Let’s say you make a promise to yourself… for, like, a whole year.
You decide to give up something. And, you tell everyone you know about it.
What will you give up?
Quick! Think of something.
Now for the fun part…
You get to replace that “something” with something new, a new routine, a new activity, a new discovery for yourself, your call. (But, it has to be a stretch, and positive!)
What would you do?
Before you decide… check this out:
Today, this ran in Little Pink Book:
“When a recent Citi survey asked Americans what bad financial habit they’d like to break in 2011, 25 percent said they wanted to stop spending on things they don’t need. Now that the economy is in “recovery mode,” how can we loosen the grip on our wallets but still spend wisely?”
It’s a great question.
One I am not in any place to answer since I am not shopping this year.
I can share this:
The joy and amazement, as well as a little pain (yes Brazilian Bikini Wax I am talking to you!) I have found in trying new things for the past 115 days.
Sure, it’s been difficult at times not to shop (online and retail) or search out fun new finds. So far the adventure factor far outweighs the bummer factor.
In fact, this Friday I am trying a new spa treatment that I have never, ever, done before! I can’t wait to tell you all about it on Friday.
Until then, ponder this:
If you were to give up something ~ what would it be?
Even better …what would you add?
