A good day to you all. In today’s post I am going to discuss the benefits of giving. I believe that this is one of the most rewarding things we can do. As I have previously mentioned, we have the power to do anything, so a great way of putting this force to good use, let us be more giving.
To be giving is to be “affectionate and generous where one’s feelings are concerned.” – Collins dictionary.
We can incorporate this action into our everyday lives very easily, whilst helping ourselves as well as others. So, when I say “be giving” I mean willingly do things for other people. Families, friends, and yes, strangers. This could be the smallest act of kindness, such as – if someone in a shop queue drops a penny, pick it up and give them it, instead of watching them do it themselves. Try to bring your awareness to what is happening around you. Be mindful of others.
Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeve
Of course, we are all different and some express emotions more openly than others. I believe we should be respectful to those we encounter as we go about our daily tasks. Having the ability to spread your happiness among those around you is one of God’s greatest gifts.
Not everyone asks for help. Therefore, do all you can by offering your help. Become consciously aware to do that little bit extra. Some friends or significant people in your lives may reach out to you, but not everyone will. Once you have offered, it is then down to them whether they accept, listen or follow. You have done all you can by this point, the rest is down to the other individual.
I was walking around a town recently (can’t remember where), and I saw this quote written on a wall. I thought it was beautiful, and I discovered it was said by Maya Angelou, so I thought I must share it!
