All my life, I have been told or taught to take something. Take a good degree, Take a good job, Take a great salary, Take Hike, Take Control, Take Pride. Just Take.I was so blinded by this concept of taking, that couldn’t see that there is something called GIVING also.
Working in the social sector I have realized it is never about taking alone.It never was and it could never be. You just can’t take everything. Because at the end you only have two hands and there is only little which can be filled in those hands.I realized that I have to learn to give not because someone wants it, but because I need it to feel the balance.I realized that the measurements of life would turn out to be wrong if you only take, but it will be measured correctly once you learn to give.
People say Ask and you shall receive but today ill say give and you will receive.
Give whatever you can to whoever;you can whenever you can. Give some hugs, some smiles, some love, some freedom. Give someone a reason to believe in themselves, a direction to find themselves, a chance to heal themselves.Give and you will know that in this great scheme of life, you will receive abundantly when give.
In Giving Mode with the children of Touching Lives.
Feeling alive while I give.
