It’s post-Christmas. You’ve had time to unwrap, take out the trash, and put away your goodies. Of course, you loved everything, right? HaHa! Maybe not. But we can share here. No one will know. I want to hear what your best and worst gifts were. I’ll tell you mine!
I had so many great gifts from family. My dd got me a Lorac eyeshadow palette (it’s high-end, great pigment—love, love it!). I got jammies and socks from my mom and dad (so cute, and soooo needed), lots of cool Post-its, action figurines, but my absolute fave things? Two gifts from my sis, Elle James.
1) The first is a journal/inspirational book, entitled Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You. It’s filled with “dares” and great quotes. For example, I opened it to a random page and found this one:
Fear makes the wolf bigger than it is… German proverb
2) The other is a big fat “Ideas” note pad.
Why are these gifts my faves? My sis knows me so well. I collect books with inspirational quotes. When I’m feeling down or not good enough, I peruse my shelf, pluck out a book, and flip through the pages until I find some quote that speaks to me and lifts me up. I love this book because it poses daily “dares” like listing today how I was a “Lion”. Makes you think and appreciate yourself.
And the Ideas pad? First, it’s very nice quality and over two inches thick. It has boxes to check off! (Yeah, I get happy checking off things!) And it says “Ideas”—of which I have tons. I plan to set this pad next to my night stand, because I always have my best ideas when I drift off to sleep—and always, always fumble for paper to capture them!
The worst gift? I really didn’t get a worst gift. But if I had to choose, it would be the little Aquaman figurine (standing in front of my new Han Solo!), because I can’t wait for Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and he’s not blonde, not wearing green tights, but hey, this one’s funny, right?
Sorry the pictures are blurry and dark. Not sure what’s up with my camera. The ghosts inside it must be restless…but that’s another story for another day… 🙂
