Being single is a blessing and don’t you forget it! You dont have to answer to anyone but God! You can wear what you want (during the day and night) you don’t share your bank account with anyone. You can cook if you feel like it or not cook if you don’t. You can stay out late and sleep in if you so desire! You are your own woman. Men are an added bonus to our lives but having one won’t make your life better, your life is great now! You are alive, you are working towards your goals, you have people who love you, you love yourself and most importantly God loves you! I want to encourage you today to schedule a “pamper me day.” You work hard everyday, whether in or outside of the home. As women, we do so much for others and sometimes neglect ourselves. So set your pamper me date and do some of your favorite things. I actually think all women should try to do this once a month!
Start by putting your cell phone on silent! Don’t allow work or people to stress you on your pamper day! Take a walk around the park, go shopping or window shopping just to get out of the house if you don’t have shopping money. You can always just buy something small if you don’t have a lot of money. Buy your favorite smell goods, some make up, a piece of jewelry or a blouse. Have lunch at your favorite restaurant. Get dressed up and go somewhere or dress comfy in your house and lounge around all day. Whatever makes you happy!
If you’re a home body, take a bath, get your favorite carry out dinner and movie. If you like to go out, get dressed up and go out for a night on the town with your girls. It’s all about you. We all lived fast paced lives and sometimes we need to relax with a good book, movie, yummy food and put our feet up. If you want to have a slumber party, invite your girls to come over for laughs and girl talk. If you just want to be quiet and enjoy the peace, send your kids away for the night and enjoy being alone. Call it a self-care mental health day! Love on yourself! Do your toes, a facial, bake brownies, whatever makes you happy! I love keeping a journal, I have on and off since I was a little girl. Maybe you want to take time to write and reflect on your life and your goals. It would be a great time to pray and seek God while the house is quiet.
The point is to have fun and do whatever makes you happy! You are an awesome woman and you deserve a break! Now stop reading this post and go schedule your pamper day!!!!
