Long-term planning is pretty overrated when there’s no interim payoff
I loved this reflection Emily! I’ve struggled to learn how to “treat myself” over the years. I was raised in low income/poverty and so any sort of indulgence was always frowned upon. Even something as simple as not ordering the absolute cheapest thing on a menu. The only thing that has helped me to overcome some of this conditioning is going through my mom dying before she could retire and enjoy herself 😳 not a great way to learn this lesson!
