Good Morning! Hope you enjoyed the long weekend. Now it’s back to reality…
This morning I am linking up with Becky for Treat Yourself Tuesday.
Being a new mama to two kiddos, I am notorious for not taking time to treat myself (or even regularly taking a daily shower). So I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands (when they aren’t busy holding a newborn) and be committed to taking time for myself each week. After all, on a recent flight, the flight attendant reminded me that in case of an emergency (the plane crashing) I must wear my oxygen mask first and then assist any children near by. Those Southwest ladies and gentlemen sure do know how to remind me of self care and survival.
This past week I have been practicing this. Not in the form of wearing an oxygen mask but in the form of these things…
Treating myself to a sunrise run. This is something only runners will truly understand. The solo sunrise run. Setting my alarm for a 5 a.m. wake up and hitting the pavement before the others in the house wake. GLORIOUS!
Treating myself to a smoothie instead of making one at home for a quarter of the price.
BRAIN FREEZE DELICIOUS!
Treating myself to a cookie the size of my toddlers head. TO DIE FOR!
What have you treated yourself to lately?
