Let's take score of our personal wellbeing to ask the gift we truly desire
With so little time left before Christmas, the gifts have been bought and plans have been made. Though this gift doesn’t need to be bought. This gift is for yourself, something that you truly desire. Let's take score of the evolvement of your personal wellbeing in 2018 because if you take time to reflect, you'll treat yourself with the most precious gift: a gift you truly desire.
So get some paper and a pen, and write down the first things that come to mind.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, let me review my wellbeing to know it all.

Is there a particular part of your body that has been painful?

Has your health improved or impaired?
Do you see a relationship between your health and experiences in your life?

Our deepest desire is to discover and experience the parts we love and don't love of ourselves.
You don't need to use this reflection as a call to action. While you write down your answers notice your emotions and any physical sensations that pop up. Then put your answers away, maybe read them again or let them go.
I personally belief that everything we experience serves a purpose. After a series of adventures and experiences that have caused heartbreak, tears, and smiles I understand it even more than ever before. Our deepest desire is to discover and experience the parts we love and don’t love of ourselves. We want to get to know our fears and destructive behaviour to no longer limit ourselves so we live our loving potential. Every person and situation holds up a mirror, thereby showing us a reflection of who we truly are. Sometimes this reflection is amazingly beautiful. For example, when we fall in love, the birth of a child, or the start of a new project. Sometimes we prefer to refuse the reflection the mirror. For example, when we are in an argument with someone about their destructive behaviour, when a terrible disease shows itself, or when life does not go how we expected it to be. It’s ok, if sometimes you don’t want to look in the mirror. Another person or experience will come to hold up the mirror again with patience. Until you are ready to have a look.
What lessons have you learned this 2018?
What do you truly desire?
Have a lovely Christmas.
