A Gift? #WordsMatter #icdreams
Welcome to #wordsmatter, and the prompt this lovely (winterish) December is : ‘If I could give/receive one gift…..’.
This prompt had me jump up and promptly start making a list – and I realised that the prompt is ONE GIFT – and interestingly, first of all, one I could give!
So, One Gift If I could give to you, it would be the Gift of Wisdom!
I would wish upon you the wisdom to know it is YOU!
grant me the serenity
to accept the people I cannot change,
the courage to change the one I can,
and the wisdom to know it’s ME. “
The next part of the prompt, a Gift I wish I could Receive – ONE Gift! Uff, what a tough one, between books and perfumes and eye shadow palettes and craft kits and endless supply of yummy coffee….. well, if I had to pick one, then I wish the ability to manage my Energy!
With this question as I reflected upon 2019 that was, and the 2020 I wish will be, I wish for the wisdom to know that it is ME and MY ENERGY that will set this year up for Joy and Happiness for me and everyone around me!
I pray you receive the gifts you wish for, and I hope, every time you think of me, you do so with a positive heart and thought for me 🙂

Wisdom , happiness , you and your energy make the difference in life .
It’s what most of us would wish for, Ishieta. WIsdom and energy. The two things that we need as we go through life.
Me? I would want some wisdom, too, and good health, or the ability to know what’s good for me and what’s not. 🙂
How sweet! It is indeed difficult to pick just one gift, but managing our time and energy is the best thing we need.
I need a bit of that energy! Somedays, I simply can’t be myself. Good one.
Wise choice for giving and receiving gifts. Both wisdom and energy complement each other and are needed to move ahead in life. May you give and receive both of these, Ishieta!
I agree its difficult to pick one gift. If I get to pick i will travel the world without worrying about money.
Nice way to actually look inwards. A gift of wisdom is something really great to give and receive as well. The other gift which would make the world a better place is the gift of Kindness.
Two gifts that I’d love to give and need to receive. Wishing you both, my friend! ♥
I agree with you that it’s really hard to pick one gift. If I have to pick one gift that’ll be healthy me. Wisdom is necessary but health is the main thing for me.
This words matter looks like a fun blog hop. I never knew about it. I will try to join it asap. Btw great story.
Loved the prompt as well as your earnest take buddy. Wish you get the right energies in abundance
Aww, the two gifts are most needed these days dear 🙂 I feel so connected while reading your post dear 🙂
Agreed its so difficult ,to choose one gift,love your promptness,kindness
Love the prompt and your approach towards it. The one gift that I could give to myself is to control my anger.
Energy is the most important thing that we can have that keeps us going. I have experienced myself how weak I feel when I am draining and there’s still a lot of work to be finished.
A good choice as a gift.
I need to frame that quote and paste it on the inside of my glasses so that it is the only thing I see!
I agree that if we can gift someone this we can really make their life worth and happy. Great thought of gift!!
Nice. Gifting ourselves is very important. I used to gift myself with a dress almost every two months before I got pregnant for the second time.
Loved your idea of gifting.. The gifts you choose will remain with your forever. Wisdom is the most priceless gift. Way to go gal. Great post.
That is such a sweet post. I will wish to have wisdom and a clear vision. I feel sometimes we get carried away with so many things happening around us.
Wow this is interesting. Loved the prompt and it’s interpretation. Seems like an interesting blog activity. Would love to participate too.
I love your picks buddy, if asked my choice would be similar. Wisdom though is the best choice in my eyes.
Both wisdom & energy are quite thoughtful gifts you chose to give & receive. Our happiness depends a lot on these things. This was actually an interesting prompt for a blog hop. Loved your post!
Love your idea about gifting with some unusual stuff. Which makes people happy and connected. Totally connected with your thought. I must tell this is a great thought
Looks like a very interesting..would have loved to participate but too busy right now. Will surely try to follow all the posts.
One wish in this year is truly a universal wish we all are looking forward too. Wisdom once obtained is a life time gift and I would also choose the same.
Don’t we all crave that. Its really interesting how we all want the same thing but wouldn’t work hard for it.
I would always choose wisdom and if we could give these gifts to someone i guess this would be wonderful . Nice prompt and great interpretation
What a lovely choice of words for a gift I really like the prompt and look forward to participate the next time for me that one word of choice would be patience
Wonderful thought… true more than gifts it’s the efforts and thoughts that matter. My husband also belives in this.
The wisdom to carry on and keep our positive energy afloat is something we can all do with right now. This is such a good prompt and you did it well.
This is short yet so thought provoking. For me the perfect gift would be Sukoon..
A difficult choice to make. I would cherry-pick neither energy nor time. I would say- the wish would be to be at peace with all that I have- all the time and energy. What a sweet post, girl. Gets you to pause, for a bit.
