Gift Yourself

This is the time of year when many people exchange gifts. Some people stress about buying the hot new toy; other people spend lots of time preparing hand-made gifts; still other people just pass out gift-cards.

No matter what type of giver you are, don’t forget yourself on your gift list. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been naughty or nice, you are the most important person in your own life and you should always “pay yourself first” as they say in budgeting lessons.

Coach Blog 122513 Today, I would like to invite you to give yourself the present of presence. Take a moment or an hour or a day, whatever length of time feels right for you, and just be with yourself. Think about your hopes and dreams for the new year, and all the years to come, and think about how much you deserve all of it to come true (even if there’s a part of you doubting your deserving, just ignore that doubting part!). Maybe make some notes on your goals, but leave your real planning for another time. Just enjoy your own presence and value yourself as a person.

Consider giving yourself this present on a regular basis, a date for you and yourself, where you let your imagination run wild and dream your heart out. Getting in touch with your dreams is the first step to make them come true.

I wish you all a very happy holiday season and a new year of wonderful dreams!
