So I did something last week a lot of people would think is crazy. (Actually probably did a lot of things people would think are crazy, but that’s beside the point.) I brought in a contractor to cut holes in my walls and move outlets and light switches.
Because they weren’t centered. Call me nuts or OCD, but if there is a receptacle on a four-foot wide wall, it should be centered two feet in, not 14 inches from one side.
One wall in my office had two light switches on it, and one was about half an inch higher than the other. Stuff like that drives me crazy. So I ended up cutting into five walls.
And while I was doing this, of course I upgraded them to the new style that doesn’t show any screws. And did them in white to match the walls, not that drab beige stock developers use.
Now every time I look at a wall, I smile. Can’t believe I didn’t do this two years ago. It’s about having a harmonious energy and environment…
Now maybe you don’t even notice your electric outlets and couldn’t care less if you did. That’s cool. But here’s the point…
There are some things you do notice – things that are important to your peace and harmony. They may be expensive, inexpensive, or even free. It’s important that you do what’s necessary to have them in your life. Not because you “need” them, but because they bring you joy.
When you decide you are worthy of these kinds of things, it just affirms your value to yourself. It could be something as simple as washing your rental car, or making the bed in your hotel room because the maid is delayed. Or it could be splurging on giving yourself a massage, a spa weekend, or even a new Bentley.
Money and materials things don’t give you happiness. But they do allow you the self-expression that can give you happiness.
As I shared on my Facebook page last week, I can tell my prosperity consciousness is still growing. I know because I just bought a new bathtub that cost $4,000. There would have been a time in my life that I would have thought anyone doing that should be committed to an insane asylum! Now I just saw it as the perfect fixture to finish off the new bathroom I’m creating.
So what about you?
What do you do to reward yourself, and affirm that you are worthy of prosperity? Or is it the other side…
Do you feel guilty spending or doing things on yourself? And if so, what are you doing to change it?
