I look forward to the holidays every year for the traditions and the family time, and of course for the giving and receiving of gifts. Who doesn’t? While it’s very easy to get caught up in the ads, the sales and the sensationalism of the holidays; I want to redirect your focus a little bit to ask you a question.
What do you want to give yourself this year?
This is a great time to begin reflecting on the past year and thinking about whether or not you’ve given yourself everything that you deserve. Have you honored your feelings? Have you told yourself how beautiful you are every day? Have you taken steps towards your goals? Why wait around for someone to give you something material that will only give you fleeting satisfaction.
If you are denying yourself of anything at all, now is the time to pull out all the stops and give yourself the best present ever. No one else can give you the joy and confidence that comes from self-love.
I’ll share first.
All I really want is Peace, Love and Freedom.
** There is no reason that I should waste a moment on worry or insecurity. I give myself the freedom to live in the light and be myself regardless of how people respond to me.
**I let go of the need to buy things and I embrace the love of creating things.
**I don’t need to feel stuck in any situation. I give myself the freedom to create my own path and my own opportunities.
**I give myself the freedom to Dream big. Love big. Give Big. In every corner of my life.
**I let go of guilt and shame. I’m free to travel light and go far. Free to see myself as worthy of every good thing.
**I give myself the freedom to do what I love.
