The “life as MOM” is full of responsibilities. Parents almost always have something more to do on their schedules. When you’re pressed for time, then it seems frivolous to do things that aren’t necessities.
As important as it is to be responsible for our families and homes, it’s sometimes refreshing to do something that’s NOT necessary, like:
- getting a pedicure or manicure
- having a massage
- buying a new piece of clothing or lipstick, just because
- taking a bubble bath
- buying a bouquet of flowers
Something fun, unnecessary, “frivolous” can be a sweet treat to help you take a break from the to-do list.
Doing something frivolous is a great way to stop and smell the roses.
The days are long, but the years are short. I don’t want to miss them! For more short and sweet ideas on how to stop and smell the roses, to enjoy the little things in life, check out my 31 Days to Smell the Roses series.
