It’s still surreal to me that I’m debt free. It’s only been a solid 3 months and I feel like I’m just beginning to focus on self care. I held off on buying things for myself because I didn’t feel ‘good enough’ probably because of debt. Weird. I know. Usually people don’t care and just buy things anyway. But after reading so many blogs on finance, I just couldn’t bring myself to buying extras like skincare or makeup.
Anyway, skincare opened up Pandora’s box for me. It became a healing ritual. A time to relax and a time to just pamper myself. Well I’ve been getting used to all the pampering lately. In fact, I’m loving it! It got me into wearing more lipstick and putting on more eye makeup. Obviously when I’m feeling a little extra I’ll do these things, but really, skincare got me to focus on myself at a time when others are just vying for my attention (you know just modern life whizzing on by).
I also realize I need to focus on my overall health and fitness. Studies show how important exercise is for longevity and more importantly overall well-being. I’ve been trying to find ways of working out from home for the past few years, and nothing beats the gym for me. I just need to drive to a place, hop on a machine, and workout. I don’t want to think about logistics anymore. It’s just one less thing to think about when life is already chaotic as it is.
Hopefully this year will be the start to a healthier lifestyle and to a healthier mindset. Happy weekend folks! I’ll just be over here studying and will probably have better blogs posts in two weeks after my test. Cheers!
