to yourself. today’s motto (i decided). to honor it, i bought myself a cookie on the windy trek back from the archive where i spent the morning doing research. normally i would deny myself the luxury, not because of the sweet factor (banish the thought), but because of a list of other self-imposed limits (mostly having to do with the plastic packaging and my general rule to not buy baked goods i could make myself). but today, i put those little voices aside, and indulged. and it felt good. getting out of the funk.
what will you do for yourself today?
It's good to relax the rules once in awhile. I feel myself getting uptight about things and then I realize it's sometimes good just to let it slide on the less important things.
I made some cookies today–what is it about cookies that make you feel better? Wish I could send you one. Have a beautiful day!
Yay for cookies. Sometimes you've just gotta cut yourself some slack. Hope your spirits lift soon!
oh yes….it is always good to have a bit of an indulgence now and again.
Good that you treated yourself, sounds nice to have that something sweet on your windy walk.
Today I am having lunch with my sister, just us, looking forward to it. 🙂
I hear you. Normally I don't let myself order and enjoy sweets/pastries because I feel guilty. But the other day, I ordered a banana nutella turnover – with no guilt whatsoever. It felt luxurious and every single bite was unbelievable. Treating yourself is so important.
I agree, sometimes you just need to buy that cookie. Or take that walk. Or make that phone call. Or watch that sappy movie.
Today it was a "make that phone call" day, I skyped with my college roommate who now lives in Switzerland.
i made chocolate chip cookies today and ate 4! 🙂 but i also walked 6 miles so i figure it evens out.
i think it can be easy to go overboard with rules; i have some if the same ones you do.
I agree on the not buying things easy to make yourself, but on Sunday I bought myself a shot of espresso and a big slice of key lime pie, which I never do. It was really, really good.
i ate 2 PIECES of the Peach Pie I bought at the Farmer's Market this past weekend. Not because of the lack of self-control, because it looked like it was going bad. Seriously.
I actually did it this past weekend:) I went shopping with a friend, and spent money I rarely spend on a few nice wardrobe pieces. It had been way too long, and the painting duds were doing nothing for this girls appearance:)
glad you ate a cookie:)
mmmm that cookie looks so good. hope your days are getting even more cheerful.
i had myself a nice nap this afternoon (actually J forced me into it). It was sooo worth it.
grad school can be stressful and research the worst! I always load up cookies and or bake during stressful semesters- its a way to be kind to myself 🙂
Actually I think I might go buy myself (and my OH) a cookie… We're going for sushi tonight which is definitely a being nice to ourselves treat! Great motto 🙂
I do need something good today. Hmmm, what will it be? Perhaps a cookie for me as well.
