The Gift of Giving...

The only way you can truly get
more out of life for yourself
is to give part of yourself away.

It is important when you give something to someone that it be given with the right spirit, not out of a sense of obligation. One of the key principles in giving, however, is that the gift must be yours to give - either something you earned or created or maybe, simply, part of yourself.

Giving need not be in the form of money. It can be in the form of time, a pair of listening ears or just by simply being there to those who need it most.... a hug, a shoulder to cry on, to share laughter with, to lend a helping hand. Never say you can't give because you have no money.

I always think that if I give something away, someone else now possess it, and I will be left with less than I had before. In reality, when you give out of love, both the giver and receiver have more than they started with... and that's a fact :)
