1. Give Yourself a Gift
I’m talking about the nourishing kind (not that new purse you’ve been eyeing). Take a bubble bath, an extra long walk, or go for a drive with the windows down and the music blaring—and sing along. I often have solo dance parties in my apartment, and sometimes quiet time alone is gift enough. Pick a gift and commit to getting it today.

When elephants retire, many head for the Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tenn. They arrive one by one, but they tend to live out their lives two-by-two.
"Every elephant that comes here searches out someone that she then spends most all of her time with," says sanctuary co-founder Carol Buckley.
"It's like having a best girlfriend. Somebody they can relate to, they have something in common with."

When I was little,
I used to believe in the concept of one best friend,
And then I started to become a woman.
And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up,
God would show you the best in many friends.
