The mission for this week was to take myself out on a date. Spend time with myself and attend to my needs myself. Without help from anyone else. I bet some of you have heard about a self-date, or the phrase date yourself first. But you might wonder what that actually encompasses. I started the day out by going to the gym and I was planning on wearing a cute outfit and going out to a restaurant to have a nice meal somewhere new in Whitewater, but after I got thinking about it is that really what I wanted? I needed to reflect about what I was feeling and how I really wanted to spend quality time with myself. So after chowing down some Culver’s I came to the conclusion that what I really wanted was a pampering day. Almost like a mini spa day, if you will.
I lit my favorite candle that I got from a local store in my home town, called Candle Crest. I turned on some music, and I pampered myself with a nice face mask and skin care routine. I put on lotion, painted my toes and nails, and I watched The Office for the third time this year. I honestly couldn’t have been more relaxed and content and I am proud that I recognized what I needed and was able to fulfill the goal. I am now recharged and ready to take on the next mountain of homework. Wish me luck!
