Love myself, day 8

I took a little break from this challenge over the last day or so. But I’m back to it today.

Today, I’m happy to say I’ve been able once again to come up with something good that I love about myself without too much trouble.

What I love about myself today is, my willingness to help others. I always try to help others where possible. I enjoy it. I enjoy the feelings it brings up in me.

Its a really good feeling to know you’ve made a difference in someone else’s day. Or life.

I’m really glad I am able to do that for others.

Morning thoughts

I’ve been awake all night. But I am not tired. In fact I feel energised. Probably because I got so much sleep over the past day and a half. I slept well on wed night, and then slept most of thursday too. So yeah. It feels good to feel so refreshed.
I feel ready to face the day. I am going volunteering later this afternoon. I am looking forward to it.
Time to go have breakfast now.

The vets!

It went well at the vets. I spent way more than I thought I would have to though. Why is it when you go for one reason, you always end up having to do more and more things and spend more and more money! I had to get his ears cleaned, and he had to get more solution for cleaning his ears, a specific kind that will help to get rid of the yeast in his ears, the vet said it looks like he has a yeast infection in his left ear. he got his top up vaccination which was free, but then I had to buy him a flea treatment, but it lasts 3 months so thats a plus. Overall I spent 92 euro, but partly that was down to having to buy his food too which was 50 euro! so overall the ear solution and flea treatment cost me 42 euro. I am glad he’s ok though. So it could have been worse I suppose! He’s healthy and thats all that matters.
