Be Nice to You

When was the last time you did something nice for yourself?

Women, in particular, are great at giving to and serving others.

Somehow, in the busyness of life, we forget that we deserve special treatment, too.

It doesn't have to be something big or expensive to count.
 Even a backyard picnic with lots of candles counts!

  Here are some more ideas (based on personal experience--hee, hee):

 1) Slowly drink a cup of hot coffee with half and half  or tea. Truly enjoy each sip.

2)  Read a book for an hour before bed, after a hot shower, and after applying scented lotion from head to toe.

3) Have a spa pedicure. Pick a zany new color for your nails. How about yellow or deep cranberry, like this sweet pansy?

4) Catch a movie, like The Book Club, with a friend, and laugh heartily.

5)  Eat buttered popcorn while at the movie.

6) Treat yourself to exercise you love. If it's swimming, get in an extra session. You will feel great!

7) Go and buy some pansies. They will perk up your spirit!

You get the idea. Be good to YOU!

This is a nice list of ways to treat ourselves, Susan. I especially like the popcorn one. There is just something about that popcorn at the movies. I always ask for extra butter. : )

Have a delightful weekend, my friend.

A lovely list of treat ideas -- most of them I've probably tried/done at some point. Always good to be reminded of the possibilities. I bought two six-packs of pansies yesterday and planted them this morning. Already they are cheering the little patch where they now live.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend, Susan.

I love to go to the theater with a friend, also movie, concert or lecture.
I like to treat myself to a frozen yogurt on a hot day. I love to see new places and see and hear the local food and music. Reading a wonderful story in my kindle in my green chair by the sliding glass door on a summer's day is my favorite of all.

A lavender-scented bath, with a glass of wine and some candles.

Pure bliss!!
