You are ‘The Gift’ 

At this seasonal time of the year that includes gift giving, it is important to stop and reflect upon one of the greatest gifts of all – you.
Yes, that’s right, you!

You are your most precious gift. Despite the trials, the tribulations, the ups and the downs - your life right now, at this moment, is a gift.

You are a gift that you can open up and explore - or you can choose to keep yourself wrapped up.
You are a gift that you can thank God for; “Thank you God for me,” – or you can take yourself for granted.
You are a gift that you can learn from and grow with - or you can choose to stay the same.
You are a gift that you can spend time with - or you choose to ignore.

Regardless of how you approach the perfect gift, let’s not forget that you are ‘the gift’

Have you ever stopped and thanked God for you, your life, your experiences, your growth, and your wisdom? Let’s all do so now.

It is easy to complain, to be unhappy, to be stressed, and to wish things were different. But, if things were different, would you still be you? Would you be who you are right now? I guess that could lead to a long look as to whether you really like who you are, right now. Let’s put that aside for the moment, and not forget that you are 'the gift’. I want to encourage you to take the time to get to know yourself and love yourself.

If you look up the definition of ‘gift’ in the dictionary, you will find, “…a present, the act of giving, a natural ability, talent.” The gift of your individuality certainly involves the natural abilities and talent that you were born with and that which you have developed during your life. This makes you unique, special, and one of a kind. Maybe part of the gift that you are includes the definition of present – since a gift, is a present. One definition of present is, “Occurring now, being at hand, and being present.”

When you live in the present moment instead of the past or the future – you give yourself a powerful gift.  The 'present' is experiencing your self in the present. After all, the only things that are real and true are God’s love and the present moment.

 So as you contemplate the gift that you represent to yourself, be 'a present' and 'a gift' to yourself, by living and being in the present.

I am present. I am gift.  I am precious gift. I honor myself. Thank you God for me!

 Happy Holidays. God Bless You.
