Just like a baby, I want somebody to pamper me, and treat me to some TLC. Realizing that it will take somebody really special that knows my wants and desires, I decided that the best person to pamper me is me. I invite you to do the same.
Take time this weekend to do something for yourself. Something that you have been putting off for a while now. Maybe you put it off because you have been busy playing catch up with chores, family obligations, or other activities. Stop pushing your wants to the bottom of your to-do list. Empower yourself by pampering yourself!
Some things which come to mind could be a trip to the salon for a mani/pedi or maybe a much needed spa treatment or something else luxurious. You may be a foodie and want to finally sample the cuisine at the trendy restaurant downtown, or hit that gourmet market that just opened. Check out a baseball game or car show. Whatever you feel like doing, OR doing nothing at all.
Another form of pampering which you may consider is spending the weekend inside, ordering in, and binge-watching whatever your guilty pleasures may be. I say this is your weekend to enjoy. That’s right, the verdict is in. You have the right to be guilty to enjoy house arrest.
This weekend, I am finally going to use the gift cards that have been forming a. permanent indent in my wallet. I see a weekend filled with spa treatments, impulsive purchases, and tasty treats. Do the same, my friends, and look through your wallet for those gift cards you were saving for another day because that day is here.
Always remember that your wants matter as much as everybody else’s. I suggest, this weekend and even more often, to indulge in something fantastic…fantastic to you. Because if you can’t see the value of who you are and the treatment you deserve, how can anybody else?
