One thing I am learning how to do that I have struggled to do for years is self care. The rare times that I have done it I’ve had to either be forced to do it by my husband or talk myself into it. I mean I had to give myself the okay. So one of the things I have vowed to do is to give me myself the okay to do things with me and not make any excuses not to do it.
My number one excuse for not taking care of myself has been because we haven’t had the money and because of this my husband and I need things before I do. So I always put myself on the backburner. Now I am making sure that at least once a month I do something that makes me happy and take care of me. In the month of April I did a number of things where I focused on me.
So here is what I did in April to focus on me. I finally purchased myself a new laptop. Well it is a Nuvision Duo 10 2-in-1 tablet. I’ve been needing a new computer for awhile now. My old laptop is about 3 years old. The button to one of the buttons had come off. I still had the button but I would have to put it on my laptop so I could use it. So it was definitely time. I am so excited to have purchased it. So far I am loving it. It is really nice. I love the fact that I have the option to either use it as a tablet or a laptop.
I also purchased a cute pair of sandals. They were on sale for $5.88. You can’t beat that. Now I need to find an outfit that I can wear with it. I am sure that I can find something to wear with them. The whole point was that I got them. It will be even more fun to find a great outfit to pair them with.
I am so happy that I am improving in making sure that I take care of myself. What did you do to take care of yourself over the past few months?
