February 10th - Indulgences...
How wonderful it is to have a few indulgences! Sometimes, for a fleeting moment, I think should I and a resounding YES shows up.
Are they really splurges, hair appointments (color), massage and facial. I sadly paused my nails and do miss it! The hair is a necessary personal care and doubles as therapy as my hair dresser and I are friends now after 25 years together!! The massage preventive healthcare, and another friendship, our relationship probably 15 year range. Can I justify the facial – sure, again self-care and yup, a valued friendship beyond 10 years! The real indulgence, the one on pause, my manicures and someday I will be able to reconsider them.
To feel better about doing these, I pick up catering shifts. Though I struggle to believe I am worth being ‘pampered’, once I find someone I like, I recognize it’s a mutual commitment. These appointments their livelihood. A win/win!
Love yourself enough, to love doing something kind for yourself!
Hmmm, worth it…day 200!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
