As soon as I saw it, I wanted it.
Like, how could I not?
It was a comfy sweatshirt, with the old school Star Wars logo.
But a small voice told me,
“you don’t need that”.
I knew that voice was right. I didn’t NEED it after all.
It wasn’t that expensive, $32, but still, I could use that money for other things.
I’ve been budgeting for years now, cutting back on those “unnecessary” purchases.
But another little, smaller even, voice came through.
“You want it, and you’re worth it”
In those few moments I realized I’ve been denying myself for several reasons.
Out of necessity, but also out of feelings of unworthiness.
I’ve let those practical practices feed into my story if I don’t deserve that.
Time to take myself back.
I don’t foresee a spending spree in my future, but I do see myself getting more clear on why I do what I do.
Onwards and upwards.
Oh, and I dig my new sweatshirt.
