Lots is written about rewards for goals achieved and I realised that whilst I sometimes mention rewards vaguely, more to do with getting to the final target, I rarely actually really reward myself.
Anyway, one of my teams has been talking about non-food rewards... so I decided to do something about rewarding myself this weekend...
Yesterday, I finally coloured my hair after letting it fade and grow out somewhat since September last year.
For years I had red hair, rebellious after running away from my abusive ex. Then the last few years I rang the changes with bits of blue and purple. Just over a year ago, I went magenta, then last year it was purple. Last night the purple and blue came out and were mixed together.
I fully intend to age ‘disgracefully’ and no, I won’t be embracing the grey any time soon. You see, if it was evenly grey I g that would be one thing, but I ain’t no ‘badger’, so bright blue’y purple is just fine.
Tonight, as Laurie was cooking up a lovely meal for Valentine’s, I decided we would dress up, so on went a dress and tights, some favourite jewellery and.....
Eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, brow mascara, blusher and lipstick.....
And...... I felt great!
Hope you had a great weekend and remember, those rewards make you feel so good!
