Give Yourself The Gift Of Beauty
The other day I was reading an advice column where a woman had written in that she was upset that no one was no longer paying attention to her. She had dedicated her life to being a good wife and mother. Now, her husband had left her and her kids had grown up and moved away. She had done nothing at all for herself and nothing she had accomplished just for her. It made me think about how many women forget to put themselves on their lists of priorities. It's so important to be good to yourself and pampering yourself doesn't mean you have to jump on a plane headed for a tropical island. How many of us would really do that anyway if it meant leaving our families? There are little things you can do to make yourself feel better like go for a manicure or pedicure (or both!). I did this the other day with my daughter and I was so happy to be sitting in a chair and letting someone else do the work while I closed my eyes and allowed myself to relax for a few minutes. Another thing I enjoy doing is buying myself flowers. You don't have to spend a fortune to add some beauty to your little world and you certainly don't have to wait for someone else to do it for you. With Father's Day just around the corner, you can do something nice for yourself and something for him too. Order some Flowers for you and for him. You can make something really unique with his flowers like a custom-made monogram which he could hang over his dresser or take to his office. Flowers aren't just for women, they're for everyone. Besides it's a great way for him to get in touch with his feminine side!
