It finally hit me.
I’m tired of being frugal. Being “realistic.” Being “practical.”
We’ve been going the economical route on everything. And I’m thrilled with the money we’re saving. Thus far, we have not been sacrificing on anything. The frugal mind-set is how we live normally and what we’re doing and getting matches us exactly.
And then, silly me, I began looking at veils. And other various headpieces.
And I want the expensive things! I keep bypassing what I like because I see the price tag. I save links for items that have a price range I would normally prefer.
I hate thinking, “Wait, I spent $179.00 on my dress. I can’t spend that or more on a veil! I can’t spend that much on something that will be worn for less than an hour!”
Practical. Realistic. Frugal.
And I hate it!
One might think, we’ll since you’re being thrifty, you can afford a splurge, but the “splurge” is being saved for DOC. That’s needed. No questions. Or, just make it yourself, and that’s just a DIY project I don’t want to take on. I’ve taking on others; don’t want that one.
I’m not girly, but I want something I like, not something I’ve settled for because it fits the “practical, realistic, and frugal” mantra. I’ve been practical, realistic, and frugal with money and decisions since I was 16-years-old. Now, it would seem, I’ve had my fill.
So, I suddenly stopped having fun. Stopped feeling happy with the plans. Stopped enjoying the visualizing of how it would all look on me.
All over a veil.
