Giving is Receiving

by Leslie Sann

It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.
~ Sarah Bernhardt

I continue to be touched when people tell me how useful my books are to them. It brings comfort to many as they realize that Life Happens to all of us and even if they get upset about it, they can Calm Down and Lift Up. I’m also told they are motivated to shift focus so they can find gifts in the midst of their circumstances.

I’m grateful to be part of the cycle of abundance. I wrote two books and gave them to the world. They land and someone gives back to me their appreciation and tells me how they make good use of what I offered. I give, they receive. They give, I receive. This is true abundance. Giving — receiving — giving — receiving. The cycle expands and gives even more to all participating.

You don’t have to write a book to be part of the cycle of goodness. Little things make a big difference. What is a simple little thing you could do for somebody else that might help them shift upward into a higher state of joy, gratitude, awareness of the good in their lives? Maybe they will get there immediately or maybe just knowing you were there with and for them will plant a seed that will grow into joy.

Even if that seed doesn’t germinate inside of them, you may notice that you get to live in the goodness of your giving and that in itself is abundance.

‘Tis the season of giving and receiving. Let’s go out and do some good!

Blessings of Peace and Joy,
