So what else can you give yourself today? 12 things… The act of giving is transformational. It creates energy: it changes those who get and those who give.
1> Give yourself credit. Nobody can know how hard you work. Take a minute to tell yourself that you handled something well.
2> Give yourself freedom to change. Do something different. Break out of your routine. Try something new.
3> Give yourself permission to say “No”. If you continually ignore your own needs to take care of other people, you risk becoming angry and depressed. Remember that “no” can mean “not now” or “no and that’s final!”.
4> Give yourself health and happiness. The more patience, passion, and energy you have, the more it rubs off on others.
5> Give yourself a break. Do not be so hard on yourself. On tough days, adjust your expectations. Ask for help (which gives others a chance to feel needed).
6> Give yourself simplicity. Even the simplest act of giving to yourself or others can make a difference. So start small but do it – now!
7> Give your full attention. Whatever you are doing, throw yourself into it. You will enjoy it more.
8> Give yourself encouragement. Life can be hard at times. We do not always get the support we need from others. Sometimes we need to give it to ourselves.
9> Give yourself time. To be alone. To be quiet. To think or listen. To do something you really want to do.
10> Give yourself sacred space. No one has the right to drain you of energy, money, or happiness. Allow only those who can respect and honor your sacred space into it.
11> Give forgiveness to yourself and others. By forgiving – whether it is yourself or someone else – you are letting go of an uncomfortable burden you have been carrying around.
12> Give for the sake of giving. When we give on purpose, with purpose, all kinds of powerful, positive things can happen. Manifest a miracle in your life.
Remember, when you give, the one who gets the most is you!
