  1. I love this piece!!! I, too, am making efforts to prioritize myself. For many years, I placed others first and many times I sacrificed my own happiness. Like you, I am making room in my budget for those things that make me happy. For me, it’s a Chai Latte with Soy milk. And I am doing better to prioritize my health. I exercise more and make my annual health appointments. Life is much sweeter now.
