I just want to feel good and one of the best ways I can do is to spend money.
It really is!!!!!
Another way is consuming food.
Maybe I could get out and buy myself a nice dinner.
I like the feeling of freedom money and spending money gives me right now. Not giving a darn about spending money is a good feeling, my friends.
I think I have been on a strict budget for too long (my #TheLeanSpendingMonth practice is > 6 more weeks right now) and the fact that our boss mentioned about firing people last week, which naturally raised my nerve levels to a new high, I do not want to take “it” any more.
I will spend money on myself if I want to.
I will buy unessential food/drinks that will help me feel good if I need to.
I will eat good food and nourish myself anytime and anywhere.
I will still be frugal, but I refuse to be cheap, especially towards myself.
With that I am ending my #TheLeanSpendingMonth challenge.
I have saved a couple or more bucks with #TheLeanSpendingMonth challenge: during this challenge I was more careful and conscious about my spending and savings. But considering the fact that I had already had good spending habits, the money I saved was not too much (maybe around $20-25/week). It is still a good sum of savings but it is not worth this feeling of being constrained and deprived.
I have learnt that I was already a good spender/saver and I could continue like this.
I have learnt that I needed to be kind to myself and addressing my needs were important.
I have learnt that right now money was not the most important thing to save – keeping not only my physical health but also my mental peace was.
I have learnt that while I enjoy challenging myself, sometimes timing was everything – when it is not a good time, it is not the time.
These being said, there will be times when it is a good time to try #TheLeanSpendingMonth challenge again.
Until then, off I go to relax 🙂
