The Greatest Gifts of The Season Derive From Your Self-Love

 The deeper your self-love, the greater the gifts you can give and receive this holiday season.

 

“There is only one real deprivation…and that is not being able to give one’s gifts to those one love most.” ~ May Sarton

 

self-loveUnderstanding the level of your self-love, helps you to give and receive true gifts from the soul. The most important gift I could give or receive this year is Time. Time with my kids, my family down south, my friends in other lands, and all the wonderful people I have met in person this year or in Social Media. But time is precious- more valuable to me than gold. It is also a resource that is limited and if expended to far can be debilitating. SO we must conserve our time to guarantee our continued energy to fuel us towards our dreams.

 

For those of you I cannot share a little piece of my precious gift, I send you this wonderful revision of the Twelve Days of Christmas written by Sarah Ban BreathNach. There are so many other “gifts” I can bestow on others that have infinite value and can’t be bought in any store. The depth of my self-love enables me to do so with ease. There’s no worry about size, brand, price, color, themes or return policy with these wonders of life. There are so many things we can give as presents this year that are gifts of a lifetime. Get lost in the wonder of the TRUE meaning of the season.
