Day 4: my shirt today say, “I’m going to lay under the Christmas tree to remind everyone that I am a gift.” The truth is that sometimes I forget that I’m a gift so I don’t require that other people treat like I am.
I’ve been guilt of accepting less than I deserve both personally and professionally at times. I’ve also hesitated to ask or strive for more due to self-doubt. I’ve prayed and didn’t leave the worry, doubts, sorrow or disappointments behind so they wouldn’t cloud my view of myself. And, too many times I’ve been harder on myself than other people; focusing on failures rather than successes.
If anyone of this sounds familiar to you, you may want to try a little harder this holiday season to remember you are a gift. If you do, people will see you that way too.
