Great gifts to ourselves

If you could give yourself one perfect day, what would it include?

Close your eyes and think about this. Take a cleansing breath. Let it out. What would the first thing that you would do on this perfect day. Would it be sunny out or would it be cold and rainy? Think about where you are. Who is with you? Are you by yourself? What are your plans for the day?

Think about what you would do, where you would go. Take your time and plan the day. Be in the moment, let your imagination go. This is your gift to yourself, so let yourself enjoy.

This gift is for you. Take this small gift of a perfect day with you in your mind this week.


Take a few minutes each day…

In the hectic and sometimes confusing times in my life I find that taking a few minutes at the end of each day and looking back on the day really helps me to focus on the good around me.

I want to suggest that you do the same every day.

Here’s how it’s done:

Everyday for a week write down the following:

  1. Three good things that I did today
  2. Three good things that happened to me today
  3. Five things that I am grateful for
  4. Five good qualities of mine

It may seem like a simple thing, but there are days that we have to really try hard to write these things down. It’s about reminding yourself and understanding that there are good things which surround you. Practice with this list and soon your thinking process begins to change and so brings light into your life.

Have a wonderful week!
