Doing Nothing

It’s been a while since I put myself on top of my list.

It’s about time I give myself a break!

After all, I’m turning 50 in 2 months.

 

Went shopping.

Ate a big chocolate chip cookie.

Watched Eat, Pray, Love.

 

Went shopping again.

Ate another big chocolate chip cookie.

Bought candles and incense.

 

Went for a long run.

Indulged in a hefty bowl of pasta.

Spent the afternoon outdoors.

 

I almost forgot what it felt like to make me a priority.

Am so glad I took the time to pay attention to me.

It felt really good doing nothing, ending up with something for myself!

Days Gone By

I used to pamper myself.  Now I just pay people to do it for me. Sometimes I get tired, watching them do my jogging, though; and I never burden them with eating my large chocolate chip cookies for me.  Some things ya just gotta do yoursel, y'know?

Rina, Good for you! It's all

Rina,

Good for you! It's all part of the transition from primarily being mother and daughter, and maybe partner, to being yourself, first and foremost!

Taking care of Rina...

This should be a priority. (But I know from experience we forget this important person who needs care.)  Glad you remembered.

Hi Sue!  Nice to see you

Hi Sue!  Nice to see you again.  I am glad I remembered myself too!  I had a wonderful time going on a date with myself and I felt energized once again.  :-)
