Growing up on the shore I’m used to seeing these crabby babies in the summer time.
But with a little help from my buddies at Whole Foods Market- they made my dream come true in December.
I’m talkin’ about a crab party for the holidays.
Why not right?
It’s a luxury.
And I’m all about feeling worthy of luxury lately. It’s part of my quest to ‘Self Love’ and feeling worthy of treating myself to the little things that make me smile in life.
When we feel we are valuable, we surround ourselves with luxury. Comforts and pleasures beyond those needed for everyday living. Luxury is not a materialism; it doesn’t have to be a new car or a shinny ring. It can simply be a holiday candle, a piece of good chocolate, listening to good music. These luxuries cost little but mean so much.
Do you feel worthy of such luxury? Luxury is our natural state and as I take the time to work on ‘Self Love’ it’s important to remember every one of us should feel special.
You deserve all the good the world has to offer. By elevating your view of yourself, you elevate the quality of your life. Your outer world will echo your thoughts, beliefs and intentions that you are a special being- and worthy of abundance.
Practice living luxury today. Take some time to do something for yourself that you consider luxurious.
Take a walk or a bubble bath. Loose yourself in a good book or meet a friend for a tea. Cook up this warm crab soup.
Make this a habit; the more you welcome small luxuries into your life, the more you will recognize yourself as a worthy spiritual being worthy of love and abundance.
Today, treat yourself to a luxury.
My luxury today is crab soup and boy o’ boy is it good. A little bit expensive- but I’m worth it.
What’s your idea of treating yourself to luxury?
