How do you celebrate yourself? Well for starters you could get a massage, a pedicure or a new hairstyle, just spend time treating yourself like the Queen (or King) you are! If you are running low on money, that is not an excuse to avoid Celebrate Yourself Day! You simply need to be a tad more creative. Make yourself a delicious dinner that is healthy for your body and tasty for your soul. Buy one pretty cupcake or make a cupcake and give the others to your friends or neighbors. Take that yoga class you have meant to take for years now. Do something that makes you happy!
Be Kind to Yourself!
Many of us feel unworthy of love. We look in the mirror and see weight issues, scars or an unattractive nose or thousands of other physical problems. But the truth is we all must spend time finding our outer AND inner beauty. This is essential to happiness! If we don’t do that we send vibrations out to the universe that only bring unhealthy people into our lives. And those people treat us poorly and reinforce our already negative thoughts about ourselves.
Regain Your Confidence
I know you have seen that one woman that at first glance doesn't look beautiful, but she walks with such confident sensuality that she IS beautiful. And you think to yourself, “Darn it! I want to feel like that!” Well, you can. But you must believe in yourself, and that will breed the confidence required to walk down the street with that graceful air of assurance.
I ask you to stop the insanity! (to quote a commercial from years ago) Be kind to yourself. Celebrate you on a day of your choosing. If baking is your idea of a good time, the recipe below is a great treat for you and loved ones on your day of self- love. Remember, love, starts at home and with you.
Happy Celebrate Yourself Day!
Love and Light,
This is my recipe for a decadent Celebrate Yourself Day Cupcakes.
Simple White Cake with Nutella Frosting:
2 cups of flour
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix butter, eggs, sugar, vanilla, almond and whipping cream. Then mix flour, baking powder and salt in another bowl. Then add dry ingredients to other mixture. Pour into a well-greased cup cake pan. Use cooking spray on the cupcake foil cups. Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes.
1/3 cup butter, softened
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and Nutella; mix in the confectioners' sugar, then slowly add whipping cream by the tablespoon and beat until smooth. This is a bit vague, because some people want a stiffer frosting while others like it a bit creamier so go with what you like! This is YOUR day!
