I commented to another member this morning that yesterday here was a beautiful day. One of the things I did, aside from getting the oil in my motorcycle changed, was to get a haircut and a shave. I've never had a shave from a barber, what a wonderful experience. My face was wrapped in hot towels, rubbed with smelly oils, and massaged.
When I got home I proudly told my wife what I had done. I made her smell me to see if I really smelled like a new haircut. I told her how much it cost and she said "you know what, you deserve it. That's a great exemple of taking care of yourself."
I got news for you. If taking care of myself means falling asleep in a barber chair while my face is wrapped in a steaming towel and I can breathe in the scent of a calming oil, sign me up. I'm down with that!
Taking responsibility for my well being is ok. I encourage all that may read this post to make the time and nurture yourself. It's revitilizing.
I just so happened to get a haircut. Maybe you could go for a walk, dance, make some music, ask someone for a backscratch or a head rub. Whatever you do, know you're helping and supporting your healing process.
Best to all today.
