Christmastime is here, and you know what that means. You are making your list and checking it twice to figure out who was naughty or nice. However, while you’re thinking about everyone and your mother this holiday season, there should be one person on your list. I know what you’re thinking: one more person? Oh god.
That person should be you.
Okay, so I know that this is the time of year that everyone is pinching pennies to make sure you get enough gifts for everyone. However, hear me out. Black Friday is in a couple of days. Everything is pretty much on sale – including the things that normally don’t go on sale like NOOKS and iPads. This is the time that if you’re going to get anything to get it. After all, I don’t know about you, but I like getting my hands on a great deal.
With that being said, the holidays are about giving. Yes, I know. However, one of the most important things in life is to also self-care. And, sometimes, that is treating yourself to something nice, maybe indulgent, and thinking I deserve this.
Treating yourself can also be helpful in so many different ways too. For instance, have you been putting off getting some new clothes or something else that you may need. And, if Old Navy is having a sale on jeans that you wear and it’s a good price, then why not? Or, if you stumble across something awesome when you’re at the mall that you fall in love with and the price is right, why not get it?
This is my mentality here. Every day, we work hard no matter what we do. Therefore, we deserve something that makes us smile or makes life a little better. Therefore, we deserve to splurge – just a little bit – on something that could make you smile.
And, as said on Parks and Recreation, treat yourself. Trust me, you deserve it. Why? Because you are awesome.
