I wrote a post in December 2019 about the five gifts to give yourself. That was pre-pandemic in the U.S. Nearly three months before we had any idea of the road ahead. And you know what? Shockingly, I wouldn’t change a thing.
I say “shockingly” because I tend to look back at what I’ve done and think I coulda shoulda done better. And at that time it was easy to be sanguine about the future. But I know how we are. You know it, too. Even with all we’ve been through – and continue to experience – we tend to think self-care is selfish.
But the truth is, self-care ISN’T selfish.
So, back to the gifts to give yourself. Here’s a quick recap:
- A time out
- A good life
- Want what you have
And so I offer this to you again and encourage you to read the original post with fresh eyes and a curious mind. Can you give yourself a gift this holiday season?

I LOVE this, Heather! Its so true & so easy to forget that, yes, we do all deserve a “gift” this holiday season. A gift we give to ourselves! On that note, I’m wrapping up a gift card to myself, to one of my favorite restaurants! Why not?! Love It! XO
I LOVE that you’re wrapping the gift card you bought for yourself! Thank you for sharing, Missy.
