The last few weeks, I've been going through 'a rough patch'. This sort of thing is not really anything new. Heath issues pop up; emotional issues start taking up your time and your energy;minor personal problems become paramount.
For a rather nominal amount, I have arranged to have my florist Shirley surprise me with a bouquet for my kitchen every Friday. Shirley is a talented florist and a lovely woman. I return all over her vases to keep her prices (and charges to me) reasonably low.
There is something about having a lovely fresh floral arrangement that pleases me.
I also have manicures and pedicures at least once a month. This is no longer a luxury to me, but a necessity. I just don't feel "finished" unless my talons are done!
I sometimes feel guilty for spending money on me. And then I think, "Whoa! I'm not taking money from anyone else and if these things make me feel good, why not?" Yes, I could donate every extra dime I have to charity, but if I'm not happy, I don't feel very charitable either.
I think it's a win/win situatoin!
