Day 18 - 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge: What Is The Best Gift You've Ever Received?
What is the best gift you’ve ever received?
The best gift I’ve ever received was one that I gave to myself. On my 25th birthday I bought myself a return ticket to Hawaii. This would be my first solo trip that I’d ever embark on.
When the time finally came, I was so ecstatic and nervous! Every single day I was in Hawaii, I was honestly blessed and in the presence of beauty.
I’ve never woken up feeling so much joy every single morning before. I really miss it.
Hawaii actually gave me the opportunity to really think about what I want to do with my life. It made me realise that when I die, I want to leave this Earth knowing I’ve brought value to people’s lives. I want to help people. I want to die knowing that not only did I help them but I had some sort of positive effect on them.
Maya Angelou says that people will never remember what you said, or what you did, they’ll remember how you made them feel. I want to inspire others and also help them feel good. I’m not sure what kind of role I’ll be doing or what job I’ll be pursing to do this, but Hawaii gave me the time to come to this conclusion.
Sorry if this post seems cheesy but this how I feel! I hope you enjoyed today’s entry :)
