Sometimes, I leave money in random places just so I can be happy when I unexpectedly find it.
It’s like little surprise gifts from myself.
I’ll be finally cleaning a portion of my dresser or opening a cabinet for a cup of water and there it is just lying there, five or ten bucks. It’s silly but it’s the nicest feeling.
If you haven’t ever tried this, you should. It can cheer you up on a day when no one else will. Or better yet, leave a little compliment for yourself folded into a pocket or book you plan to read. Sometimes a little encouragement from yourself is all you need.
