Presents are made for the pleasure of who gives them, not the merits of who receives them-
There are many different types of giving. There’s the giving that we do to feel good about ourselves, the giving we do because we expect something in return and the type of giving which comes from a place of kindness. Sadly, the gift of kindness is all but forgotten in today’s world. Does this make us all terribly rotten people? Nope, it’s much better to give a little than not to give at all, no matter what your motivation is.
Although giving kindness does give us cause for reflection. When we give to others and ourselves, is it from a place of insecurity, inner pride, desire? Or is giving kindness from a place of peaceful confidence, of unadulterated kindness which, just like the brilliant blue sky above, is always present, unchanging and limitless in nature.
Have a beautiful day today and please be well!
Giving the gift of kindness is both the easiest and hardest gift of all to give. Have a wonderful day.
You are so not kidding! I find it particularly hard to be kind to myself at times, especially after a long holiday weekend. Take it easy this week. 🙂
It was a very giving day yesterday for me. The weather gave enough as well to make it happen. =)
It was a pretty awesome feeling!! Like you said from your post, we often give with something in mind in return.
But giving from your whole heart… aaahh… you can almost hear chimes with the wind. Know what I mean?
I know exactly what you mean. 😉 Be well this evening and I am so glad you had a beautiful day yesterday!
You, too! 🙂
