Sometime ago (like four years to be exact), I did a post that was inspired by Glamour Magazine’s popular “Hey, it’s OK” section. Their section in the magazine and my previous post listed things it was OK to do and say that may normally seem ridiculous to others.
Glamour listed things like:
…to begin thinking about lunch at 9:35 A.M.
…to start your to-do list with a task you’ve already done.
…to shove it in the closet and consider your place cleaned. (NOTE – I totally do this!)
And I listed things like:
…. to decide that pair of shoes is worth your lunch for the week, if it’s a “to-die” pair that you may never see again, just happens to have one pair in your size, AND it’s on major sale - but ONLY like once every 4 to 6 months.
Basically, it was your chance to indulge in your indulgences.
And since it’s Friday and it’s the summer (a very indulgent time anyway), I figure let’s do it again! I had fun last time seeing what some of my readers came up with… let’s see what we can get this time.
I’ll start, of course.
Hey, it’s OKAY
… to spend an entire weekend vegging out and watching romantic comedies, Lifetime movies, and The Hills on repeat.
… to create to-do lists that include not just work, but also your planned fun activities for the week/weekend.
… to shamelessly flirt with the bartender so you can get free drinks anytime you go back to that bar.
… to call your friends and gush and giggle about how well that date went as soon as you get home.
… to buy yourself a faaaab pair of shoes (or 2 or 3) for your birthday. If you don’t treat yourself, who will?
… to do everything from wishing on a star, crossing your fingers, knocking on wood, and praying to God that the job you want comes through, the guy you want wants you back, and that dream you’ve held on to becomes a reality.
Alright folks, that’s some of mine. What about you all? Don’t be shy!
PS: Hey guys, I had a chance to do a guest blog post for my girl Michelle at Michelle’s Motivations. Check me out when you get a chance – 2 guesses as to what it’s about. Oh, I won’t make you wait – it’s about my love for shoes, but with an inspirational twist. Go now… go!! —-> For the Love of Shoes
