Did you receive a lot of gifts for Christmas and New Year this year? Did you receive any special gifts?
This year I received a very special New Year gift. It was wrapped in an inspiring and beautiful picture of. The message was very personal and encouraging. When I opened it, my heart leaped with joy and excitement. It is something that I’ve always wanted for years, a moleskine! Yes! I love it! Moreover, this gift was given by someone who’s extremely important in my life. Do you want to have a guess?
Yes…it’s me! This is a gift for myself this year.
(Perhaps at this point, you think that I’ve gone mad or something. Giving a gift to myself, then blogging about it on the internet? Well, hear me out.)
First, I believe that it is essential for me to be my own best friend. I want to be my biggest supporter, encouraging and focusing on what I do well instead of punishing myself for every mistake that I made in the past. As a friend, I want to give the most appropriate gift to do just that. This moleskine will be used as a success journal, the pages will be filled with daily success stories, achievements and positive feelings.
Are you also your own best friend?
Second, I also believe that loving, accepting and appreciating myself are very important for my happiness. I can only give what I already have. When I feel the love, acceptance, appreciation and happiness in my daily life, then I can share these feelings with others. Who can make me happy other than myself?
Do you love, accept and appreciate yourself enough?
Third, I give myself a gift because it was fun!
Don’t you want to have some fun too? Go! Get a gift for yourself and have fun!
