At this time of year, I’ve heard, as well as, experienced folks talking about a sort of “lack” in their lives. Money is a big one, as is time. I hear it’s difficult to do everything and see everyone. I hear people saying they don’t have the money to get many things for people, or anything at all.
Realize prioritizing and giving of yourself is the most important gift.
So, what does this tell you? What lesson is it? Perhaps it’s time to prioritize. Prioritize your time. Or perhaps it’s necessary to understand this is not the only time of year you have that’s special. Every day is special. Learn to spend time with those you love each day be it a phone call, a visit or maybe a simple text to a loved one you haven’t spoken to in awhile saying “Thinking of you!” Ask yourself “What am I so busy doing that I don’t have the time for loved ones?” Because, aren’t your loved ones special? Aren’t they your priority? Doing “stuff” isn’t a priority. The dishes can wait. The cleaning can wait. The TV, tablet and computer can wait. Dive into your own real life. It’s so much more important. Remember, you are special, you truly matter and you are a priority too. So, take a walk in nature. Do yoga. Meditate. Read. Do something for you.
And regarding money issues. Well…how much do you really need? How many people really need a gift? How much do you really need to spend on a gift? Perhaps those same people would love a gift of your time. How are you creative? Or maybe you have a special talent. Write them a poem. Sing them a song. Play an instrument. Give them something of yourself. Give them a hug. Note what really matters is how you make people feel…and this is what they remember the most! The gesture of a gift is nice, but a gesture of you helping them feel good is better. As some of you know, I’m a Reiki Master & Teacher. I can provide healing energy to others. I am also a yoga teacher and a life coach. I can even give these as gifts, and I have. Think of all the ways you have been internally blessed. Be creative. And give of yourself.
May you realize you do not lack time or money, but have other resources & abundance to give!
