Mariposa has following challenge for us :
In the midst of the busyness of our lives we tend to get overwhelmed by it that we forget ourselves. Most of us are inclined to look out for others first, yet we deserve to look for ourselves as much or even more. I believe we do !
Let us share each other's self pampering stories...may they be from little pleasures to guilty pleasures!
I might sound pretentious, but I never have forgotten myself. ! I also don't belong to the people who look for others first unless sombody lays there half dead which is probably a little exaggerated.
Therefore I have no pampering stories because I consider self pampering a necessity to keep me in good health, mood and fit. To me it is like eating or drinking. I think I have always done the same my whole life. I went to the hairdresser, to the beautician for a skin cleaning and that was it. Taking time for other things like painting or reading depended on my mood, but I always found a way to manage. I didn't like any kind of sport, I played a little tennis but that was more for social purposes.
Since I am retired I do much more of course because I have more time and I also changed.
I still go to the hairdresser all 6 weeks no more, and to a beautician all 3 months. But now I also love to walk, because I can take my photos. Walking or jogging senselessly around to catch fresh air is not my cup of tea and I hate hiking. I like to
Of course I also could add that I enjoy a good meal in a nice restaurant, but I am not a fan of chocolate or other sweet stuff.
Concerning self pamering I am rather boring !
Take also care of your partner !
