It comes without ribbons. It comes without tags. It comes without packages, boxes and bags. What if Christmas, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more…
It’s an easy mistake, with all the Christmas memories you make, that sometimes even you need a little remake. A little more confidence, a little self-reflection, to realize this Christmas is the perfect time to give yourself a little credit and affection.
After all, if you don’t give it to yourself, why should anyone else?
The magic of Christmas touches even the Grinch’s soul. Love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there. So why not be selfish and give the gift of love to yourself?
For a lot of people I know, including myself, time is of the essence and definitely not for myself. I’m critical of the way I look, of the way I act, and worry way too much of what other people think of me. I was so wrapped up in fulfilling others expectations that I lost track of what was most important to me – which is me.
We are all suffers from Atelophobia – a fear of imperfection. Accompanied with this fear also comes thoughts of comparison with others’ goals, accomplishments and expectations. Ultimately, it is the fear of “not being good enough.”
It is only natural that these feelings plague the mind.

From my main man Roald Dahl “A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. “
This Christmas is the time to do all the things you love with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. Do something extravagant and buy those fancy underwear. Life isn’t less beautiful, I promise.
