I realize that it is not Monday, but I had the best day yesterday and I have to tell you all about it. A couple of months ago, on my birthday, my wonderful friend Ashleigh, gifted me with the best gift ever. It was a gift card to Natural Body Spa with a 30 minute facial and 30 minute massage. I was so happy about it, and I just knew I was going to use it the next day. Well, lets fast forward to seven months later and my gift card is still sitting on the kitchen counter. Funny, how time flies by so fast. It feels like yesterday I was turning 23.
Last week, as I was walking to workout, I realized I had parked next to Natural Body Spa. It was perfect! I walked in, made myself an appointment, purposely making it on Monday, since that's the most dreaded day, therefore, treating myself on a Monday just made sense. As I was laying there, about to get my facial, I was so thankful that Ashleigh had given me with this great gift. Although, I hadn't used it in seven months, I am glad I used it yesterday. I had been so stressed out, constantly focusing on my future and being extremely worn out from my new work schedule, instead of focusing on the positive things at this given moment. I don't want to get all sappy here, but I will say, take the time to treat yourself. Whether its a massage, good book, or a cup of hot tea, just take the time to reflect on the present moment. I didn't realize how much I needed that time, until yesterday.
