Word Press Post a Day – You return home to discover a huge flower bouquet waiting for you, no card attached. Who is it from — and why did they send it to you?
Flowers? For me? No one ever treats me to flowers or candy or even a nice dinner. I live alone. I don’t really know anyone. Depression and social anxiety kind of stop that from happening. So who would send me flowers?
I’ll tell you who! Me!!! I sent myself flowers. Why? Because I deserve to get something special every once in a while. I deserve to have someone come to my door, leave a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I don’t need a note. I wrote the note and sent it in the mail the same day, it should get here in a few days. It will be another reminder for me. A note that reminds me how special I am and that I need to love and take care of myself – sometimes I forget that when I am down.
We all need to remember to treasure ourselves. We don’t need to depend on others to always give us gifts. We should be able to give ourselves gifts. Not necessarily flowers – but a day off, or look into the mirror and smile and see the beauty in ourselves, to be able to feel good about ourselves. It is ok to do something nice for ourselves. In fact, it is necessary to do something nice for ourselves.
So, I sent myself these flowers. I sent them to remind myself of what a wonderful person I am. Even if I have no one around me, no significant others, no friend, no one that would think to send me flowers – I still deserve them. I deserve them for being me – for being a beautiful, on the inside and out, person.
