Overcoming Buyer's Remorse!
Hey there! If you are anything like me then you love a good sale! I used to have an issue with buying myself things. Something referred to as buyer's remorse. It's a real thing! I would buy, then take back before ever getting to enjoy what I had bought. It got so bad one time, that my friend told the Sales Rep, if they saw me come back in the store trying to return an item, to turn me away! Why did I have buyer's remorse? I honestly felt bad investing in myself. I thought well that money could have been put to use elsewhere. The thing was all of my responsibilites had been taken care of: bills, children, etc., yet I still struggled with buying and not returning things for me. I can hear my mother's voice now saying, "Every payday do something for you. I don't care if you just buy yourself underwear, buy something for you." She warned that I may go on to regret not doing so because at that point, I was just living to work and pay bills. As a Domestic Violence once victim, now Survivor, I had to have a mindset shift that it was truly okay to do something for me. I had to learn that I was worthy of an investment (in myself).
With that in mind, knowing that there may be others who suffer with buyer's remorse as I did, I have put some of my favorite items on sale for you.

Please know that it is okay to do for you. It is an act of self love to do so. It is also the season to give to others, so this offer can be shared with your loved ones. The Proverbs 31 woman is a wonderful example of taking care of yourself and others as you can see that she took great care of her family and also made investments. I love how the message Bible explains this! "A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds. Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it. Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long. She shops around for the best yarns and cottons, and enjoys knitting and sewing. She’s like a trading ship that sails to faraway places and brings back exotic surprises. She’s up before dawn, preparing breakfast for her family and organizing her day. She looks over a field and buys it, then, with money she’s put aside, plants a garden. First thing in the morning, she dresses for work, rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started. She senses the worth of her work, is in no hurry to call it quits for the day. She’s skilled in the crafts of home and hearth, diligent in homemaking. She’s quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor. She doesn’t worry about her family when it snows; their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear. She makes her own clothing, and dresses in colorful linens and silks. Her husband is greatly respected when he deliberates with the city fathers. She designs gowns and sells them, brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops. Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile. When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say, and she always says it kindly. She keeps an eye on everyone in her household, and keeps them all busy and productive. Her children respect and bless her; her husband joins in with words of praise: “Many women have done wonderful things, but you’ve outclassed them all!” Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of- God . Give her everything she deserves! Festoon her life with praises!" Proverbs 31:10-31 MSG
