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