I’m a firm believer in treating yourself. While “Parks and Recreation” may have coined the phrase “treat yo’self”, I have been promoting it to friends, family and colleagues for years. I work hard every day, and serve my students the best I can, so I feel worthy of a nice treat once in a while. Sometimes it’s a manicure, or buying myself breakfast before work, but other days, particularly bad days, I may go for a big ticket item. Pictured above are the things that I covet as we enter 2014. I accepted the fact that I’m a materialistic person a long time ago, and I’ve moved on. I may be liberal, and wear a lot of moccasins, but I truly do love the finer things. Has anyone seen that pillowcase that reads, “I lied about being the outdoors type”? I don’t even bother lying. I’ll walk around outside with you and enjoy some sunshine (warm or cold), but that’s the extent of it. What have you accepted about yourself in this past year? What do you hope to accept about yourself as 2014 rapidly approaches? Do you like to treat yourself? What should make my wish list for February?
