"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Retail Therapy on a Budget

With visions of making $10,000+ in my head yesterday, and then having them shatter into a million little pieces, I needed to partake in some retail therapy. What is retail therapy on a budget? Window shopping!

But I did splurge on an 8 pack of Coke. Coke is good, (soooo good) and we've basically stopped buying soda about a year ago or thereabouts, so it was a nice treat to make myself feel better. I also washed my car. It's the small things, you know?

I'm also a huge fan of asking for what I need to hear, and I need to hear that it's all going to be okay.

It's all going to be okay, right?


  1. It is all going to be better than okay.

  2. It is going to be ok.

    P.S. I love window shopping. Currently, I love window shopping on Roberston on my way to work. It's effectively cost-cutting because nothing's open at that time of morning.

  3. Hmmm, the things I take for granted.

  4. It's going to be better than okay, friend.

  5. I don't think I am good at window shopping, because then once I visualize how cute It would be.. I just have to have it!! I think I'm best just staying away, and so is my wallet.!! But I do agree retail therapy, is the best cure..!! P.S. Of course It's gonna be okay. Wouldn't have it any other way!! :)


Play nice.
