Give (Yourself) What You REALLY Wanted

By December 27, 2013

Follow me on:

I hope you got everything that was on your holiday wish list (or will get it soon). Whether it was a computer, a fuzzy robe, toys or socks, I hope you love what you got. There is a huge variety of things people have on their wish lists, but there are a few things that virtually everyone wants, and can't be found on most lists: more good feelings, and fewer bad ones. (In fact, the bulk of what we want the most in life can't be purchased and gifted, of course, though I love getting thoughtful "stuff" as much as anyone!)

This blog brings you simple ways to give yourself the best of what life has to offer: good feelings. (And the best part is that when you give these things to yourself, you tend to naturally have enough to share!)
