What Makes Me Feel Like A Million Dollars

Since becoming a mum, I think it's pretty fair to say that my ideas of what I enjoy doing in my spare time has changed a little.
 
If you'd asked me 10 years ago what makes me feel like a million dollars, I'd probably have given you a very different answer - being lavished with expensive gifts, spoiled with luxury holidays, spending days at top spas etc would all have made the cut I'm sure!
 
But these days I have much simpler indulgences which somehow end up feeling just as rewarding as if I'd actually hit the bigtime on free mobile slot sites!
 
Here are just a handful of things that make me feel like a million dollars during any given week:
 
 
*Finishing a hot cup of tea - especially during it's first bout of hotness, fresh from the kettle rather than on the second or third round in the microwave!
 
 
* A long hot shower with no interruptions - Usually these days its a choice between a quick shower, or compromising by taking a longer one but knowing its going to be interrupted by a child at some point!
 

*A visit to the hairdressers - forget indulgent spa days, just a visit to the hairdressers once every 6 months or so to have my highlights freshened up and my hair washed and dried within the same 12-hour period is quite the indulgent experience in itself these days! I step out of the salon feeling like the woman on those old Vidal Sassoon adverts!
 
*Pictures from the kids - it may sound corny but nothing makes me feel more special than when my little boy presents me with a picture he's drawn just for me!

What sort of things make you feel like a million dollars these days?

  2. If you fail it doesn't mean you are weak, you fail because there are things that are not meant for you or not meant to happen. Accept failures and take it as a challenge to become a better person. Visit my site for more information. Thank you and have a nice day.
