Eat, Pray, Love challenge #1

This week's things to work on? Do something for yourself and do it on impulse. When it pops into your head, DO IT; don't push it aside like it doesn't matter and don't push it aside with excuses about how you don't have time, you don't deserve it, etc. JUST DO IT. Luxuriate in pampering yourself in excess. Do it because you want to; do it because you deserve it.

For example, today on the way home from babysitting I wanted to go get a hot chocolate from Starbucks because I had not been there in a long time and hot chocolate from starbucks is one of my favorite things. EVER. SO, what did I do? I went to hot chocolate and got myself a small hot chocolate to drink on the way home. I felt like a rockstar. :) I looked like one too, even with my brown corduroy messenger bag from Aeropostale. I was in the ZONE! Also yesterday I had SWEETS! Yes, ladies and gentlemen (if you're here), I had gluten-free chocolate chip cookies! That'll hold me for a good long while, but the point is, I ate one because I wanted to!

Also, this is something I've been trying to do all week, girls (if you're reading this), take the time to get ready everyday like you're going to be ambushed by over-zealous papparazzi the moment you step out your front door. When you spoil yourself like this by giving yourself ample time to get ready, you feel better about yourself, guaranteed. Love you all, hope you're doing well. Remember, take it one day at a time. That's all it takes. One day at a time and work to love yourself for who you are in this moment.

EAT: eat/drink one or two things this week that you've been denying yourself. Go ahead, indulge a little.
PRAY: Work on your personal prayer. If you're not praying at all, pray before you go to bed. If you are praying, step it up a little and pray twice a day, once before you go to bed and once when you get up in the morning.
LOVE: Look in the mirror and tell yourself that you love you. Go on, do it. "I love you." Say it until you mean it. Doesn't matter if it takes a few minutes or a few hours to say it until you mean it, do it anyway. It's ok. Remember, GOD loves you, so why shouldn't you love yourself? He made you in HIS image.
