Halloween holds some of my favorite childhood memories. With my birthday being so close to Halloween, I had a lot of Halloween themed birthday parties and even did Trick-or-Treating for my birthday party.
.
I always loved the anticipation of Halloween...finding the perfect costume, getting home from school and immediately getting dressed up, meeting up with friends to get to the good houses first because nobody wants the crappy candy 😂 I also had a pretty sweet deal since my brother is allergic to peanuts...we would trade out his peanut candy for any of my non-peanut candy.
.
As an adult, I still love to participate in Halloween and trick-or-treating by dressing up and handing out candy. Unfortunately, only about half the Halloween candy makes it to Halloween because I don’t buy the crappy candy 🤣
.
I think back to the time when I told my personal health and fitness coach that I couldn’t afford my program that got me started on my health/fitness journey...but I would drop $50 on Halloween candy, $50 or so on a costume, and another $100 on decorations because Hobby Lobby had them 40% off. 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
I can tell you from personal experience, neither the candy, costumes, nor decorations have made a huge impact on my life. The candy only made me want more candy and the costumes are hanging in a closet in our guest bedroom. I asked myself why the heck I bought candy because we were going to be out trick-or-treating with Abby and then end up with more candy. .
What has changed my life is investing in myself...putting the same amount and probably even less towards something that benefits me instead of take away from me.

The embroidered cat eyes on this bag are so realistic. Love this bag, turned out exactly as I hoped it would. Now listed in my etsy shop. Link in bio.

“See a penny pick it up, all day long you’ll have good luck” 🍀
I don’t think a penny heads up in it self is lucky, but the moment I see one I see an opportunity to create my luck that day to attract it even more than the day before. 💜
In every penny faced down there’s an opportunity to create a lucky day for someone else, so flip it ova always❣️
