Be your own best friend

If you want to love somebody else, you need to love yourself first. Do you love yourself? Or do you find that selfish? I don't.. find it selfish, I mean. I do love myself. I learned that lesson a few years ago. It is important you know. To love yourself. Take good care of you, before you are able to care care of someone else. Pamper yourself. In no particular order:
Go to the hairdresser more often than planned.
  • Take a foam bath.
  • Have a manicure or a pedicure (or both if that makes you feel better).
  • Spend too much money on a glamourous outfit without an occasion to wear it.
  • Create an occasion to wear that fabulous outfit.
  • Shave your legs until they are extremely silky smooth (my male readers may skip this one).
  • Get a turbo tan.
  • Laugh your heart out over nothing.
  • Get advice from a stylist and change your look completely.
  • Have an expensive Latte with extra milk foam and hazelnut flavor at Starbuck's and enjoy it with your eyes closed.
  • Shoes. Buy new shoes. One pair. Two pairs. Maybe three. Four if you're desperate. Shoes always do the trick.
  • Rearrange your wardrobe. Throw out everything you haven't worn in the last year. The emptiness of your dressroom will make you feel a whole lot lighter.
  • Throw out your scale and don't bring it back inside.
  • Buy a doorsize mirror and admire yourself. Praise your good points and forget about the minor ones. Tell yourself you look real nice.
  • Yes, it's okay to get a new purse. Doesn't matter you have 15 already. That one has a totally different color, really.
  • Have your car washed by hand. Interior can be done as well. Ask for an oriental fragrance.
  • Smile at yourself!
  • Give yourself a pat on the shoulder and tell yourself you're doing pretty well.
  • Call a good friend and arrange a pleasant outing.
  • Sit on a terrace and enjoy a glass of cold Chardonnay, reading your latest eBook.
  • Take the dogs for a walk and enjoy their happiness for taking them out.
  • Don't do this all in one day.
