Remember last week when I was pontificating about layers and how we all have so many layers ? If you didn’t get a chance to read it you can read it here. Well, it is important to be aware of layers every day and I found the perfect visual for that.
I got these wonderful shower steamers to use in the girls’ stockings this year but found out I had, as usual, overbought, so I had an extra pouch that I decided to just keep and use myself.
The directions are simply to pop one of these on the floor of your shower, not in the direct line of water spray, and let them dissolve and enjoy the fragrance as you shower. A little mini spa not unlike a bath bomb but in shower form.
I popped one in the shower and waited to experience the loveliness that package promised me.The package promised that this type were the type to energize me and trust me – I need some of that about now. So as I washed my hair and showered I waited to feel energized. And waited. I smelled no aromatic waves wafting through my shower.
Quite frankly I was disappointed. I picked up the little puck and noticed something I had not noticed before.
Ah, yes, there it is. A layer. Something that I had not noticed on the one I had placed on the shower floor because it was shrink wrapped so tightly that it did not look like there was anything on the shower steamer at all.
Now I went back and looked at that package and nowhere did it have instructions to take the little wrapping off but honestly I guess I should have been more observant and smart enough to take that protective layer off. Now I know. Now my next shower using my cute little shower steamer will be aromatic and I will emerge energized. Or at least I hope so.
So what about you? What layer do you need to take off today to feel energized? Hopefully it is as easy as taking the plastic film off of a shower steamer.
