“Wise ideas packaged just for you.”
So, everyone’s got their own version of what luxury means to them. I’m referring to treating ourselves here…or else we could go on endlessly about the actual meaning of luxury. Julia Cameron, the author of the Artist’s Way, puts it brilliantly. She talks about taking yourself on what she calls an ‘artist date’ to do something of interest that awakens your inner child and imagination.
The idea is to do whatever makes you feel alive; whatever makes you feel like gold; whatever makes you feel luxurious within. It doesn’t have to be extravagant. It could be a coffee date at a new café, painting, test-driving a fancy car, whatever… Find what that means to you and take an artist date as regularly as you can.
So, go do something luxurious…be wise about it of course.
