Wake up and smell the...Citrus?
Sunday, March 04, 2012
An incident that happened a few years ago inspired me to write this blog.
I was in Bath and Body Works with my mother and we were shopping for some new scents. I love anything citrus-y but I refused to buy it because my hubby doesn't prefer those fragrances. He likes them sweet and heavy. I guess they remind him of me
. But I like things light and refreshing. Something to lift me up. Something hubby hasn't been able to do in many years.
So, I bought what he likes and mom just rolled her eyes and told me I was silly for doing so. "Buy what you like. What makes YOU happy." And she proceeded to buy what she liked and she was happy.
Me...not so happy.
But hubby...very happy.
Forward wind several years and I'm still doing things to make others happy.
So, today Sunday March 4, 2012 I vow to do something to make myself happy.
I'm going to BBW and I'm going to buy whatever citrus scent there is that makes me happy.
Most of you know that I'm remodeling my guest bathroom. I'm going to paint it a bright citrus-y shade. It could be lime green, lemony yellow, or tangerine orange. "Why?" I ask myself. "Why Not?" my alter ego (yes I have one and she's awesome!) says.
So, I'm off to make myself happy. It seems like a small step but hopefully it will make a BIG impact.
Make today so beautiful that it's worth remembering!
