Happy Labor Day (if you're celebrating in the U.S.)! No matter what your work is, I know you bust your butt, so I want to wish you an extra special sparkly day of rest and rejuvenation today. I slept in until 9 am. That's like huge for me. And I loved every minute of it!
This holiday also got me thinking. Why do we wait to celebrate ourselves? Why do we have a special holiday that only rolls around once a year to honor the fact that we work so hard?
If you know me, you know I love to indulge as often as possible. I'll order a glass of champagne on a Tuesday afternoon just because. I'll treat myself to a blow dry and a massage for no reason other than the fact that I want to feel good. I'll splurge on a gorgeous pair of sparkly, fancy heels because I think they're pretty. And you know what? All of those things I mentioned are usually met with a question or comment by others.
"Why are you drinking champagne today? Are you celebrating something?"
"Oooh, a massage and blowout. You're really spoiling yourself, huh?"
"Why are you buying those shoes? Do you have a wedding coming up?"
Why do we always have to have a reason? Why can't we just treat ourselves like a queen every chance we get?
I don't know about you, but I'm tired of making an excuse for myself. This is my lifestyle, and it feels damn good. I work my tail off and I refuse to wait until a national holiday to celebrate that.
I encourage you to start doing the same. How can you add indulgence, luxury, and glamour to your life? Say it out loud and declare it to The Universe! I want to see you sparkle every day. You are a Champagne Girl, aren't you? ;)
