Day 52: A Gift

This is Day 52 of the Positive 100, a countdown to Rare Disease Day 2014 and an exercise in being positive despite it all.

Gifts. We have them. We give them. We receive them. All of them make us smile.

Day 52 : A Gift | Positive 100 | Chronic Positivity Project

When thinking about today’s post, I could not think of what kind of post I should be writing. Should I write about gifts in terms of talents? Or of the favorite gift I have ever received? Or maybe about the favorite gift I have given? The gift of life? How Ryan Gosling Hey Girl memes are the best gift from the internet?

God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well. – Voltaire

I decided to go with French philosophy, this sentiment from Voltaire fits in with this project perfectly. We are alive, we should treat ourselves to a good life.

I am not suggesting that we go out and buy designer shoes and eat fancy dinners all the time. I am suggesting that we live well by giving of ourselves. That we love our bodies, no matter how much the rebel. I want us to find something positive in every day. I want us to celebrate life.

Most of all, I want us to allow ourselves to accept the gift of living well. The gift we are giving to ourselves. The gift of happiness.

Share the positivity on TwitterInstagram and Google+ with the hashtag #100positivedays. Also, you can sign up to be emailed a recap each week of the challenge.
