Take Care of YOU


What good thing(s) have you done for YOU lately?

Here are some of mine:

* Bought my backyard swing
* Painted my nails bright red
* Took a yoga glass
* Ordered three bottles of wine from my favorite winery
* Joined a book club
* Booked my spa getaway!!!!!!!

I am not a woman who has a hard time doing for myself while still taking care of those that are under my care. If I’m not happy, no one is happy. Trust that. However, I know that some of you actually believe that if you do something for yourself than you are being selfish and self-centered. You really need to rethink that. If you don’t take care of you, who will?

Do something really nice for yourself today. You deserve it.

how true this is! i had fallen into the mentality that i was wrong for doing for me..but you are right..if you don't do for you, who will?

That's why I am going to ATlantic City this weekend to see Monica. I DESERVE IT..and I am going to enjoy myself without any regrets

Chele, I oh, sooooo needed to read this. I've been so caught up in the chaos in my life that I haven't really done the things for myself that I need to. I'm going to take care of that ASAP.

I have to say, I'm a little jealous of the spa getaway! Happy SITS day!

So true! My problem is I have so much to do that taking the time to do something relaxing for myself is just plain stressful because all I do at the time is think about how much I have to do!
