National Celebrate Yourself Week - HappyUP!!!

It's here! - August 24.....the beginning of the greatest non-official week long celebration
of the year!

Sure - it coincides with my birthday....purely coincidental. It starts on that day only to make
sure that I don't forget to remind YOU....... go out - and enroll and enlist in some EXTRA self care this week.

What is it that you don't do enough of - that really makes you happy?......pampering (like at a spa)?.....taking in nature?.....diving uniterrupted into a book for multiple hours?.......writing/ journaling your deepest thoughts?......time with a musical interest? with a dear friend?.....slipped a little lately on your meditation practices (a quiet mind is a WONDERFUL thing to indulge yourself with)?

What....what.....what? - is it that you KNOW you haven't been doing enough of lately?

C' KNOW what it is - now.....get out there and DO IT!.....and do a LOT of it!!!

I'm decking up my week - and I dare you........OVERLOAD yours.......

.....and...always remember - it's usually about the simplest of things

HappyUP!!! Day 1665

AKA: MY BIRTHDAY!!!! - and nothing could make me happier than turning this into a week of national holiday where all of my friends devote it to treating themselves better
