In a recent interview with TIME, photographer and filmmaker Adam Crouch said that today’s gift is to be open and honest about yourself.
He said that to have fun, and not hide behind others, you need to embrace who you are and accept who you can be.
“You need to take yourself seriously,” Crouch told TIME.
“And you need someone to tell you how you’re supposed to feel, because if you can’t, you’re going to feel like a failure.”
It is true that we can be open with others about who we really are.
Crouch, however, doesn’t want to be defined by who we are, and wants to be able to celebrate who we truly are.
In an article published in March of 2018, Crouch discussed his love for “shooting a shot at a time.”
“I’ve had the privilege of shooting a lot of really good stuff that I love and that people are passionate about, and I feel like it’s my job as a photographer to put the right image on those things, or to make them look good,” Crouce said.
“There’s a lot more to me than that.
And that’s why I love the camera.”

You may even want to look at a few other gifts you’ve received and see how you feel about them.
If you’re thinking of purchasing something, don’t be afraid of spending more time thinking about it before actually taking it out.
“I think of it like a car,” Cough said.
You don’t want it to be a chore, so if you have a budget, don a budget and see if you like it.
You might be surprised how much you like something, and it might be a gift that you love.
And the more time you spend with it, the more likely you are to feel comfortable in your gift.
It might even feel like you’ve earned it, so go ahead and try it out!
“It can feel like your gift is a big, fat ‘no’ to everything else, and maybe you should be okay with that,” Couch said.
