Hey, Mom, What Do YOU Want for Christmas? 11 Reasons You Need to Gift Yourself This Season!

Mom, tell me these statements aren’t true:

  1. You’re always thinking about everyone else.
  2. They’d fall apart without you.
  3. You’re working very hard in your career and/or other endeavors.
  4. You keep the ship afloat.
  5. You are amazing.
  6. You don’t tell yourself this enough (or ever)!
  7. Standing strong means loving yourself. 
  8. You really can’t fully love anyone else, unless you love yourself (don’t fool yourself on this one, mom). 
  9. You need to show your kids what self-love is all about. 
  10. You need to show yourself what self-love is all about. 
  11. You need to do this now!

There. You said it, not me. Let's say, it's a done deal. Happy holidays, mama.

I catch myself saying. Oh I don't need anything as long as my sons have Christmas. So true us mommas do deserve a little something too. I'm easy I like candles, smelly good stuff, socks, scarves, stud earrings, bead bracelets. My big wish item is a Fitbit Charge 2.

I've found that I am gifting myself more. Actually ordered myself some shoes with the gift shoes I bought for someone else. I've found if you don't give to yourself, you have nothing left to give the people you love.
Gail Harris
That is so great @heatherfrey. And it comes down to choice. We must choose this for ourselves. happy happy.
