Permission – approval to do something.

So how good did you do last week “at treating yourself?” How often do you give yourself permission for a special treat? Do you feel you need others approval?

This week features the second half of Marisa DeMarco’s “25 Little Ways To Treat Yourself Better Every Day.” She writes, “Do you want to be made to feel special and loved? Isn’t it about time you let life work for you rather than you working for it? It’s all possible and within your reach…only if you are ready for it and willing to make the commitment to honor your needs.

  1. Don’t take anything personally; 99% of the time when someone says something to hurt you it’s their problem not yours.

  1. Make your bed a sacred space; it’s where you recharge, sleep, and pass intimate moments.

  1. Learn to feel comfortable in your skin; embracing imperfections and admiring your attributes.
  1. Remember that you deserve to be here on earth; you are an important and unique asset to the human race.
  1. Respect your limits. When you are full, stop eating. When you are tired, carve out more time for rest. When it’s time to go, leave in peace.
  1. Spend time with yourself; becoming your own best friend.
  1. Allow yourself at least one simple pleasure a day.

This week’s focus is about permission. Do you believe you deserve everything that you have? Is there anything you want that would make your life more comfortable? How would it feel to allow yourself at least one simple pleasure a day?
