Giving = Getting

The mark of the New Year has come and gone.  Celebrations done, kisses given, champagne is gone, fireworks have burst their final hurrah…

It’s tradition and a given that most of us will have created some kind of new years resolution.  It’s funny that you would need the new year to make such life changing changes in your life, but if it works, then all the best to you – whatever works.

Laundry on the Line posted a great blog on paying it forward, and I wanted to share it with you.  I’ve always believed that everything you do has a chain reaction that could compound in ways you’ll never know.  The smile you give to someone passing, the change you give to someone asking, the door you help hold open for someone coming, etc.  These small gestures can be passed along. 

Giving the best in your life results in your getting.  You get satisfaction in knowing that by putting your best self out there – you can expect good things back.  I work for a non-profit who help people with mental and physical disabilities.  It’s amazing how much I’ve learned from them on appreciating life and being the best we can be.  Giving = Getting.
