TT – "The Gift"
I love that my life is a gentle rollercoaster. I love that the dips are growing smaller than the pinnacles. I love that, just as I am ready to throw in the towel, my life shows up to remind me there is still hope. I love that I used to give up long before it was anywhere near time to do so, almost as soon as I had begun. I am appreciating that I can see the progress and the distance I have covered with small, persistent steps. I am appreciating that, through all of my life, I have always wanted “it” NOW! *imagine Veruca Salt* and in my desire to have it NOW!, I have frustrated myself more often than not. And, yet, I have kept going. If there is one thing I can say about myself is that I KEEP ON GOING.
It’s my gift to myself, I realize now. I understand that, while things may not always look how I want them to or may not always be what I want them to be NOW!, I am creating in every moment. What I love most is that I can now see how my propensity to “keep on going” is building a beautiful, magical life that I am proud to be living.
Wow! I am proud to be living my life???
I had never acknowledge that before. Yay me!
While there may be no store-purchased gifts from or to me this year for Christmas, I am offering the gift of myself to me and to all who care to receive. I feel happy about that.
