The power of giving

Somebody once told me that fine artists never give away originals. It made me wonder. I don’t think generosity excludes you from being whatever you are or want to be. Sharing is a beautiful act of kindness and I encourage everyone to share a bit of yourself with the world. Whether it’s knowledge, vision, some needed advice, a few words of comfort, some of your homemade cooking, a couple of bucks to a stranger who has forgotten their wallet in line or your beautiful art.

No matter our situation, we can always share something with someone who might need it. Or just to show your appreciation for them. I think it makes our world a more beautiful place. I have wanted to give someone I know a fun little surprise for quite a while now. Procrastinating is a bit of a bad habit of mine, but today I decided to make it happen. If your heart keeps telling you to do something, you better listen to it. I hope she will like it, like I like her.

      How sweet of you Annemieke. 🙂 I hope that your gifts make you feel as good as it makes them feel. That is so important.!

    Jerney I know your friend will love the gift you have planned for her. I agree it is nice to do special things big or small for others.
    I have a sister in law with Parkinson who cannot drive anymore so I like to take her out shopping to her favourite stores every couple weeks.
    She enjoys getting out and always treats me for lunch.

      That’s love! It’s the little things like this that means the world to the other person. <3

      Oh I hope so Dianne, it’s a small token of appreciation, but it’s put together with a lot of love. Now fingers crossed that the mail system will handle the little package with care. 😉

    Such lovely thoughts and really so easy. It is not hard to do something kind and make someone’s day.

      Thank you! No, it’s not hard at all. Even if all you can afford is a heartfelt smile to give to a stranger. That is always so appreciated and you might even be surprised of the effect of something that is so easy to give. 🙂
