The Most Important Person On Your Gifts to Buy List
I enjoy the holidays, shopping, making gifts and giving them to others to bring them joy. Just
thinking of it, makes me smile. To me, the holidays are about joy and giving. But until a few
years ago, I had forgotten to bring me these gifts of love. Yes, I had not shown myself the same
love and appreciation that I do others. I ran around trying to please everyone and put myself
last which resulted in me getting worn out and angry.
I learned that self-care is best gift that I can give myself especially during the busy holiday
season. These presents include slowing down and moving my body in ways that bring me joy,
connecting to friends and love ones, body work, extra sleep, gratitude work, prayer, treating
myself to a meal out, asking for help, and listening to my body and feeding it what it wants.
By giving myself permission to love myself and make me and my desires a priority, I have more
to give and am less stressed and more peaceful.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season.
