Here we are again! Staring the New Year down like a pair of bomb shoes you know you want but not sure you should get.
Im not sure if this question applies to just me, but why is it so hard to splurge on ourselves?!? We give and give and give all year long. Pouring ourselves into our families, our careers, our relationships, our community, hell even IG drama; but when it comes to pouring into ourselves, we hesitate.
”I’ll do it later.”
”I’ll get it for My Birthday.”
”There’s more important things to worry about.”
But what is more important than you? What is more important than your peace of mind and satisfaction?
We work hard to be able to put ourselves in a better state. Better state of Living, Better state of being, Better state of mind, but when it’s time to tap in to that place of better, we still need permission to do it!
Lets not step into the new year with this idea that our happiness is on the other side of something. You deserve that happiness, that luxury, that pleasure right now, Today! Because you deserve it.
You deserved it for getting them babies up every morning and out the door for school. You deserve it for waking up after experiencing that heartache and deciding to keep trying. You deserve it for putting up with your partners snoring. You deserve it for Being you.
I challenge you (and myself) to allow a day of self care once a week for your self. Take yourself on a date, treat yourself to a padicure or new hairstyle 😉, or get your self a gift, for no other reason but because you deserve to be Happy.
Take this as your permission to get the shoes!
