treat-yourself

I had a killer Saturday you guys.

Calvin and I perfected the brunch date - we got a fruity waffle meal and an egg/bacon/hash brown plate and SHARED THEM. He said we’re a gross old married couple I said we’re just perfect at branching.

Then we went shopping, I exchanged a shirt I got for my birthday and ended up also buying a new purse for myself. An expensive purse. Well, it was $130, which is about $100 more than I normally spend on a purse but it’s a genuine leather fossil purse and it’s a beautiful chocolate brown and it was originally $268 and Calvin is pitching in for it because, and I quote, “you never really treat yourself to anything extravagant” and I fell in love with it too hard.

I hope you’re having great weekends!

I would like to request that you take good care of yourself and drink plenty of water and maybe treat yourself to a nice dinner tonight *tosses glitter*

Sometimes, you’re not okay. And that’s okay. Sometimes, you don’t know why you’re not okay, and that’s okay, too. Sometimes, you do know, but there is nothing you can do to change things, and that’s okay. Sometimes there is, but you are not ready to act yet. And that’s okay.

Taking care of yourself when you’re not okay, is important. Self-care involves much more than pretty-smelling salt-baths, or treating yourself to a new toy. Real self-care is an ongoing series of action-oriented tasks that consistently send an important message to the self, others, and the universe-at-large:

I AM OKAY. I AM WORTHY. I AM CAPABLE, VALUABLE, AND TRUE. I LOVE MYSELF ENOUGH TO DO SOMETHING EVERYDAY THAT PROVES IN A REAL WORLD WAY, THAT MY LIFE HAS VALUE. THAT WHAT HAPPENS TO ME, MATTERS. THAT WHAT I FEEL, WHAT I LOVE, WHAT I DESIRE DEEP WITHIN IS WORTH PROTECTING. AND I WILL. I AM.

A cycling series of self-care actions you can take on a regular basis to send these loving and empowering messages to yourself may include, but is most certainly not limited to:

Doing the dishes. Balancing your checkbook. Meal planning and preparing. Brushing your teeth, hair and skin. Getting dressed. Walking barefoot. Stretching. Singing. Wailing. Talking. Staying silent. Writing. Creating anything at all. Withholding judgement. Doing the laundry. Going grocery shopping. Affirming the present moment, and everything that sits with you there. Smelling a flower. Remembering reverence. Recognizing beauty wherever you find it. Dancing. Dipping your body in water. Sleeping. Gazing at the sea. Filing your paperwork. Addressing any physical discomfort or health concerns. Making an appointment, and showing up for it. Making a date, and showing up for it. Making plans with friends, and showing up for it. Drinking good water.

Some days, when you’re not okay, it may take all the strength you can muster, to do one thing to love yourself. And that’s okay. Wash those clothes. Do those dishes. It’s okay. Maybe you can do more tomorrow. Maybe not. And that’s okay.

Hey, I asked you about the enneagram while back. You said that it explains your personality. But I thought about it and I think healthy levels of your type are your personality. And unhealthy levels are your ego. What do you think about that?

I feel that they are all your personality, one is healthy and one is unhealthy, but both your personality. I think that if you are stressed or not treating yourself like you need to it is simply other aspects of the personality that show up and the ego is separate from that. The personality is from the real self and the ego is a false mask that the real self puts in to get what it lacks and needs: love. I do feel that the ego will show up more if you are unhealthy and so I think you are in the right track, but not fully there.

I Incense: List your three favorite scents.

Lavender,Apple, and Peppermint

Roots: How do you ground yourself or recharge?

I close the curtains, turn of the lights, I put a record on, lie down on my bed and close my eyes, until I fall asleep. Or I dance around my room because dancing is <3.

Silk Sheets: Any ways you treat or spoil yourself?

I grocery shop, and go around aisles for hours, somehow I like smelling fruits and looking at furniture. I buy books, and read between the bookstore shelves for hours too. 

Dragons: What makes you feel powerful, what breathes life into you?

My poems. My clothes. My red lipstick. My plants. The sky, and this one particular street down the block when it’s being hit by the sun in the morning.

Soup: Comfort food?

I am very addicted to Chao Fan and Buchi. 

The Moon: What’s your favorite thing to do at night?

Read. Sometimes nothing at all. I just sorta like being silent at night.

Lace: Your favorite things to wear?

My coats and scarfs. My black and grey tights, and my little black dresses.

Honeybee: Name something positive you have done for yourself or someone else in the last two weeks.

I painted something and wrote letters. 

Felines: Something that makes you feel better after a hard day?

A long walk. A long conversation with someone, anyone. 

Lollapalooza South America’s editions’ 2017 line up will be revealed this Wednesday! Kinda nervous because a) I still have not bought my pass. I bought a ridiculously expensive high-waisted skinny jean but hey you gotta treat yourself sometimes and b) I hope TDCC and Years & Years is there. 
Not really into the possible headliners but I just love hanging out with friends out there. Fun times.
