This morning I just needed extra time to get out of bed. I woke up to my alarm but definitely needed extra time to wake up. I should have known that sleeping through the night Tuesday night would mean having a hard time falling asleep Wednesday night. Needless to say, I will not be cooking breakfast this morning. I am taking a “cheat day” for breakfast. By cheat I mean I am not cooking. I am opting for an RX Bar from Trader Joe’s instead. Trying something new BUT most importantly it is Whole30 Compliant!!
I have also struggled with even skin tones and with how I perceive my skin. I don’t think it is any secret that a guilty TV pleasure is watching The Bachelor/ette. I even listen to some podcasts by the contestants. Many of them advertise for Bioclarity. I can honestly truly notice a difference between my twice a day ritual of using Bioclarity and just using soap. I am sold on it! I have always felt it selfish when I spend extra time on frivolous things like a face wash routine, or make up, or extra time on hair. I felt like there may be more important things to do than spend this time on myself. This is ridiculous. It feel it is just fine to spend this selfish time. I don’t need to feel guilty on something so stupid. Plus, as my parents have quoted, “Even a barn door looks better painted.”
So today on my journey, I have decided it is okay to take extra time for myself… it is okay to eat a bar for breakfast instead of cook (every once in a while). It is okay to spend time twice a day to make myself feel beautiful. I deserve it!
