For those of you old enough to remember L’Oréal Paris commercials, you may recall that they changed the way women colored their hair with one short statement, "Because I'm worth it!"
Brilliant! No long list of benefits, no disclaimer about ammonia, no confusion about price, measurements or tint. It was directed to EVERYONE who wanted to be elevated to stardom!
But how do you know if you're worth it? Well, I submit if you're breathing, you are pretty much first in line for the accolades. But it's hard, isn't it? Remembering that simple formula? Time and time again I find myself taking shortcuts to my own self-care. A long, hot bath is often replaced with sitting too long at my desk. Long and silly phone calls to friends become quick texts promising a rendezvous soon. And of course, dinner morphs from a nourishing and luxurious event to a boiled egg and sliced carrots.
Well, just writing that makes me know I'm worth more than a root vegetable and a rubbery orb of protein! And last Friday I pulled out all the stops to create a fancy dinner at home with hubby and my dad by pan searing three beautiful filets, saute some colorful Swiss chard, and slicing a few little kiwi to make sure the plate was as lovely as possible. The recipe gives specific instructions as this is a lot going on at once, but comes together quickly. Check out the slide show and then step-by-step recipe below!
Why, because you ARE worth it!
