This month I was MADE to go get a mani & pedi to treat myself and to REEEElax... It was honestly the least relaxed I have ever been. Over the years my husband and friends have given me spa gift certificates for messages and facials. I guess they figure with 4 kids and all I do I need to take time for me and chill out. Yet there in lies the problem, with 4 kids I never get a chance to do any of this. I also don’t like people touching me, my feet or my face…this also poses a problem.
So I started to think about what relaxes me, and I thought and thought and thought and came up empty. I have no clue what relaxes me, I really don’t think I like to be relaxed. I prefer do be doing something that gets my juices going, maybe a nice meal out with some fab girlfriends, good food, good wine and great conversation. This gives me pleasure and maybe with pleasure comes some relaxation.
Mindlessly browsing through a kitchenware, liquor or shoe store, these all excite me and make me feel Fabulous…is feeling Fabulous being relaxed?
I think doing something you love is relaxing…and I don’t feel you need to be still, chanting, buffed or polished.
One of my favorite things to do is people watch…and the best place I have ever done this was on a cafe patio in Paris, sipping Biere Blanche in the middle of the summer and watching all the Fabulous people go by. I think I sat there for hours…may have also been because the Biere Blanche was going down so smoothly.I was truly relaxed.
So what do you to to REEELAX… ? Can you REEELAX…?
