Everyone likes to get gifts, right? You feel remembered by others, honored, and cherished. What’s not to like? And giving gifts to people we love, revere, or with whom we want to be closer is enjoyable, one of the best rituals of life.
Whether you get or give gifts, it’s a win-win. Everyone feels good when it is done with a true feeling. It’s a sad thing when someone lives without these simple pleasures.
We each face or avoid challenges and opportunities. At times we shrink from an opportunity for a good thing because it looks like a risk. Putting ourselves out is a risk of life. Also an investment. Every investment has a possible payoff. No investment, no possible payoff.
Everyday in life we move to get results or things to avoid. This is universal. Everyday there are things that need to get handled. Opportunities that are grabbed or avoided. The question everyone asks themselves is, “What’s in it for me, or what bad could happen?” This is the moment to grab or avoid.
There is a time when it is the best moment possible, but maybe it isn’t so obvious. A time that may look challenging or just not easily beneficial. But maybe it isn’t really as challenging as it may seem. This is the time when you can give yourself a gift.
The greatest gift anyone can get is that of confidence, freedom, and happiness. The secret is that these are the things we get by our own moments of living. What would you like to invest in? Give yourself the gifts you may crave yet be frustrated in finding.
Dig into everyday life looking for these opportunities not yet seen. They are all around us, really. These are the gifts we deserve, are earned, and forever cherished.
