Every holiday season, Oprah shares her favorite things list which contains many items that are fun, useful and make great gifts.

One of the clever items mentioned is a Poinsettia Flower Pot Cake which is adorable and looks pretty tasty too!

Another treat that looks very yummy is the English Muffins and Preserves Set, along with so many other delicious gifts!

Happily, these and all the items on the list can be won by clicking this link and entering a daily code as directed.

Sharing kindness, information, ideas, and resources is a wonderful way to enjoy the holidays and the rest of the year as well.

I know I’ve always appreciated when others have mentioned a book they loved, or offered other positive sources of information and support, that have provided an added benefit to my life.

What would you put on your favorite things list?

Embrace the Truth

In recent weeks, I’ve come across several different websites that were talking about author Glennon Doyle Melton, who wrote the newest Oprah Book Club selection, Love Warrior.

In learning more about her, I found her to be refreshingly honest and wise, as demonstrated in her interview on Super Soul Sunday. In the snippet from the show, she discusses the “I’m fine” response.

We may indeed be fine today, but we might also be scared or hurt or confused on other days. I’m sure many of us can relate to feeling one way on the inside, and ‘acting’ quite differently on the outside by saying all the right things.

There does seem to be a common indoctrination to truth telling, that rewards all our positive feelings and gives less approval to the painful ones.

However, embracing the truth about our internal world, and sharing it with those we trust, is a healthy step to growth and transformation.

Are you able to accept your true feelings, or do you judge yourself for being less than fine?
