December Habit #29 Pampering is Not Selfish

Dear FlyLady,

I have 3 kids under 10 and just finished my master’s degree. To say the least the house could have been declared a disaster area. I have started to declutter and organize the house. I have been working really hard on getting into the routines, but always put everyone else before me. I would still be in my pajamas by the time my husband got home from work.

I was excited to see that this month is getting in the habit of pampering myself. I always have felt guilty about spending money on myself. Well I bought some pretty earrings and put on a pair every morning as part of my routine. They are a small thing which makes me feel pretty and loving myself.

I also arrange a date night for my DH and I. It had been over 6 months since our last one.

Well this morning my oldest daughter looked at me and told me I looked happy and pretty!!!!!

I will keep pampering myself now. It is not being selfish just making myself happy so I am a better wife and mother.

Thank you for bring chaos under control and putting a smile on my family’s face.

Melissa
