Last night I wandered up to a different kind of bar, one I’m coining….The Bathtub Bar.
Bar carts are the “old-is-new” rage right now, and I personally prefer vintage for price and more interesting vibe.
It was nearly two years ago we finally dove head-first into a master-bath reno, one I’d been visioning for 7 years since moving in with Ron and the boys. It was the final frontier in our testosterone-filled home, and I couldn’t wait to soak in luxury.
Pinterest not yet the rage, I tore out magazine pages galore of tubs, tiles, and towels. The tub with it’s jewelry overhead (a.k.a. chandelier) turned out to be my pièce de résistance. Like a beautiful white sculpture she graces the room.
I’m not sure what it is about taking a bath however, it always seems a bit too time consuming, or so I’ve thought, so sculpture beauty sits empty most the time.
Until last night… a slight cold nip in the air and a longing to relax, I soaked away the stress of the last week. Reaching over to my little bar area laden with lovelies and treats for the face, water, and feet, I was reminded…
So often we miss out on special perks we’ve worked hard for, be it vacation days, lunch hours, or moments alone to push stress down the drain. We tell ourselves there’s no time, or it’s too inconvenient, when a few minutes of planning could make for refreshment and new motivation, well-deserved if not essential.
What makes your heart sing, relax, motivate, and energize? Do you have refreshment rituals you prioritize? How can you allot even a few moments daily for restorative measures? Do them regularly and soon they’ll become your must-do essentials, bar none.
