Oh, Billfolders, as predicted, y’all are just the wisest and sweetest! Glad to hear I’m not alone in my predicament and grateful for your advice.
It can be oddly difficult to transition out of a mindset of utter scarcity (where you save every possible penny and feel guilt about what you spend) into one where you can use your money as a tool to better your life.
I find myself consciously reminding myself: you have earned this money, it is yours to spend, taking care of your body is a necessary and valid expense. Sure, I spend small amounts of money stupidly and thoughtlessly, but this large-planned out expense takes some psyching up!
I’ll listen to some Spice Girls this Thursday to get my girl power going, then make the call to set an appointment. Promise.
