I woke up this morning thinking of the best gifts I have given myself and those that were given to me, this brought a big smile to my face because some of the gifts I thought were big deals then are really nothing to me right now. I guess my perspective has changed and I look at life a little bit differently.
So I thought, what gifts would i be giving myself this year, I really want something priceless, collection of fabulous moments and experiences. While I have promised myself to live a life of adventure, I think there are some other things I would like to improve on in this new year.
Peace of Mind:
Count my blessings instead of dwelling on things that are not working well or things that I don't have yet. Live in the moment, appreciate the things that I have now, while I plan and work towards the things I want.
Stop comparing myself to others (comparison is the thief of joy). Social media has a way of making me feel like i'm not good enough or i'm not where i'm suppose to be. I'm thankful for where I am right now and I know it can only get better.
Time for ME:
I always put myself last on the to do list. Every other person comes first, I worry and care about them, in the process I neglect myself. I will find ways and time to invest in myself, pamper and improve on being a better person. Explore me, my values and my limits.
With diabetes, thalassemia and early menopause, I have my plates very full and these things gets me overwhelmed for sure. I have decided to be happy and stay happy. Its hard work but its the best gift I can give myself.
I'm going to be nice to myself in this new year and be a happy girl.
