today.. i went to go get my eyebrows waxed. i just go to the asians at the place by waikiki tanning.. its only 4 bucks and she usually doesnt even charge me and i just tip her. ANYWAYS.. while i was there i was so tempted to get a pedicure.. which is only $20.. but if you know me, you know i never spend money on things like this.. my thought process went like this..
“okay seriously i am pretty sure i read like 10 tweets and statuses this week that said “oh just got my manicure and pedicure!!” its normal. i should be able to get one. okay i know i cant afford it. i need to save my pennies. but its twenty dollars….. and ill plan ways to make more money while i sit and get pampered. no amber you cant. but you walk barefoot freaking everywhere you dont have a choice. you have to get one. bye bye money? ughhh fine i wont. but its not fair that i cant.”
seriously? then i realized im such a brat! as if i should be complaining that i cant afford a freaking manicure and pedicure. boo hoo amber. im very thankful that i went to fiji and got to see what it is like outside of this bubble. i sometimes need to remind myself how fortunate i am to even have the things i have. im sure the cute fijians i played with all summer have no idea what a manicure or pedicure even is.. and yet here i am complaining that i need to go home and choose from my 40 nail polishes which color ill have to paint my OWN toes in. (what a drag) just kidding. basically.. i am thankful for all the small, amazing blessings in my life and for all that i am so so lucky to have and all the people im so fortunate to have in my life.
roadtrip to california tomorrow!
