You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. – Buddha
When was the last time you got a nice surprise in the mail?
When was the last time you shouted yourself some cute, comfy new underwear?
When was the last time you took time to try new natural beauty products?
Do you throw the “on special” moisturiser into the trolley while whizzing through the supermarket?
Or perhaps this sounds familiar – “Dear Julia, your New Year’s resolution is to treat yourself better and find some ‘me time’. Love, from Julia.”
Treat yourself with respect and kindness, you are deserving of life’s beautiful things and as for me, personally, I am a huge proponent of finding pockets of self care where we can. Like you, I am a busy mum, I have to carve out space in my everyday too, just to brush my teeth and cook a meal uninterrupted.
Why do we rarely actually follow through with resolutions to make more time for ourselves? Because we think we don’t have time. Well, we are here to tell you, yes you do – you need to carve out that time and grab it with both hands, for the whole family’s sake.
It can be difficult to overcome these deeply ingrained patterns of thought in your own mind. Right now, I’d say I’m making progress allocating time to myself. As each month whizzes by, I see the value of investing financial means on myself and I work with women who wholeheartedly believe and support taking a step away to replenish and restore oneself, so why don’t you? It’s so important.
That’s where this amazing company MyTreat comes in. They are a hardworking team of women who make it super, super easy to treat yourself. MyTreat was born as a way of delivering beautiful new underwear to deserving women, (that’s all of us, by the way). They found there was a huge gap in the market for a a surprise box of beautiful, comfortable and delicious treats each and every month.
Women can subscribe for three, six or nine months and the company has grown exponentially in only two years, now sending out 1,500 MyTreat boxes to women all over New Zealand.
