Buying Jewelry for Yourself
I still remember when I first purchased my first piece of fine jewelry. It was a gold chain bracelet that I never had to take off.
Every morning when I washed my hands, I would look at that bracelet and feel so confident about myself. It was a reminder to me - from me that I could do whatever the heck I wanted. I worked really hard through college and then to get the job I wanted. So who is going to tell me that I can't buy myself a real piece of jewelry? No-one!
Buying jewelry for yourself is not just retail therapy. It makes you feel confident and happy, especially if you are celebrating a professional or a personal milestone and want to treat yourself and feel special.
Women have always put themselves second when it comes to love and care. Your dreams and desires get buried in the daily rigmarole by shouldering the responsibility of home and work. Now is the time to focus on yourself and give yourself the tender, loving care you deserve.
The life of a modern woman is full of stress. The woman of today is more susceptible to stress than ever before. You often forget to care for yourself with so much to look after.
Working hard to bag that coveted account for your company, making sure that your kids have completed that essay that they have to turn in the next day, and hosting that luncheon party for friends on the weekend.
This is precisely why you should take charge of your happiness and pamper yourself. Why rely on others to make you happy when you can very well do that for yourself.
When you can buy gifts for people whom you love, why can't you buy gifts for yourself? Buying yourself that ring or the necklace that you wanted is all about valuing and loving yourself.
Nothing is more empowering than buying that pair of earrings that you have been admiring (or two or more :). You can wear that jewelry every day to feel beautiful and confident.
Remember, it's not just a piece of jewelry; it is evidence of your decision-making ability. It tells you and the world that you can make your own life decisions.
Buying jewelry for yourself is an enriching and emotional experience. It is not just an action of self-love but an impact statement about confidence, self-reliance, and higher self-esteem. Jewelry is a reflection of your personality. An independent and new you!
Self-love is often frowned upon as selfish because the source of this love is not someone else but you. It is time we view self-love with a different lens.
Research has shown that women who care for themselves and their well-being are much more successful and mentally happier. To know how to love others, you should know how to love yourself. It is this concept of self-love that buying jewelry for yourself celebrates.
Here are my favorite pieces made with real gold!
