28-Days of Self-Love (Day 26 Invest in YOU)

“With every experience, you alone are painting your own canvas, thought by thought, choice by choice.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

Choose joy, choose passion, and choose self-love!

Too often I see women spending money on every member of the family and not on herself. Believe me I have been there. One of my favorite purchases when I was learning this lesson was a large pack of colored markers that I used to doodle in my journal. Buying beautiful journals and colorful markers delighted my very soul.

When you invest in something that brings you joy, you are announcing to the universe that you are ready for self-love. Remember you are not taking away from others to spend on yourself; you are simply dividing the revenue more equally. Bring more joy into your life and purchase something that stimulates your senses and fills your heart with delight.

You are worth it!

Examples of things I purchase for the joy of it:

  • Essential oils (lavender, eucalypts and spearmint are my favorites)
  • Beautiful Journals and fancy pens or markers
  • Small bottles of perfume
  • Scented lotions
  • Weekend Getaway
  • New electronic device
  • Inspirational books
  • Angel statues (I adore everything angel)
  • Sparkly earrings
  • Flowers
  • Vacation to foreign land (I love to travel)
  • New bathing suit (summer)
  • Now you come up with your list!!!

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” ~ Oprah Winfrey
