Work hard, play hard. This is my motto. I mean, is there any other formula to be productive and live life to the fullest? I’m proud to be a hard worker. The relationship I have with my work is a perpetual motion. My work provides me with continuous energy, I provide my work with energy in return. It’s basically the same energy transferred over and over. But sometimes I do need to release this energy – this is why I’m occasionally treating myself to the money I’ve been saving over the years.
How do I treat myself, you might ask? Well, when the time comes and I feel the need to refresh, I give myself a day or two just to think about what the next step should be. I try to surprise myself and not follow my standard consumerist bucket list. For instance, the last time I went to the mall there was a store that I did not really understand. The inside was filled with all kinds of machines and devices with ventilators, and I ended up furnishing my whole house with air purifiers. I never thought I would do that, but it turns out there are a lot of positive benefits for everybody in the house.
Now it’s time for a new shopping spree. Currently, I am in my vacuum phase, thinking of my next step. Lots of things I need go through my mind. A new computer station maybe, with all the flashy gadgets and maybe a new desk setting. Or maybe I should just go with a full-body treatment; manicure, pedicure, massage, aromatherapy, and maybe even go to a chiropractor. Or maybe both. The possibilities seem to be endless. There is so much I can do.
But know what?! I’m definitely going to a pet shelter first. Once there, I’m sure that I’ll end up with a pet. More pets, more love! I’ll buy them toys, food, and all the other accessories they need. They will add up to my flow of energy and I can share my happy moments with them. I kind of surprised myself with this decision. So now, I’m going to explore, seek, and find what I need. Maybe that process is even more exciting than anything else.
