The Gifts of Giving

When we give with authenticity we light up the world.


As I reflect on this summer and my gratitude journey there is one word that keeps popping up for me. I have come to realize that the one, overarching thing that has propelled much of my growth is giving. Giving magnifies our blessings, all those things that we are grateful for, all those gifts we receive and those we give build an aura of happiness around us and radiates out to the people we connect with.

As our gratitude grows so does our happiness and that is one of the most important gifts we give to the world around us. When we are happy we have a sense of abundance and that inspires us to give, to reach outside of ourselves and share our gifts

As we enter the season of giving I am making a conscious decision to give back to the people around me. If we all become mindful of this what an amazing world this would be. Giving can be in the form of a smile, a small act of kindness like holding doors, paying a compliment to someone, leaving a little extra money for a tip, or by simply  showing empathy. When we give with authenticity it lights up the world.

Sending much love,
