I don't do selfish things, just for me, very often. Whenever I get into a place in my life where things seem to be falling apart, the counselor usually asks what I'm doing to take care of myself, and I'm always a little stumped by that.
Selfish things today? I ate a bag of peanut M&Ms and didn't share a single one with my grandchildren, even though they were in the same room. (I was sneaky and eating them out of my hoody pocket.) I sewed a really pretty new BSA patch on my den leader uniform. And now I'm going to go upstairs and give myself a foot rub with lavender hand lotion.
(The rest of the day, you ask? Laundry, groceries, pay bills & balance checkbook, plan lessons, grade papers, Christmas shopping, sewing projects for Christmas and some mending for the Palshikar grandkids.)
I wanted to go for a walk, but I didn't. I need to be more selfish, I guess. But the M&Ms were a nice treat, and I do like that patch. And the foot rub will be lovely.
