Your First Gift

By John Rahme

This time of year, comes with many events and gatherings. Within those events and gatherings, an onslaught of feelings and emotions than we care to poke a stick at. There are many different circumstances which millions of people are travelling through. We may be with loved ones or may not be able to be with our loved ones. Some open and flourish in this festive season, where many can automatically hide from it all and would like this festive season to just pass them quickly.

Regardless of your circumstance, I find that at one time for a moment over this period. That we in some way and reflect inward and try to make sense of our year. In reflecting, in can become a very conditioned response that we tend to focus on what we didn’t do? On what we said we would achieve or become, but did not quite get there.

Reflection generally means QUESTIONS. This if I may, is where I would like to offer a suggestion.

What questions are you asking yourself?

Do the questions you ask already doom you to failure? Is it because that is what you expect or are conditioned to do and ask yourself?

Do your questions SERVE YOUR PURPOSE?

Do you really need to whip yourself anymore?

PUT THE WHIP DOWN FOR A MOMENT, PLEASE CHANGE THE STATE YOU ARE IN BY SOME TYPE OF EXERTION. NOW MY FRIEND, LET’S TRY SOMETHING……

Let’s learn to ask ourselves the right questions.

Let’s learn to ask yourself questions which truly SERVE YOUR PURPOSE?

A suggestion is not to start with your work or job. Start with you. Work from the inside outward.

How would I like to move forward?

What is it that I need to do in order to help me first?

Look at yourself as a project, how do I help this project succeed?

The questions which we ask, always must be true to us. But they must not detrimental to our cause. They must not be asked for the sake of pointing out and exaggerating negative points. You don’t need that in your life. Give yourself a gift. Give yourself the gift of self-love and through this self-awareness will eventuate. Be kind to yourself in moving forward. Moving forward is the key in asking yourself proper questions. Your questioning should be about, this is where I want to be, how do I get there?

What is your first question?
