Back in college, there was this interpersonal relationships and communications class we were required to take. The lecturer handed us a piece of paper on our first day. On it, there were a couple of sections involving one's view of oneself, religion, love... and we were told to answer it honestly.
|Inside joke among some of my girl friends :P|
Anyway, I remember one of the sections distinctively because it took me by surprise. It said "A gift you would give to yourself". I paused.
"Courage," I wrote.
Yes, the courage to be myself, to stand up for my beliefs, to grow, to love, to forgive, to be kind... I couldn't think of anything better back then and I still can't think of anything better today.
If you could give one gift to yourself, what would it be?
And no, that wasn't my real answer in regards to religion :)
