasure this day as if it's not your last but the best day you will ever own."

That's my little piece of wisdom for you today dears...off to buy teeny tiny diapers!!!

I love these too!! I am a huge philosophy fan! I also love how the other shower gels come with recipes on them, I've never made one - but maybe I should.

I also wore amazing grace on my wedding day and every now and then I wear it just to perk me up! It's awesome how some things can do that!

Great post!!

I think you have told me about "One" lotion I have not tried. I am a lotion addict. Will have to have me some of that. Good Post!

I'm not sure I am woman enough to be educated and cleaned at the same time.

I love Philosophy stuff! I always read the bottles, even though the ones I have are the recipe to make the food for whatever scent I bought!
