  1. You are so right. Many of these things I had not thought of until you mentioned them. One is permission to stop reading boring books. Another was to be myself. I’m not a really good decorator like my Sister Sharon, but that’s okay. Thanks for sharing. Kathi

  2. These are all wonderful things to give yourself. I am learning to give myself a lot of those same things. I think the wisdom to do so comes with age. 🙂

  3. Did you see that? Dawn called you OLD!!! LOL.I like your list. It is full of perspective and wisdom and even struggle. I wish I could honestly say that I truly give myself those things, but usually I don’t.

  4. Nice list! I am working on a few of those things too. Sadly, the business of life, makes it easy to forget to take care of our real needs (let alone define them.)Have a great day!

  5. This makes a lot of sense! Permission to stop reading boring books. I’ve been clearing out our bookshelves recently. I’m trying to stop feeling guilty about books I no longer want…Blessings!P.S. Thanks for the award you passed on earlier in the month. I appreciate your support. :~D
