Guilty pleasure..is it just me or does anyone else find anything wrong with feeling guilty about finding things pleasurable? (Ashley I know we agree-ha!). I love it when I get a massage and when I get one I have no guilt about what so ever–trust! In my work I have to reaffirm this with many clients, particularly women all the time. Running has became one of my pleasures too; it’s my thing that I do for me to decompress, meditate, chill out, it’s my space. It helps me to be a better me. That’s why I miss when I can’t do it. Which is what I explain to many clients who think it’s some kind of crime to put themselves first when it comes to taking care of themselves; the first thing I hear is “I feel guilty”. Taking care of yourself and feeling good about is necessary it helps us to be better people, spouses, parents, friends, etc. We can’t run a car when the gas tank is empty why do we think we run ourselves when our tank is empty? If we are not taking care of ourselves we have nothing to give. So there is no need to feel guilty about feeling good about taking care of ourselves and finding it pleasurable to boot.
