INSPIRATION #7 Giving and Appreciation


I know with the holidays and all everyone has a theme for giving. I love giving and would consider myself a nature giver. For the past year or so I have been taking a deeper look into the art of giving and what I can do more to give on a daily bases.

I wanted to become more conscious of my giving I looked at what other inspiring givers were doing and also thinking of how I already give. At one point I felt a little overwhelmed by the need I could see that could use a lot of help, or so that was my story. I thought how could I help so many when I am only one person. Then I remembered the story of the man who was putting starfish back into the ocean. He could not help them all and it still made a difference to that one. I also feel that giving is contagious and when you give to someone that someone usually feels inspired to give to another and so on.

I even realized from speaking to an amazing gentleman I met the other night that giving continues even after one passes on. His wife had cancer and because she decided on an alternative health path she was able to continue her life on this planet for 5 years longer than expected. He was not really open to eating a diet different from what he was already use to as a body builder. Through the health his wife gained by changing her diet he began to open his mind and alas he joined us for a raw (pot) luck and gave of himself in the form a delicious dish he made with live ingredients and more importantly LOVE!

I also know giving also inspires attitudes of gratitude and of course both appreciation and giving (when given from the heart) both feel good. Feeling good creates more abundance of giving and WOW one think leads to the other and what more could one get than a complete package in life than giving and appreciation!

Someone once told me do what you love and you will always be happy, I would like to add, “do what you love and give, share it and that is true happiness.” Giving is a gift you give yourself also because without the oranges you can’t give away the orange juice.

I want to thank you for sharing in this blog as our gift and love to you all throughout the year, Happy Days!
