Use the Good Stuff

You pile up enough tomorrows, and you’ll find you’ve collected a lot of empty yesterdays.

Professor Harold Hill (The Music Man)

I have become a strong believer in the importance of using the good stuff now. I wear my diamonds every day; I use my good china every day; I use the good stuff in my pantry every day; I use my good lotions, perfumes and other bath and body products every day.

I have my good guest towels in the bathrooms to be used by whoever uses the room.

We are living right now. Every new moment of now is our life.

We don’t know how long we’re going to be here. We don’t know if the perfect occasion for that good bottle of wine or champagne may ever come. We’re alive right now, so that makes now perfect.

Also, if that occasion does come, the products we were saving may no longer be good or usable by the time it does. If it was a gift, then it’s highly likely that the giver intended for us to use and enjoy it.

And most importantly, we are worth it! I know I am worthy of feeling fabulous and luxurious in every moment of my life, if that’s how I choose to feel. So I do! I dawn my diamond earrings, while I eat off of my good china, wearing my finest perfume and lotion.

We save these things because we deem them important, valuable, and as representing us in a highly complimentary way. But if we choose to not use them, we are subconsciously sending messages to ourselves that we are not yet who we aspire to be; that we are not worthy of such nice things.

In addition to those messages, we also send ourselves messages of lack. If we use our good product now, we may never have something so nice again for when that special occasion does come. That sends subconscious messages of lack, unworthiness and un-attainability for the things we admire, appreciate and desire.

We are worthy of enjoying these wonderful things while here on this planet. So let’s!

Self-worth comes from one thing — thinking that you are worthy. Dr. Wayne Dyer
