As mentioned in an earlier post, I had set yesterday aside for a TTDS post on indulgence. My grand plan at the time was that I would actually spend the first part of the week sampling a variety of treats with the goal of finding something wonderful to tell you about – you know, in the interest of thorough research. I’m nice like that.
And then Thursday arrived and I realized I hadn’t actually had a treat that week. No icey umbrella beverage, no decadent chocolate wonderfulness, no fancy lotion or potion or polish to sigh over. If I may be quite honest I don’t think I even got to watch an entire television program uninterrupted.
How did that happen? And is it happening to you?
I have discovered that I am spending my time completely consumed with day to day life, moving from crisis to crisis, from task to task, from detail to detail. The ultimate indulgence for me would probably be 15 minutes of solitude, quiet and reflection. (Which is not to say one can’t quietly reflect with an umbrella beverage or decadent chocolate wonderfulness, but baby steps here, people… baby steps).
So, my mission now is to carve out that time for myself… to take some private moments each day most days as often as possible to refill my spirit.
How do you refill your spirit? Is there an indulgence that makes your soul say ahhhh! What will you celebrate today?
