I believe in working hard. And I also believe in rewarding oneself. It applies to the whole aspect of my life.
Some people may think I am extravagant. Yes, I have several luxury bags. Yes, I buy branded clothes. Yes, I stay in 5-star hotels. Yes, I travel 4-5 times a year overseas. Yes, I eat in nice restaurants. Etc, etc, etc.
But what people don't know is that I also work hard to be able to buy or experience those things.
Don't get me wrong. I don't do these things because I want to impress other people. I do these things as a way of rewarding myself for every hard work I have done.
I do believe in splurging once in a while. But I also believe in saving for the future. It may look like I spend way too much but believe me when I say that I also know how to save. In fact, we have been saving 50% of our income ever since. Saving and rewarding are equal in my vocabulary.
Save, so you can enjoy the future.
Reward, so you have energy to work harder.
Work hard, so you have something to save and a reward to look forward to.
Don't scrimp on the vital things in life. Travel. Relax. Enjoy. Life is short. You cannot save everything for last because you never know when is your last breathe.
With that said, yes, we are going to stay in a 5-star hotel two weeks from now when we are in the Philippines.
Happy Easter! =)
