So to change things up a bit across the two forum spaces, we have two gift giving threads going! This one is about sharing a gift you would like to give yourself this year. It could be as simple as a cup of tea, rest or maybe its things like kindness, or time. We can use this to have a bit of a goal through the holidays to see how we can actually bring that to ourselves.
Once you have posted here, head to Gifts to the community! over on the Lived Experience side! Lets celebrate and connect across the two this holiday season!
To kick this thread off, the gift I would like to give myself this year is patience (others are welcome to use the same gift if they want!!) I find the holiday time a bit busy and I can get flustered and want to take charge of things, so having a bit of patience and slowing down is something I'd like to 'gift' myself more of this year.

Who doesn't want an off the cuff witty sense of humour, dental implants, a wise mind, a household cleaning service, a cure for foot in mouth not to mention a fabulously toned body and a new wardrobe to match ... just sayin'.
A Christmas gift to myself = new years resolutions wrapped up with a large red bow. Yikes @Lauz ... don't know if I should go there.

@Lauz @nashy @Darcy and everyone for me a self care tip would be walking with or without a friend. Walking is so soothing and calming and can be incorporated into a busy life over the holidays. I will be going with my friend early in the morning before the madness starts. I hope everyone has a super pea holidayxxxx
