Piggybacking Kristi's post yesterday, I'm going to talk about pampering yourself.
Ideally, I'd love to go to a beach resort and get a massage as the waves crash just outside the window. So not going to happen, mostly because PNW beaches aren't conducive to such a scene. But, a girl can dream.
Luckily there are smaller, easier obtainable indulgences to be had. And I am enjoying one right now.
*A caramel latte served in a latte mug. No, it's not my first coffee of the day, but to me, there is something special about drinking a specially crafted latte in a wide mug.
*Office supplies. As a writer, any sort of office supplies, even a new pen or a bunch of new pens, are a favorite indulgence.
*An unexpected power nap
*Time alone. For me, this is golden. Working in retail and coming home to three people and a hyper dog--I love my early mornings before everyone else gets up. Even if I just sit and enjoy the calm before the work storm.
*Wooden wick candles that cackle like a fire.
*A great read
Your own indulgences are probably different from mine, but my advice to you is to indulge in the little things that make your spirit soar.
