We are so quick to spend money on expensive brands, I have heard my sister say ‘Oh that £1000 channel bag I bought is an investment’ and I myself have done and thought the same. But what I haven’t ever done is invest in my own brand, invest in my inner self, invest in my soul.
Money to me in very precious and it often takes a long time for me to spend it, questioning if I should or shouldn’t and sometimes deciding the latter because I feel like I can do without. Like what I am spending on isn’t worth it, what I have realised is the only time I will spend freely is if it gives me a deep and memorable experience, if it is something tangible, that I will be able to hold close to me forever, this means at time, I have missed out. This delicate relationship with money and the need to hold back stems from a scary childhood experience, this experience has never left me and is now the reason I feel the need to always save, have a pot just in case and at time won’t spend freely – now thats a whole different issue I need to work on.
Anyway the point is, if we can invest in luxuries like handbags, clothes and even meals out, why can’t we invest in ourselves? Why can’t we spend money on improving our inner selves, our spiritual selves and not feel bad about it, isn’t this something that will remain close to our heart, something that will stay with us forever, the answer is a very big YES, so why don’t you invest in yourself, in your inner self, get some help, get some guidance and even if you have you have to pay for it, aren’t you worth it?
