Did you open this post to find out what you NEED? Are you thinking I’m going to try and convince you to buy some new quilting gadget or new book? NOPE! I am here to tell you that what you NEED is this:
Do something special for yourself every day.
Yes, every single day you should do something special just for you. Why? I counter with “Why Not”? You deserve it! I am sure that we all work hard every single day…some of us work hard at a job, some of us work hard taking care of elderly parents, some of us work hard to keep our houses clean and tidy, some of us take care of children every day. We all work hard at something most every single day. We are busy doing stuff for others… a lot. So it’s important that we do stuff for ourselves as well. Make it something special to you.
What can you do that’s special to you? There are so many choices! I love to take some quilting time, just for me. Some days that’s not in the cards. But then there are the evenings when I can definitely work on some embroidery or hand stitching.
Sometimes I treat myself to a little online shopping. Other times I might just make a special mug of hot chocolate and add some whipped cream and enjoy that while watching a favorite tv show for a little bit. Here are some other ideas for doing something special just for you:
- burn a scented candle
- use a new soap in the shower
- diffuse some essential oils
- take a long bubble bath
- make yourself a nice cup of tea and put it in a special teacup
- bake some treats
- order dinner in
- buy yourself some flowers
- get a new haircut
- meet with a friend
- start a new book
There are so many ways in which you can do something special just for you! And don’t let anyone make you feel guilty about this…you deserve it!
If you have a favorite way of doing something special for yourself, please share it in the comments! I would love to read your ideas and I’m sure others would too!
Until next time~happy creating…and happy- treating- yourself!
