Today is going to be a fun day. This is going to be about giving to others and acknowledging what you already have (cause let’s face it, you take it for granted that you have a home, etc.). Well it is time to wake up and smell the coffee so to speak!
Today I want you to take the focus off of yourself and what you don’t have and start looking at other people and how you might be able to help them. Many people are in the same boat as yourself, and many people are in a situation that is much, much, worse! Yes, I said it, much worse! Cause if you are reading this article, somehow you have access to a computer and you are not struggling to find clean water to drink…need I say more? This day is not about how you need help but how you can help one other person, you know…pay it forward kind of day!!!
Anyone can do this, whether it is money or time, here are some ideas:
1) Give money to someone in need. You can give $5, $1 or a $100 it doesn’t matter. Not to your kids, or family…this is about giving with no ties and no need for acknowledgement about the giving. Tip someone more than usual, donate some money to charity. However you want to do it.
2) Give some of your time. If you are a professional, donate 15 minutes or an hour of expertise. Donate babysitting time or volunteer!
3) Give clothes or items. There are almost always items around your house that you do not use, wear, or need. This is almost always true with toys and clothes. You can give them to a shelter, someone moving, toys for tots, Salvation Army, whatever!
4) Give food. Give to someone in need, a dinner or a can of soup, it doesn’t matter.
A lot of times people feel that a can of soup or a dollar is so little that it does not mean much. That is the wrong perspective, this day it is about the intent of helping someone in need, not how much you can give. The intent of helping people is very powerful! Can you imagine if even half of the population did this tomorrow? Can you image the energetic effect that it would have, the love behind the giving and receiving? Powerful!!!!
REMOVE ALL JUDGEMENT!!!! This is not your time to judge why anyone else is in their situation! It is your time to find love in your heart and give from there....that is all....nothing less, nothing more. Giving should just be that..giving!
Would love to hear about what you give, inspire others and post your experience...
Coming next Soul Nourishment Day 2!
