Pre-holiday pep talk

At Frugal Hacks, the Headmistress thinks twice about quick fixes:

And this is what I want to remind myself of this year, before the advertisements get to me and weaken my self control. I cannot buy the new me. It won’t come in packages, a boxes or bags. It won’t come accompanied with a sales tag. I cannot accessorize myself into greater spirituality or a better personality.
