Haven’t had a reminder post of the importance of Giving in your life.
Giving of your time, your experience, your knowledge or your money (or even just you) is an amazing thing to do for the receiver. My kids have been lucky enough to have volunteers help them out in sports, and I really appreciate those volunteers’ efforts. It doesn’t have to be a lot, just something, anything and you will make YOURSELF feel better.
If you are religious, the idea of “Better to give than receive” or “Positive Karma” is very much up this alley, but even if you aren’t religious, it just makes you a better person if you help someone out or help a group of people out. Don’t worry if the folks who you are doing this for appreciating it, I find that giving is a SELFISH thing to do because it makes ME feel good.
Good stuff! I’ve started posting on giving too — just created a category for it. It needs to be talked about more.
