To Give

"We make a living from what we get. We make a life from what we give." - Sir Winston Churchill
With all the talk of economic crisis and people losing jobs around us, as well as general feelings of debt most of us have come to accept as normal, it couldn't be better timing that I came across this quote. When is the last time you GAVE, and perhaps more importantly, gave freely? Gave to someone honestly just to give - not to get adulation or adoration? This can perhaps be an uncomfortable question because people pleasing can at times be a not-so-positive asset. So today, on Easter Sunday, when many of us celebrate with family and loved ones, take a moment to digest the above quote and take an honest, heart felt peak into your own lives and see where perhaps you can give a little more. Namaste, and Happy Easter x

Beautiful post. I agree with what you've said about "people pleasers" - they are some of the most unhappy people I know! Doing the right things for the wrong reasons is never fun!

When we truly give from the heart, both to ourselves and others, there is no resentment, no guilt, only joy.

Thanks for the reminder :) Hope you had a great Easter.
