I was doing some online shopping and vitamins were on the list. I wanted to try a different brand and was scrolling like a detective trying to find a clue. The packaging of a certain brand caught my eye. I had heard rave reviews about the vitamin (good flavor; high nutrient percentage; and didn’t need water of food to take them). I looked at the price and immediately took them out of my cart. Cause they were more expensive than the vitamins I usually buy.
Y'all want to know how much more they cost? $2.60!
I had the extra two dollars, so what was the problem? I felt guilty about this tiny splurge. Taking vitamins are a part of adulting and surely I didn’t need to get different vitamins if my current vitamins worked just fine right?
Wrong. I sat for a few moments and reflected on why I would enjoy these vitamins. Was that worth $2.60? Absolutely!
So how has it been taking my new vitamins? Lovely. I am actually remembering to take my vitamins! I love looking at the pretty bottle. And my stomach doesn’t feel yucky if I take them without food. It is the small joy I didn’t know I needed. Now, I am wondering where else can I make tiny splurges that have big impact?
Moral of this story: Being generous to yourself is a form of self care. Examine why you don’t allow yourself to have nice things (especially if it is not an issue with money and budget). Then, give yourself something nice. Tiny splurges can equal big impact.
