Treat Yo' Self!
In addition to being one of the funniest tv shows ever, Parks and Recreation dropped some major advice three years ago. We have Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle to thank for giving us permission to treat ourselves!
Life gets stressful sometimes you guys. Work gets tough, things get hard, we get tired. That's why it's SO important to be kind to yourself.
What do I mean by "treat yo' self"? I mean TREAT YO SELF. Life is short, do not deprive yourself of things that bring you joy.
You've worked hard. You rock. You deserve to feel good about something!
Go eat a delicious treat (even if you have to "cheat"), go buy those shoes you're dying for, go get a luxurious massage! Do something good for yourself!
For me at least, retail therapy is a super real thing. Last time I had a cold I went out and bought a new nail polish colour, because that made me feel better. I'm not saying to go crazy and buy a bunch of shit you don't need. But sometimes you just need to treat yourself to something nice, just for you.
Especially if you've been working real hard and saving every penny. Sticking to a budget and watching your money is amazing, and I truly believe that every once in a while, putting a little bit of that money towards something special, is good for you.
I love doing face masks, all thanks to my sister. They're fun, they make me feel like a Queen, and it doesn't hurt that they're super affordable! (Who doesn't love treating themselves to a sale?)
It's important to take time for ourselves to do whatever we feel will nourish our souls.
So if you're out there, looking for the permission to do so, here it is:
TREAT YO' SELF!
How do you all treat yourselves? I'd love to know! Tell me in the comments section below!
