Pamper yourself! You deserve it.

Being a mom usually makes can sometimes make you feel invisible. Yes you have that unconditional love from your child, and I know that there isn't a better feeling. But still, its hard to lose sight that you are still a person. I was reading the Self magazine the other day and they had this cute little fill-in-the-blank love letter to yourself section. I thought it would be neat to share it with you guys because after I did it, it just made me think to myself, you are still the Jody you always have been, and it makes you smile.  So please say this to yourself, copy and paste it if you'd like, write it down.. just take a minute to yourself and remember how AMAZING you are as a person.

A love letter to.... you!

I'd like to take a minute to give thanks for me. I deserve (your favorite snack), a(n).. (item on your wish list) and the (reason you're wonderful) Award, becasue I truly rock. Remember earlier this year, when I did (good deed you did) and (awesome accomplishment)? Not to mention the fact that I frequently help (someone close to you) (task you help with) without (destructive action). Someone with my (good personal trait) and (another good trait) should be feted with (way to celebrate). So on November 16th, I vow to take at least a few hours for me. I'll (activity you enjoy), (way to pamper yourself) and give (person you love) a call, because we have the most (positive adjective) conversations. I may even wear my (favorite outfit) and refer to myself as (fun title) all afternoon. Starting now, I'll remember to acknowledge that I deserve time for (passion or hobby) and space for (ritual that leaves you calm and centered). In short, I'm going to enjoy the heck out of myself, on Self Day and every day!
