Why do we wait is a question I asked myself the other night, you are probably wondering what is she on about, ambiguous much?
The other night my husband was out and I decided to give myself a face mask, which I haven't done in ages and then I lathered myself in beautiful smelling body butter. I thought this is so nice, I should pamper myself more often. Then it got me thinking, why do we wait for a perfect time or a special occasion? Why can't we do or use something all the time?
I have been trying to get myself out of this type of thinking when it comes to really nice crockery, clothes, jewellery, candles and the list goes on. I used to be that person that said "I will save that for a special occasion." But why? Isn't today, this very moment, a special occasion? Shouldn't I treat myself every day?
Treat this moment and every moment as a special occasion, life is too short and too stressful not to wear your favourite outfit, or burn your favourite candle or even have a relaxing bubble bath every single night. It is all about making the time for you, you are amazing and deserve it.
''These things will just sit on the shelf un-used and wasted instead of being enjoyed and loved.
If this post resonates with you and you find yourself nodding in agreement, I would now love for you to grab a piece of paper and a pen, sit somewhere quiet and list down all the things that you leave for a special occasion. It can be material things or it can be things like pampering yourself with a pedicure or face mask.
Once you have written them down I want you to stick this piece of paper somewhere you will see it regularly, for the material things pop them in a place they are easy to get to so you will now use them.
When you want a quiet day or night look at the list and choose one, two or all of the non-material things and do them, enjoy them and love them!
+ Burn my favourite candle
+ Use my favourite mug I got from Disneyland every day (I didn't want it to break, but if it breaks it means I have used it which is what this is all about)
+ Pop on a face mask
+ Give myself a pedicure
+ Enjoy a bubble bath with essential oils and read the time away
+ Make a pot of my favourite tea, pop my pillows on the floor and read a magazine
+ Wear my favourite jeans
+ Dance around the house singing at the top of my lungs and laugh at myself
+ Sit in stillness outside in nature
+ Go to my local café on my own and grab a coffee
