Treat yo’ self—if you are Parks & Rec fan, you are well acquainted with this phrase. But TV show aside, I’m surprised on how this saying has caught on. I feel like I keep seeing it creep up in unexpected places.
Originally, I designed this printable card because I couldn’t find a good card for a bachelorette party. I wanted to design something fun and sweet that could be used for situations like that, but also still be versatile enough for mother’s day or a birthday.
Now, this design makes me think about what I’m learning lately…which even typing, kind of sounds weird. I’m learning to “treat my self”?
In all honestly, I’m learning to slow down and enjoy things. I’ve created the terrible habit of constantly updating the to-do list in my head. I’ll be at the gym, or even church, and it seems that as soon as my mind has a moment to relax, everything I haven’t done keeps popping into my brain.
I’m embarrassed to say it because I so value being present, especially in this crazy phone-addicted world we live in. But I learning if I don’t practice the discipline of white space and play, my brain will continue to be addicted to my to-do list.
All to say, the “Do Not Disturb” sunhat in the illustration means something more now 😉.
Enjoy the card! I hope you are able to share it with someone that could enjoy some down time 😘.
