What gift did you give yourself this year?
December 27, 2012. No comments.
Maybe you gave yourself the gift of a calmer love-life or embarked on a more exciting one. Maybe you gave yourself the chance to do more of the things you really love to do, or stopped indulging in a stupid habit. It could be that you just got wiser. Or thinner. Or less stressed out by all the unimportant stuff.
Maybe you gave yourself the gift of regular solitude, or permission to really go for your dreams -whatever it takes. Maybe you allowed yourself the time to write, or paint, or sew for no reason at all. Or got in the habit of hanging out with a good friend.
Perhaps you finally cleared out the attic or re-ordered the office, discovered you love to ballroom dance or took a chance on a daring new hair colour. Perhaps you passed that exam, sang in public for the first time, or finally stood up for yourself. Maybe you gave yourself the gift of having tried – even if it didn’t work – or the gift of letting go. Perhaps you just decided to stop giving yourself a hard time, all of the time.
It could be that you opened up your mind and heart to new horizons, or went on a wonderful real-life adventure on the other side of the world. Or somehow opened an inner door and discovered a treasure trove of ideas to carry you through the next year, and the year after that, and the year after that….
The possibilities are endless
