If you didn’t get what you wanted for Christmas, there’s still time to give yourself the gift that keeps on giving – Giving!
Give yourself permission to give. Give what, you ask? Give what it is that you have, not what you’ve accumulated.
Yes, it’s helpful to share knowledge and resources with others and that is considered generous. The giving I’m referring to comes from you – not from what you have, but from who you are, well past the role you play.
Give away your light. Let it shine on everyone you encounter. It begins by giving everyone you interact with your attention.
Attention without agenda. Just keep an open space in you for them as you interact. That means to be with them rather than with your thoughts about them or what they are saying. When you open a space for someone, you’re not interfering with what they are communicating by keeping your attention on you. When you open, you can take them all in, and what comes back out is your light, not your opinion.
Giving your light will always be welcome; your opinion may not.
Giving is really win-win because giving your light feels good and it’s always appropriate because it’s a one-size-fits-all gift.
If you’re searching for a New Year’s Resolution that will succeed, consider adding the gift of giving to you list. It’s the light that will make your New Year bright.
All the best & Happy New Year,
