The Christmas holiday has come and gone but I wanted to share a special gift I received from an Auntie of mine and send all of you a New Year’s wish. My Aunt Cornelia is my Mom’s youngest sister and has always been the most vocal about her Irish heritage. Her home is filled with Irish trinkets and treasures and this year she decided to give all her nieces and nephews a piece of “herself”. She wanted to share some of her treasures with us now rather than wait until she has passed on. I happen to share a special ritual with this Auntie and every year we exchange Christmas ornaments. This year she gave me an Irish ornament with the word “Herself” engraved on one side and a famous Irish blessing on the other side. This ornament was such a wonderful gift in so many ways. It was special because it had been hers and on her Christmas tree for so many years. And it also has real meaning for me because I sign off on many of my posts with “truly herself”. I will treasure this ornament and it’s sentiment forever and want to share it with you. As we all look at another year of self resolve, let’s remember to honor who we are right now and today. Sure, we can improve and evolve, but let’s love ourselves for better or worse !
Now that’s being comfortable in your own skin! lol Wishing you the courage to love yourself and be yourself this year and always. Happy New Year! Learn more about the Silver Linings Playbook movie http://www.silverliningsplaybookmovie.com/
