Today’s Gem of Gratitude #105

Today I am thankful for spa services. Sometimes my friends and I become so bogged down with all of the things that we have going on in our lives that, on occasion, we need a de-stressing activity. And one of the activities that we enjoy doing is going to the spa and partaking of the varied services that they offer, including facials, massages, and the like.

Getting a massage or a facial might seem like a small thing, but it’s not only about experiencing the physical act of having your muscles massaged and the toxins dislodged, it’s also about having that time to relax, take your mind off of things, and just breathe. If it were not for those brief moments of leisure many of us would likely run ourselves ragged.

Ideally, we would naturally remind ourselves of the fact that we need to take time for ourselves, time to relax, on a regular basis, but as is the case with many people we are so focused on making sure that others have what they need and on handling the numerous responsibilities that we have in our lives, that we allow the need to take care of ourselves to fall by the wayside.

Thankfully, life has a way of bringing those moments of self-nurture and relaxation to us, especially when we are too busy to seek them out ourselves. So, when you find yourself encumbered by the many responsibilities that have found their way to the doorstep of your life, do not forget to allow those moments of leisure and relaxation to find their way in too. #lovebythedrop
