Splurge … February 11, 2011
I treated myself yesterday. I’m so sick of living in a constant state of lack that I decided to splurge.

Fabulous-looking polish, but still just $.99. Polish doesn’t stay on me long anyway, so anything pricier would be a total waste.
Since it came to just under $10 it wasn’t a big splurge but it made me feel good. Sometimes it can take so little to perk up a wounded spirit. This time it was a few simple drugstore items. But just a word, or a smile, or that rarest of things, common courtesy, can brighten your outlook, even if only for a few moments.
