Saturday DO

DO: indulge a guilty pleasure.

give in to something sweet

…or salty


coddle yourself with breakfast in bed


enjoy a nerdy movie


lose yourself in a romance novel


laugh at bad reality TV


belt the words to a cheesy pop song


rock a knock-off


laugh at a completely inappropriate joke


waste time Facebook stalking (gotta make full of use of modern technology, right?)


revert to child-like games


treat yourself to yet another pair of shoes

I once asked my father if he was going to give up something for lent. He responded innocently through a thick Italian accent (in the way only he can do), “there are already so many denials in life – why should I choose to give up yet another thing?” I laughed. This is a man who wants nothing but to enjoy decadent meals followed by desert, to disappear for hours on a long walk, or to be a kid and play with his toy trains. Often what life requires – a trim waist, hard work, maturity – denies him of these simple things. Obligations can become laborious and exhausting. If you never let go to do what YOU want, you’ll go crazy. It’s good for the soul to lose the control and indulge once in a while. They say life is short, and at the end of it all, you want to be able to look back and know that not only did you work hard, but that you also enjoyed everything it had to offer.
