Day 248: An Evening of Self-Care

My home grown geraniums

It’s so calming just staring at a perfect flower (in this case my geranium plant), especially when you know that you’ve grown it and nurtured it yourself. That’s also how I feel about my two lovely daughters.

They said to me this evening ‘do what I wanted to do, not what everyone else wants you to do’. I said that I wanted to cuddle up and watch a film with them, but then we all realised how tired we all were so they decided to go to sleep. I think the change of routine and going back to school has exhausted them.

This gave me the idea of running a bath, lighting a candle and taking that me time that I’ve struggled to find over the last few days.

I bought a couple of new bubble baths the other day…

I chose the stress release one with rosemary and eucalyptus and it smells amazing. I think that I put too much in though (although I don’t think you can ever have too much stress relief 😊).

Can you ever have too much bubble bath?

I shall now sit back and have a nice soak and…

  • Listen to spa music
  • Reflect on my week
  • Think about more space clearing that I can do this weekend

After that I will go to bed and switch on my relaxation/meditation program, and drift off to sleep.

When everything you do feels effortless you will have found your path

No Gawdat, Solve for Happy

Hope you’ve had a lovely Friday.

Until tomorrow…
