Putting Self First
This is a personal blog for me tonight & thoughts on what's going on in my head.
Well this week was a good one for me; I reached my weekly weight goal of losing 2 pounds. I put my body in motion & changed my eating habits. However, over the weekend I felt a sense of loneliness. I mean I know I have my 2 boys & Eric but I thought about my lack of friends here in Orlando.
I think about how I worry bout all of my friends & family & how I put their needs first. I only have enough friends to count on 1 hand that live here in Orlando. I have lots of Spark Friends but nothing like having an actual support system here physically. So I called my Best Friend (BF) who lives out in L.A. & was telling her how I wish I had more friends here. She told me that I put everyone first other than me, which is true. I told her how I want to go on a cruise next year & might have to go alone but no longer waiting on the few friends that I have to live my life.
MyBF told me that I have at least maybe 50 more years to live & I need to stop worrying so much about how much things cost but to enjoy what it is that I want. To start picking quality over quantity. What she was saying is that I am always trying to save a dollar if I can & when I get 70 years old what good is going to do me to have tried to save but never really bought & enjoyed the things that I wanted b/c I thought it cost too much. She said what's the point in working if you can never treat or reward yourself. I said you know what, she was absolutely right!!! I am treating myself to a cruise on my birthday weekend & don't care that the price will be higher b/c my birthday falls on Memorial day weekend normally but it's an experience that I want & I am going to just pay the extra money & treat Cassandra.
I am no longer waiting on others but do plan on going out at least twice a month with others & stop living like I am over 80 years old. I have a lot of years to live (Lord willing) & I don't want to live my life trying to pinch every penny & not to have enjoyed any of the money that I bust my butt to earn every day. I want to be old & look back at all of the great experiences that I did when I was young & active. I want to enjoy my life now & become the Orlando Diva Socialite!!
