The joy of… #6

Have you ever stopped for a minute, to think about things which give you joy? Well I decided it was time for me to share a few thoughts about the things which bring me joy.

Today my ‘joy’ post is about treating yourself, for no reason, other than because you can!

As I said in my post “The joy of…#01”, it’s always lovely when we receive an unexpected gift. But today I also want to remind you that it’s just as nice a feeling when we actually buy ourselves a ‘gift’. Maybe it’s something we don’t need, but have wished we had for a while, or maybe it’s just a small treat that will help lift our spirits or our mood.

I guess the difference between a gift someone else gives us, and a treat we buy ourselves, is the treat we buy ourselves is usually much more personal than something someone else buys (other than those closest to us) for us.

We all need to treat ourselves sometimes, so whatever will bring you joy, go on, treat yourself today.
