So, two important things happened this week:
Spring officially started
I had a birthday
I love, love, love my birthday and I still get as excited as I did when I was a child.
No it wasn’t a ‘special milestone’ birthday, but isnt every birthday special, and a milestone in itself?
I’d say so.
- One more year of living, (which for me is an achievement considering my near misses crossing the road).
- One more year of life lessons learned
- One more year of…well, just celebrating me
If I can’t celebrate me, who else will?
I’m not a birthday badge or banner type, but I will fully tell anyone within earshot that it is my birthday because, why not?
I will treat myself to things throughout the year as late/early birthday presents.
Most importantly (and also to justify the treats) I will set myself some goals I want to achieve by my next birthday, and my treats are a reward for achieving those.
One of my goals last year was to learn about photography, so I enrolled on a photography course. Once I was a few weeks into the course, I bought myself a DSLR camera which I needed in order to get the best from the course. Tool and motivation right there.
What are my goals for this year?
I haven’t decided yet but there will be some lovely treats linked to them, I promise you that.
So to sum up, reward yourself as and when you need to. It may be big, it may be small, as long as it means something to you and makes you feel good (and does not cause harm to yourself or others).
Thank you for visiting my blog and enjoy the rest of your weekend. 😊
