Treat Yourself Day and Why it’s a Scam

What worries me most about the future?

-Picking a career I will enjoy and being successful in it. My ambitions are huge and sometimes I worry that they might not all come to fruition

What am I doing about the things that matter most in my life?

-Well a couple of things matter the most to me. My spiritual life, my academics, and my friends and family. I allot time each and everyday to focus on all three aspects. Prayer in the morning,, focusing on schoolwork during the day, reserving the evening for dinner with my friends or facetime calls to check in with my loved ones.

What do I want most in life?

What I want most in this crazy, stressful, life we live is inner peace and good memories. I want to radiate peace to the point of impacting those around me. I want to be memorable, not in terms of fame but rather in terms of touching the hearts, minds, and souls of the people I love around me. What I want most in life is to make the most of life.

When did I last push the boundaries of my comfort zone?

I last pushed the boundaries of my comfort zone when I invited my friends over to my dorm even though I wasn’t done unpacking and the room was a mess. I am a perfectionist and a clean freak so to welcome others into my dorm even though it was messy was a step out of my comfort zone.

What goals do I need to have to get where I want to be?

I need to have a more consistent routine, and sleeping schedule to allow for a better management of my time.

This writing assignment was pretty interesting to do. I had to think long and hard to answer some of the questions. The assignment asked 5 questions and above I answered them. I was lured to this assignment because of the concept of self care. The assignment wanted us to take a step back from our busy lives and practice self care by reflecting.

I enjoyed being able to take part. Often self-care is misportrayed as self-indulgence. Shopping sprees and expensive vacation trip aren’t the only (or the best) way to practice self-care. Self-care is at it’s core about taking care of your mind, soul, and body not about indulging.
