Work hard…play hard…get rewarded
My husband and I just took a big trip to Italy. I am a saver and he is a spender. While on this vacation I found myself worrying about how much we were spending on meals, wine, and activities…thinking about the debt we would be coming home to. Each time I had any of these thoughts I would stop and say out load to myself…”I work very hard and I deserve this trip and I am not going to hold back or worry about money. We have plenty of money now and we will have even more when we get home because we will be relaxed and energized by this vacation.”
So I found myself letting go of my fears and spending, spending, spending! On our last day we got bumped from an over crowed flight..and missed our connecting flight. The Airline put us up in a hotel and rebooked us on a direct flight in the morning. Afterward we received $2000 in compensation for our trouble! Then after being home for less than a week I got an unexpected sale at work that is going to yield a $6,000 commission check! We ended up spending about $4,000 on our vacation…but made an unexpected $8,000 in return.
Positive thinking and a great time paid off!
