You Are A Special Occasion

Tuesday, 03 December 2013 19:41  by Jessica W.

We are right in the middle of the holiday season, a time when we savor the flavors of fall and winter; when we enjoy comforting spices and drinks that warm our fingers, soft scarves and wool coats that button to the nose.

This season, we seem to put in extra effort for everything. We eat chestnuts, desserts, charcuteries and meats that we may not enjoy any other time of year. This season, we make roast duck and indulge in thick, glorious wrapping paper and inventive table decorations.

For many of us, winter is a time of year when we put in extra effort to celebrate the season, as if the season is worth celebrating more than another. Yet this places us in a frame of mind that the time or season is more worthy of celebrating than ourselves – we are ignorable, the season is not. Perhaps it is time we indulge in our favorite foods yearlong, decorate luxuriously whenever we feel like it and wear our best clothes just because we are worth it.

Many women with depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder suffer from a lack of self-worth. Toxic relationships similarly erode a woman’s self-esteem. Part of residential treatment involves learning to love and honor oneself every day. This builds the positive attitudes to create a powerful life of joy and success, one in which every day is worth living.

This week, cook your very favorite meal in the world. Decorate your bedroom with flowers and rich fabrics. Buy a luxuriously-scented bath oil and indulge in self-time. Remember to celebrate yourself, because you are infinitely beautiful, extraordinary and worthy of love.
