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 myself. 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 a while now. My old laptop is about 3 years old. Some of the buttons had come off. One of my friends suggested that I get one of those lubricants (like this Tribosys 3203) optimized for tactile switches. It could probably help me save some money rather than buying a new one altogether. Well, I’m still contemplating my choices to find the best option. A friend of mine had got just the parts alone instead of buying a whole new set, so I’m thinking if that would be nice. Surprisingly, the Customized Stickers that were on these buttons looked shiny and perfectly fine. Still, I might probably get more stickers for my new one. Anyway, it was definitely time. I am so excited to have purchased a new laptop. 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 want this one to last a little bit longer this time around, so any issues that pop up I’ll have to send it to a laptop repair service to see what they can do to help me keep this laptop going.
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?
