Hit Goals & Treat Yo Self

When you hit a goal:

Treat Yo Self

To level set – this is not a permission to treat yourself into debt post – it is a reminder that there are small ways to pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

Let me give you an example:ย For one week I embarked on a no spend challenge. I accomplished my goal and did not swipe my card for 7 days! As a reward, all I wanted was a couple of Charmโ€™s Jumbo Blow Pop Suckers. Two for me and one for each of my boys. ๐Ÿ™‚

Before satisfying my $1.50 sugar craving – I stopped at my local Salvation Army to source inventory for my Poshmark Closet. Then BOOM, the heavens opened up with angelic voices singing (just go with the theatrics) & my orange obsessed eyes locked in on a brand new BCBGmaxazria pleated cocktail dress – IN MY SIZE!!!

I was hoping the dress had a white tag attached as that was the ยฝ off color of the week. Nope, it was a red tag item. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ In Salvation Army lingo – that means pricey and slim chances of a mark down. ๐Ÿ˜ฆย 

The price of this dress was $10 (after tax)!

That is a lot of money to spend on one item (in my world). The fact that the dress was gorgeous, high quality, new with tags, a reputable brand, and in my favorite color – changed the game completely!

Nevertheless, the war within was giving me whiplash! Should I spend $10 to treat myself or save the money to carry over into the next month?!? ย The DJ Khaled voice won by a landslide:

Donโ€™t Ever Play Yourself

The $10 dollar dress with a MSRP of $298 is now in my personal closet!ย Oh, and I got those suckers too – stackin’ treats! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yโ€™all I cannot wait to wear this reminder of hitting a personal goal! Warm weather come through, puhlease!ย

Friends, my prayer for you is that as you compound victory after victory you remember to :

Take your Victory Lap & Do your Victory Dance

Whether the reward is small or whether it is large – it will give you the fuel to conquer the next goal! Stay the course Goal-Getters! ๐Ÿ™‚

Peace & Blessings,

Lonisa
