On day 202 of my 366-day self-care challenge, I bought myself a gift.
I know, I know. This post is rather ironic since I just wrote about window shopping yesterday.
Yes, I bought something. My self-care practice for the day was to buy myself a gift.
I’m a sucker for unique pieces of jewelry, and any time I stumble across a one-of-a-kind piece, I just can’t help myself. While taking a friend around to some of my favorite local shops, I noticed a few bracelets that were made from old typewriter keys.
As a writer, there was no hope of me leaving without one.
Sometimes buying yourself a little something is a fun way to say “thank you” to yourself.
Giving yourself a gift doesn’t have to involve something of monetary value, of course. You could just as easily gift yourself with an evening walk or a couple of hours to read that book you’ve been having trouble getting through.
What have you given yourself lately?
