We all (especially moms) have a tendency to put everyone ahead of ourselves. The kids need back to school clothes, the hubby can’t live without a new thing-a-ma-bob (my Big Guy always seems to “need” something golf related) and so we put ourselves on the back burner when it comes to the little luxuries.
But what about us? If we keep putting off doing something nice for ourselves, what happens is that we (no, I) start to feel like I don’t deserve anything nice at all. AND THAT’S JUST NOT TRUE. You and I – we all deserve to be treated to something special once in a while. Which is why I got the pedicure (and the foot & leg massage – ahhhhh).
What is it that is your special treat? Is it a piece of good chocolate? Why not stop in at the Godiva store and buy yourself a truffle? ONE TRUFFLE probably won’t break the budget and the pleasure that you get from it is sooooo worth it. Is it a double tall extra whip mocha from Starbucks? Then girl (or boy) you’ve GOT to go in and order yourself one.
Granted, I don’t do these things daily. Then they wouldn’t be my “special” treat if I did. So, today I want you to figure out what small luxury would really make you feel GREAT and find a way to enjoy it.
Have fun, indulge yourself a bit, you deserve it.
