I listened to my life coaching teacher’s podcast yesterday. It was called “gifts to my future self”. I started thinking about gifts that I have given myself today because of my actions in the past. I workout 4 or 5 times a week and I have been doing this for many years. I always told my husband that I was investing in our future together. I have an auto-immune disease that affects my joints and I thought that if I ever stopped moving, I wouldn’t be able to get going again. This week my rheumatologist told me that I am in remission and I don’t have to see her for a year. I have no idea why I am in remission – I have been taking steps to improve my health for years, but I am so grateful for this gift. I believe that the small and simple things I have been doing over time have compounded into this huge blessing. I am not taking any prescribed medication, I move freely, I have minimal pain in my body, I walk and swim and dance. I am GRATEFUL for my body and what it can do.
I am excited to continue giving more gifts to my future self because I love her and I want her to have the best life that she could ever envision for herself. Just seeing how the little things I have been doing have added up motivates me to find new ways to create my future.
Have you ever thought about how the things you are doing today can be a gift to yourself in the future?
