A Fun and Inspiring Gift for You!

I was cleaning off my desk and found an old shoebox full of mementos. Inside, was a box of paper strips that I had written for myself almost 8 years ago. I had completely forgotten that I had done this and it was quite a treasure to rediscover.

Basically, I had made an advent paper chain for Christmas and I had written an inspirational message on each link.  Thus, each day, I could look forward to opening a ring and reading the message to myself.  It was a bit like a paper chain crossed with an inspirational fortune cookie.

While it’s not Christmas yet, why not make your own inspirational advent paper chain?  It’s super fun and super easy to do.  All you need is some paper cut into strips, a pen and some glue or tape to hold the rings together.  I thought it would be fun to share what I wrote to myself so many years ago, so here are the inspirational messages that were inside my paper chain:

  • I am a shining star!
  • Allow myself harmony
  • I am so clever
  • I am always there for me
  • I love me!
  • I am cheeky!
  • Pursue my passions
  • Good fortune today and every day
  • My true love gave to me a condo!
  • Love surrounds me
  • I am loving to myself
  • Happiness and joy are mine
  • I allow myself financial abundance.  I attract $$$
  • My life is an exciting journey
  • I am dynamic and fluid
  • Holly, I matter.  I count.
  • Eat well. Be healthy.
  • Play today and every day
  • I love me
  • I did this for me. I deserve it.
  • I am brilliant and amazing
  • My mind is brilliant
  • I allow myself to express my creativity
  • I am the Queen of manifestation
  • All is one
  • I am talented and others see this
  • I am nurturing. Nurture myself
  • Smart. And beautiful.
  • I am beautiful
  • I do not fear fear

  • Hug myself cuz I’m so cuddly
  • I’m sexy. Sexy is good.

Ooh, that was fun to re-read those messages to myself.  I think it’s time to make another paper chain!
