Once we challenge ourselves to improve, setting up goals and looking forward to gettin’ them come true, it is more likely we have put best efforts, beating ourselves up in any kind of motivational approach all along the milestones towards the goal.
So, if we made it, why not rewarding ourselves? (Or maybe we can make a reward list in advance before going thru the process in order to stay motivated towards our goal-oriented rewards ;P) As for me, we deserve it, this system also mentally helps like getting a pat on the back, or feel being appreciated. Yup, a small concrete ones that are ideal for us are enough.
Which one will you choose if you’re about to rewarding yourselves :
1) Reading your fav novels, watching fav shows/movies.
2) Calling your family / friend to share your great news
2) Have a break by hangin out or travelling maybe?
3) Relaxing bath, spa, saloon or scope of ice cream?
4) Shopping ~ spoiling yourself with the gown that made you fallin’ in love last time
5) Or any other ideas, please?
As for me, I just rewarded myself with violin. I bought myself an electric violin.
I wish to practice violin here, so now I was one step towards my practice session.
As soon as I know I passed the test, I browsed the Yahoo Auction and did a lot of biddings on violin. Finally, this is my new treasure in the room.. 😉

It seemed like not working while Mr J visited me, but today it worked after several attempts by sets of experiments and also contacting one of Thai friend who plays violin. Ahh.. I’m so happy, well I’m a real amateur but why bothering it? Practice makes perfect, so as long as I feel pleased playing ~ even in my weird tunes, who cares? (oops, but I care if the neighbours feel annoyed, I’ll be in trouble) hehe..
