Have you ever waited for something in your life that you have control on? Like learning a new language or learning to bake but for some unknown reason never did it? Why do we do that?

I’m a victim to that, whether it was insecurity or procrastination, I had waited for that hypothetical ‘sign’ to come to me before doing something new. But to obvious knowledge, nothing of that sort happened unless I had a moment of realisation and pushed myself forward. Like starting this blog, I’ve toyed with the idea for quite a while now but never actually done it until one morning I woke up with the agenda to finally get to it. I’ve written about this in my first introductory blog too.

And let me tell you that feeling I’ve got when I actually did it done was blissful. It made me so happy, free and in my highest spirits. That made me think, why did I ever stop myself from doing things that I know I could? Things I know would’ve made me happy. Is it because self-indulgence makes me anxious about myself?

Self-indulgent  /sɛlfɪnˈdʌldʒ(ə)nt/: 
Characterized by doing or tending to do exactly what one wants, especially when this involves pleasure or idleness.

Difference between self-indulgence and selfish is important for everyone to know. Self-indulgence doesn’t necessarily mean being selfish. We can be self-indulgent without being selfish.

Being selfish makes others unhappy but self-indulgent is making ourselves happy. And isn’t that something everyone tries to achieve on a regular basis?
So here’s to reading that book you’ve kept aside and/or buying that dress you’ve saved up for, here’s to making yourself happy and being self-indulgent!

Comment down and let me know what’s new on your agenda today. I’d love to know! 🙂
