You're Worth It

I was reminded today of something my mother did. One day she just decided to get rid of her casual dishes—dishes that I imagine she was bored with. But she didn't get new casual dishes. Instead, she decided to use only her good dishes every day.

She said, "Why not? I'm worth it!"

She also got rid of the crowding in her cabinets. For her, there just wasn't any good reason to keep two sets of dishes. But the real point was that she was no longer going to save anything exclusively for "company." Even simple meals become elegant on good china.

What do you have that you don't use because you're saving it for something special?

You are special. Get it out, dust it off, start using it. You're worth it!
