OK let's just admit it, we all treat our babies, just because we love them. Not because they did anything great, or amazing, not even because we are training them, just because they are so darn cute! And let's also admit that they have got us figured out because they know exactly where the treats are and precisely how to look extra sweet so they get one.
Never mind them looking extra cute, how about when they demand one? And they do. They will come into the kitchen or where every you keep the treats and literally post up in your way, with a look of conviction and complete determination. If you tell them to leave, the side eye is lethal! LOL. After all, don't we know that they deserve a treat just because they are them?
And, that's the lesson. Don't we all deserve a treat, to do something extra fun, too have a vacation, a staycation, a picnic, a night of romance, or whatever, just because we are us? When was the last time you allowed yourself to treat yourself? Sure that may mean having a sweet little something every once in a while, but treats don't have to have anything to do with food.
Being kind to yourself is a treat. Encouraging yourself is as delicious a morsel as any slice of cake could ever be. Allowing yourself to be pampered, is a treat. Hanging with friends, taking a day off, hiring a maid instead of you cleaning, these are all treats. Going for a hike and getting lost in nature, that's a treat you can enjoy with your fur babies!
I'm not suggesting anyone go overboard on the treats, balance is important, but. . . When it comes to you and me, I'm not sure we are in the practice of treating ourselves at all! Since we aren't furry and four-legged with big beautiful eyes that can look just the right mixture of puppy cuteness with a touch of poor baby, and since we don't have someone else ready to slip us a snack, we deserve to learn to treat ourselves.
Sometimes you just have to say yes and have a little ice cream!
Peace, Love and Wufs,
