I think it's time for all of us to do something nice just for ourselves! We more than deserve special treatment each and every day but we know how life goes...
So today do something that is just for you! This doesn't have to cost anything but may take some cooperation.
For example...When you fix your breakfast use the best dishes you own...what are we all saving them for?? We're plenty special to use them for us.
Or, take the longest shower or bath ever...until the hot water tank is totally used up. If you have kids then either ask someone to watch them or when your SO comes home have him/her watch them while you soak as long as you please.
Or, make yourself a special lunch! Maybe make a great dessert...
Give yourself a great manicure. Have a wonderful nap today. If you enjoy a hobby then forget about
the housework and cooking and just do something fun that you enjoy. If you like surfing then spend a couple of hours just playing online. Go to the mall and visit one of those high end stores where they give you a free make-up treatment in hopes you will buy stuff. Oh, and make sure to get a bunch of free samples before you thank them for their time. Choose something just for you today even if it's only for a short time. Maybe there is someone you'd love to call and visit with...go ahead.
As for me...this is harder than I thought but I think I'm going for the hobby deal. I want to spend a day just sewing but I get so bogged down with what everyone else needs and the housework, laundry, etc...you all know...that I end up spending about
30 minutes if I'm lucky. So, tomorrow is ME day and I'm going to sew.
What are you going to do for yourself today???
