Yesterday I really outdid myself. Yesterday was an important day. To others, it may seem funny. But yesterday I bought my first ever brand name winter coat. Three years ago I would never think I’d ever be able to afford things like this. But hey, I started out buying some hoodies, t-shirts, that was great…But an expensive winter coat? Nahh, never, but hey, it happened and it’s a milestone. I grew up thinking I’d never be able to own things like this.
All because I save my money and work hard for it. And the blessed feeling you get when you afford something you never thought you could. I didn’t ask anyone to buy it for me, I didn’t lend money for it, I didn’t request it as a gift, I just worked hard and I got it. Me. All by myself. Of course it’s also because I said no to myself a lot during the last month in terms of going out or buying things I don’t need, but here I am and I am proud of myself.
I know some people in my life right now look at me sideways because of what I wear, but hey, I worked hard for it and I can wear it proudly.
Cheers to saving money and having some!
