The best gift I've ever gotten is my loved ones looking me dead in the eye and saying YES to the crazy dreams inside my head. Saying YES to the stirring in my soul to write a book. Saying YES when I wanted to take a leap. Saying YES to my wanting to give back in a distinctly-Court type of way. Saying YES to the passion and excitement I have for storytelling. Saying YES to the potential in me.
One person saying yes to that gut instinct that urges you on is sometimes all you need to do the great, big, magical things in your life.
One person saying yes to the light behind your eyes when you talk about your dreams is sometimes all you need to turn that light into a fire.
One person saying yes to the values that reside in your heart is sometimes all you need to enact your uniquely-you belief system and to help heal the world around you.
If you can think of one person you could say YES to this holiday season, consider giving them a gift that reflects that YES. If you are the person who needs the YES, don't be afraid to ask for it.
Here are three gifts to reflect the YES:
gift certificates for creative mentorship and coaching (Amount of your choice)
