(Not so) Guilty Pleasures

I am dreaming of indulgence today. Here is what I am dreaming of:

  • Fresh vegetables with flavors that tingle on the tongue.
  • A long, invigorating walk full of the damp smell of early morning.
  • The zinging joy of a smart choice, a good investment, a brave resolution.
  • The peace of five minutes alone with your own breath.
  • The thrill of a good bargain thoughtfully purchased.
  • A steaming hot bubble bath that soaks into your bones.
  • The laughter of a child as you play with them.
  • An act of kindness with no reward but your feeling of wholeness.
  • Rich hot tea with just a touch of creme.
  • The serenity of a room arranged in a whole new way.
  • The pride of a small accomplishment.

Being good to yourself isn’t a sacrifice. It’s an indulgence. And it’s one you can give yourself every single day.

  1. Here are a few things I’m dreaming of.

    *Snuggling with my sweet puppy
    *The thrill of finishing a good book
    *A summer storm where you stop and just listen to the rain
    *The smell of cookies baking in the oven.
