I have a (deeply engrained) tendency to get the work done first, then have fun after.
Listening to an episode of Glennon Doyle’s podcast, We Can Do Hard Things, I remembered that I am not alone in that🙏🏼 AND that I was currently running said script!😳
So this morning instead of getting work stuff done so that we can go to the beach and have fun on Sunday – 48 hours later!🤦🏻♀️ – I gave myself an hour to have fun now.
I got out my essential oils and starting blending. I love making stuff!😍
I now have 4 bottles of blends with different coloured labels to enjoy everyday,
- Women’s Wisdom: frankincense, rose & neroli
- Wake-up: grapefruit, lemon & ginger
- Loving service: cedarwood, geranium & frankincense
- Relax: lavender, chamomile & geranium
And I smell great too!😉
Oh, and after school pick up today we’re heading to the beach for a swim and supper instead of waiting until Sunday!
What could having fun look like for you this weekend?🤔
