Yes this is a season for giving, but don’t forget to give to yourself. This year especially required self -TLC, self care and self gratitude. Give yourself props for living through this time. When I think about all that I’ve endured the past 9 months, I’m surprised I’m not clinically depressed or divorced. Shit was definitely trying times, to say the least. I know others had it much worse, but everyone is experiencing challenges , the severity may differ, but that doesn’t take away one’s personal struggles.
We’ve got a few more weeks till the end of the year, why not indulge and spurge a little?
Here is what I plan to do to splurge:
- Eat cake ( because it’s Jesus’ birthday and because I want to)
- Give myself a pedicure
- Paint my nails
- Go for a hike
- Buy myself a jacket ( which I already did)
- Read all morning in bed
- Buy myself perfume
- Write poems
- Take a hot bath
- Eat taco bell!!!🔥🔥🔥
- Bake and eat cookies
My two – week vacation starts next Friday. Let’s see how much I can check off my list. But then again, I’ll be perfectly content with doing absolutely nothing, except for getting perfume. I just lament the upcoming year with a scent. Something that when I smell it, it’ll make me smile.
