Most of us understand the importance of a budget. Each month we carefully allocate our funds according to priorities. It comes as no surprise that we as parents are usually right at the bottom of the list. We most often look after everything and everyone else. Even when we have some spare money we are most likely to spend it on our children and spouse first. Sometimes we even allow other constraint prohibit us from treating ourselves. Excuses such as I do not have time, I do not deserve it, I am on a diet or I have to first do this or that are of the favourite ones we use not to spoil ourselves a little bit.
Well, today I am telling you that you MAY treat yourself. You are worthy of it. Spoil yourself with a spa treatment or a visit to the hair salon. Buy that pair of shoes you have secretly been saving money for. Eat that cake, one slice mind you, and enjoy it. Take a selfie and for the next three weeks of diet remember how good it tasted and look forward to your next treat.
Treating yourself once in a while can be a great mood booster and can help to alleviate stress. It means a happier you and that in return will have a positive effect on those people close to you.
So go ahead and indulge yourself a little.
