In my old age, I’m 61 now, and after that 16 year long, roller coaster ride of a relationship is now over, I’ve decided to get over my extreme stinginess and indulge myself a little.
For instance, I bought myself a new smart TV. My first one ever. My last TV was a tube. And, I’m going to subscribe to Amazon Prime video and music, Netflix, and YouTube premium.
I’m also getting a patio loveseat and coffee table for my balcony. I’ve already ordered them.
I’m also getting monthly massages at a local spa. I’ve had two so far. The first was a very, very firm massage to my neck and shoulders only. Man, did I ever need that!
This month, yesterday, I told my masseuse that I wanted a firm, full body massage everywhere but my face and privates. Man, did she deliver. And for a whole hour too.
I highly recommend this experience for everyone. It costs me $80 each time but I think its worth it.
If you can’t realistically part with around $80 a month, I would suggest doing it at least once a year. Perhaps as a birthday treat for yourself?
