Fridays are my favorite day of the week. There's something exciting about knowing that it's the start to a few days of being able to stop what you HAVE to do and to giving yourself permission to be able to do what you WANT to do.
Although I can't stress how important it is feed your soul and spend some time EVERY day doing something that you love and enjoy purely for yourself. Whether it's gardening, taking a candlelit bubble bath, diving into a favorite book, or eating ice cream while watching "The biggest loser", it's essential to tend to your joy. When I mention this to people, the common response goes something like "Oh I don't have any time to do what I want to do just for me".
I get that we all have responsibilities like full time jobs (or in some cases a hefty commute on top of overtime on top on top of a full time job), Babies to take care of, Dogs who are like babies to take care of, and Boyfriends who are sometimes like dogs and or babies to "take care of". Keeping all of that in mind, let's not forget that it is also a responsibility to see that your own needs are being met as well. You are significant too!
So on this feel good Friday I am allowing myself to sip some of my favorite vanilla iced coffee while lounging about and reading the latest tabloid gossip. Yup, tabloids and coffee dammit! Because it simply makes me feel good! It's my perfect way to kick start my Friday!
What are you doing today to make you feel good and to jump start your weekend?
