Money doesn't grow on trees. Gold can't be found at the end of a rainbow. Sorry to burst your bubble. Life's hard. Surprise!
Some days at work or school seem endless. You've got a big project that's due. You've got a to-do list that just got 5 items longer. The world doesn't always hand you presents wrapped in shiny paper with a big red bow. Sometimes we need to give ourselves the present.
Today I went to buy a small holiday gift for someone. I walked in the store with the intention of walking around, trying to find just the right thing. Instead I came upon a bargain book section. AWESOME! I walked around for a good 30 minutes finding 3 books that were each under $6. The kind of book I really like to read, and one was by a favorite author.
Later that night I realized that sometimes we just need to give ourselves a present. Not rewarding yourself just because, but giving yourself something because you deserve it. Maybe it's a new book, a piece of cake or just allowing yourself a couple hours to do nothing.
Life isn't always going to do it for us... so once in awhile, give yourself a present.
