As we age, we tend to spend most of our time worrying about the bills or work and the likes. We forget about taking good care of ourselves. If buying new stuff for you is how you suffice it, then it is okay. However, the best thing you can do is to invest in yourself. Not necessarily with the latest luxury bag or car, but with something that will help you develop your skills and is essential for you to stay relevant at work and society in this fast-paced and hypercompetitive era. Keep learning! Invest in seminars, webinars, and skill development classes.
Make yourself open and available to new experiences and opportunities to learn, grow, and make yourself better than you were before.
