For the past semester I made a promise to treat myself right: physically, psychologically, spiritually - the works! First, I started to eat healthy and exercise. Then, I challenged myself with my academic studies. I made some new friends that I can connect with on an intellectual basis. In this process, I started writing and producing poetry and short stories. I have kept these works private and confidential simply because they have a special meaning to me and they matter and make sense to just me. And finally, I started to take more time to slow down in life -- to lead a more meaningful and purposeful life.
And now that the semester is over I'm taking time to treat myself. I went to get my hair and make-up professionally done (see picture) and yesterday I went for a facial. These are things I would NEVER treat myself to because they were "too expensive" or "I really didn't need it."
Now I know I need it. And now I know how good it feels when you take care of yourself.
So that's where I've been. Getting all weird, taking care of myself, and feeling pretty good :)
Thanks for sticking along during the break.
