Isn’t amazing how after a bad fight, a bad day or just feeling bad, you indulge in some of your favorite things and you feel 100 times better? Yesterday morning, the day started off poorly. But I decided to get past it. I went for a walk outside in the sun. I called my dad and immediately was smiling. I stopped in the Cleveland Park library. I didn’t get anything, but since I was in a little girl, being in a library or bookstore has always had a calming, rejuvenating effect on me. It’s like a home away from home.
Then, I picked up some fresh bread, a coffee, and headed back home. I worked out and read more from a new book, took a bubble bath, and had a good dinner. And smelled my beautiful roses from my boyfriend.
By the end of the day, I felt sooo much better, all because I was indulging. It wasn’t a gallon of ice cream. It wasn’t a whole pizza, or an entire bottle of wine. But it was all good, little things that made me feel better.
If you’re feeling bad, remember to indulge in the little things. I promise you things will look and feel better after that.
