Wisdom in small Steps
#1 Generosity starts with compassion and empathy
Giving in service to others is an open opportunity to fill our lives with joy. This doesn't mean that we should run around putting others needs before our own, it simply means that we can lend a helping hand where and however we can. Something as little as sharing a smile with a stranger can have more generosity in it than we might ever imagine.
Not everyone is in a position to give financially, however giving is something we all have the ability to do no matter what our own personal situation is. Sharing our compassion and empathy with others is a show of generosity equal to any material gift we could possibly give.
May we all give and receive with an open & joyful heart.
