"You must love with your time, your hands, and your hearts. You need to share all that you have." Mother Teresa
There's a tendency to hold on to the special things in our lives. And hold on tightly. Maybe we're afraid of losing what we have. Or perhaps we're worried about replacing what is lost. For those reasons or a thousand more, we hold on to what we have.
And refuse to let go.
Yet nestled within each of us is a limitless reservoir of strength, power and might, an endless wellspring that never runs out, never runs dry. No matter how much we use or how much we give away, this eternal fountain just continues to pour out more. Way more than we can ever use, far more than we ll ever need. And this infinite reserve of compassion and kindness needs to be shared with the rest of the world.
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill
Instead of hoarding our God given talents and gifts, we need to let go - and start sharing what we have. There's no reason to save, store and stockpile our precious resources. Or keep them all to ourselves. Regardless of how much we give, or how often, we'll always have more. As a matter of fact, the more we give to others, the more we have to give away.
How can this possibly be the case? How can we actually have more by giving more? Simply put, giving ourselves away, especially to those in need, gives our lives meaning, fullness and richness and provides an unmatched feeling of fulfillment like nothing else on earth. Giving ourselves away makes us feel better, makes our world better and significantly enhances virtually every aspect of our lives.
How can it get much better than that?
"You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give." Kahlil Gibran
You too need to start giving all that you've got. And give some more. Don't worry about running out of gas. Or not having enough left for yourself. Just give - and give some more. Even when you think you've given all that you've got, you've got more. Even when it feels like you're running on empty, you've still got more left in your tank.
There's more caring, sharing and thoughtfulness locked inside of you, more inspiration, insight and encouragement than you ever imagined. It's right there, bubbling just below the surface. More of everything that's good, more of everything that's right, more everything you'll ever need to make a world of difference - in your life and those of others as well. And it's waiting to be given away.
When it comes to giving, to caring, to sharing, can enough ever be nearly enough? Can we really give others too much love, too much hope or too much help? In fact, can we ever give too much of anything?
"Give, give, give - what is the point of having experience, knowledge, or talent if I don t give it away?" Isabel Allende
There is so much you can give, so much you can contribute to those all around you. So many people you can help; so many individuals you can touch. Right now, more than ever before, what the world needs is someone to care, someone to share, someone willing to help those who need it the most. What the world needs right now is you... giving all that you've got.
It's been said that what goes around comes around. And when it comes to giving yourself away, nothing could ring truer. You'll discover that the more you're willing to give, the more you'll get back in return. Simple little daily acts, like offering a helping hand, a heartfelt smile or words of encouragement to those in need can works wonders.
These giving moments will not only significantly brighten the days and heighten the spirits of the people you touch, it'll send a beaming ray of sunshine streaming into your life as well.
The Bottom Line: Get busy giving yourself away. And then give and give and give some more.
