Oh! I remember the days when guilt would ONLY let me provide myself with the basic necessities. I’d judge people on their spending habits and used to take pride in being “smarter” than that.
Here is the thing though.
When we live our everyday life trying to find deals, justifying what we are worth, only buying things on sale, depriving ourselves of what we really want and need, always thinking there is not enough and money is scarce…
Well! That is the experience we will have in all areas of our life.
Now look, I consider myself pretty modest and smart financially. I work hard, I invest aggressively for retirement BUT I also know the power of investing in yourself. Why? Because my life has changed by saying YES.
As female business owners and mamas, we work so diligently in our businesses to provide for our families, lead our teams, make sure everyone is supported. In addition, we work hard to have quality time with our family which puts even more pressure on us. What tends to happen over and over again is, we don’t give back to ourselves and that isn’t a fair way to live.
I don’t have guilt anymore around investing in myself. Here is why…
When I invest in myself, I am investing directly into my future, my business future, my team’s future, my children & my husband’s future.
When I invest in myself, that investment comes back TENFOLD in profit, happiness, and fulfillment.
It is so easy to say…
“I don’t need this”
“I will do it myself”
“Maybe next year”
“I can’t afford it”
And you wind up 6 months, a year, 5 years, 10 years down the road still hoping and wishing for something different.
This year, this month, TODAY… I want you to give yourself a damn chance.
Invest in yourself.
Believe in yourself.
Follow your heart.
Do the damn thing!!
Treat yourself like a mother fucking queen. And as you do, notice how your life begins to change. Notice how you show up and what shows up for you.
You have to say YES. And when you do, the universe will open doors for you.
Say YES to you!
