When’s the last time you took…

Yesterday, I did something we too often fail to do. I honored myself. I planned time just for me. It wasn’t snatched or hurried or some breakdown with panic associated with it — I simply decided to give myself the time and attention.
I honored my spirit and the body that houses it. The form that took for me just then was a long and luxurious bubble bath. I used scented bubbles and oils. I performed all the rites and feminine rituals that are usually reserved for a date or some other special occasion where men or sex might be involved.
And I did them for no one but myself.
From head to toe, I was pampered. After finishing the bath, coating myself with soothing, scented lotion, and ensuring I was baby soft — I went to bed, happy, calm and peaceful.
When was the last time you took a bath? An honest to goodness, soak in the tub, read a book, light the candles bath? Or engaged in some other special time consuming treat?
If you never pamper yourself, how can you expect someone else to think of doing so for you?
