The Personal Experiment

When’s the last time you took…

Posted by sibbia on December 17, 2007

Bubbles, Soap Bubbles, Bubble BathYesterday, 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?

    This is so beautiful. Reminds me of “Keep your home everyday as though you are having company”.

    It’s great that you took time for your self. This should become a regular practice for you! You are right, you must take care of your self!

  3. Yes, it can have a soothing effect. My bath time is my “idle” time. I try to make this a regular habit but.. well… 😉

    Whew, it’s been longer than I can remember since I last took a bath! Well, I of course take showers every day but that’s not the same thing! Our bath tub is out-of-order and in our bathroom we only have a shower stall. We’ve been planning on putting in a new bathtub in the main bath, though, so maybe after all that remodeling is over I can finally light a candle and relax in a nice hot bubble bath! I used to love to stay in them until the water turned cold!

    Hope you’re doing well, Sibbia. I’m glad that you took time out for yourself. You deserve it!
