Are you having one of those days that just
got started off the front foot?
Don’t worry, it happens to everyone. The most
important question is what are you going to do
now? Are you going to let yourself get into
a funk or are you going to turn it around?
Be grateful! When you are grateful, it is impossible to focus
on the negative and you instantly start shifting
towards a positive point of view with will automatically
start to make you feel good (1).
An altruistic sense of giving today may find you being generous with your time and energy. You may find yourself involved in charity work, or perhaps there is someone in your life who could benefit from your desire to help. We may feel selfless when we give our time, talent, energy, or finances. We also gain the good feeling that glows within us from the joy of giving, as well as the resultant increase in the good in our lives. This selflessness may be found in the intent, however, for when we give without thought to what we will gain, we are more likely to benefit than if we give with ulterior motives. Sincerity is meaningful between people as well as energetically, so follow your desire to give and let the giving be its own reward.
We are all called to give differently using our unique talents and abilities. Some organizations or causes may move us more than others, and we should follow that feeling. The universe is urging us to the place where we can make the most difference. It is also important to balance giving with allowing yourself to be nurtured. If you give all you have, you may not be able to keep giving. Energetically, giving and receiving are two aspects of the same energy. By following your inspiration to help today, you place yourself in the cycle of giving and receiving and will be nourished (2).
