Day 12: Create a personal paradise worthy of Aphrodite

Today’s affirmation –

“I am worthy of my own personal paradise – a place for renewal and rejuvenation.”

Today’s prayer –

“Divine Creator, please change me into someone who honours herself by surrounding herself with space that reflects her inner beauty and divinity.”

So today I’m supposed to do an activity in 15 mins flat… declutter a drawer or make a small space pretty. Hmmm. All the drawers are tidy or empty due to our building work. Let’s opt for the pretty space. I had it all set out in my mind. Candles and nice bath products for my bathroom, a pretty box to hold all my luxuries, and then, decorate the sundeck with lanterns and blankets on the chairs. I fancied watching the stars this evening.

And then life happened. The glazier turned up to install our new French doors. We’ve been waiting for a while to have them installed, but did he have to pick today?! Soon my writing area reverberated to the sound of demolition and installation. How noisy are hammer drills?! I have to say, the end result is wonderful. I can already picture Sunday lunch with the doors open, sun shining, and the garden beckoning. But right now, back in the real world, it is raining hard. Looks like we goddesses are at the mercy of the weather. I won’t be decorating the deck later and the stars will remain veiled behind thick clouds.

Ah well. My silver lining came in the form of an afternoon in the beauty salon. A whole afternoon in a room fit for a princess, with relaxing music, luxurious products, and gentle hands. Let the weather do what it will while I lie back ane enjoy every minute of pampering.
