This year I want to do things that make me feel good; pretty, girly things. Things that make me laugh, dance, and smile. I have chosen a selection of not-so-traditional holidays to celebrate this year. Just because they make me smile, and… Today is National Bubble Bath day! So dust off your scented candles and get out your fanciest soap for a dip in your very own tub. Lol, but really this is actually a real holiday. Not like Thanksgiving or anything like that, but it is definitely a time to celebrate.
Why not take a leisurely soak for no other reason than a holiday celebration? Cool thing is, since you’ll most likely be celebrating alone (or maybe not, idk, whatever floats your rubber ducky) there’s no one to judge you on how fancy or simple you get at bath time. It’s a time to relax and wind down, or just appreciate and care for your self. Choose a nice bubble bath and light a candle, play some music, or read a book. Again, do whatever relaxes you. It doesn’t have to be a long drawn out process. Do what best suits you.
Baths not your thing? Make shower time extra special.
I am currently reading “I am Victory” by first Lady Victory Vernon
I like candles and a book when I bathe. Afterwards I follow up with a shower and lotion/body oil.
What’s your favorite way to indulge on National Bubble Bath Day?
It’s New Year’s Day! You know what that means. The party is over, 2016 is behind us, and this year is full of possibilities. Most of us want to do something to improve ourselves so we say things like “new year, new me” and set resolutions that we will throw out the window as soon as they are an inconvenience. Setting goals is great, but let’s call it that. Why should we resolve to do anything that we haven’t already accomplished, especially if we’re only resolving to do something because it’s the start of a new year.
New Year’s resolutions sometimes roll over into the next years resolution and end up being things that just are never accomplished. Let’s end the cycle of disappointment in ourselves. Instead of resolutions, I vote that this year we all agree to aim higher. If we all work a little bit harder to make ourselves a little bit better then maybe, just maybe, the world would become a better place. I’m not saying that we will end wars or end hunger, but maybe you’re a little happier because you try daily to be someone that you can be proud of. An enhanced version of yourself.
That’s my aspiration for this year. To aim higher, be better, and never stop trying. I am taking every moment of every day to improve me. What else do I have to do? Sit around and be grumpy all year, then complain in December about how much 2017 sucked and how next year will be different. Nah, I’ll pass. I’m sure 2017 won’t be perfect. I, of course, want to succeed but this year I refuse to bite off more than I can chew.
If I fail it will be with grace, I will learn from it and try again. I hope you will too.
