I believe in setting reward systems for a job well done, even if it’s for the smallest thing. Buy that dress, try out that new restaurant, take a vacation somewhere, go out with friends, take a break, buy that thing that you’ve been saying you will buy.
Reward yourself with your heart’s desires, you deserve it!
