Day 66 of #100daysoflovingmoney
First of all I know I am making some headway on my money mindset because not only did I allow myself to indulge in a haircut but I also allowed myself to get it highlighted AND Loved Tipping my lady !! I knew this was a turning point.
The other thing that stood out to me today is this word SELFISH. That word has not been a word I have always embraced with such gratitude. This word had a negative meaning to me because it was usually followed by Selfish Brat--Spoiled--Etc.
I found that as I got older I would feel guilty if I spent money on luxuries like getting my hair done, or buying clothes. I would still do them from time to time but not without a BIG heapful of guilt attached --Self induced mind you !
I started to think about that word this past week and began to see it in a new light. I don't know if that is what made spending money on hair today so much easier or if it has been all of this money mind or both. I don't really care. I just loved that I could do something for myself with NO GUILT for the first time in a long time.
I started to understand that selfish is actually quite a powerful trait to have !! When your selfish you understand your cup needs to be filled first so you can freely give to others. When your selfish you don't need to live by the rules of other people. You can live a life that your called to and not one that you "have" to. When your selfish you can live a life of inspiration instead of desperation to change something. When your selfish you get to listen to your inner voice and not the voice of others.
I could go on and on but the point is that I took that word that had such a negative spin to me and I reminded myself that it could possibly be one of my favorite traits !
That spending money on something that made me feel good was OKAY, it was OKAY that is not the cheapest thing I could do for myself either. I may never be one to overindulge myself with beauty care but this seems like a great place to shift !
