When we do something special for ourselves, we should do also, something special for others.
Now and then, we break our routine to treat ourselves — to choose or buy something new, something special. In doing this, we experience a lift — an anticipation — the preparation we need to make before we enjoy this new pleasure.
During this delay — the time we wait — let’s turn our thoughts also to others. Let’s spread the sunshine. As we do for ourselves, so let us do for others. This legitimizes our self-interest. Moreover, it enriches us. It makes our special treat only the sweeter and more unique.
