I don't remember where I read this, but it was around high school. I can't remember if it was a magazine, a book, or a poem. All I remember was the message, and that's what counts.
CELEBRATE YOURSELF EACH DAY.
Most days you have to find a reason to celebrate. Not everyday is a holiday, an anniversary, a birthday, etc. Since that day, I've made sure to make an occasion for myself daily. Maybe I'll have a nice breakfast. Maybe I'll give myself a compliment. Maybe I'll bake myself a pie. Maybe I'll get dolled up for no good reason. Maybe I'll just sleep an extra hour.
I've found that this extra umph always makes my day. It always gives me something to look forward to. Now, this isn't about being a lush, a glutton, or a narcisstic. This is about taking care of yourself and having a little reward for working hard. It also helps prevent getting burnt out, which easily happens when so many people do it all these days.
Try it for a week and I guarantee you'll feel much better. And plus, winter is coming up, so we all need a little perking up before it gets too dreary.

My treat today: A nice, long lilac bath a little something like this.
