Give more than you expect to receive.

Give before you get...

You want bigger and better things in life. Don't we all? One thing I truly believe we all need to do before we can experience our best life is to give as much of ourselves to others as possible. Now before you go off to donate a kidney or eyeball or something, that's not quite what I mean. When I talk about giving as much of ourselves as possible I'm referring to doing for others. Think about something for a minute... imagine you're 88 years old, sitting on the front porch in your rocking chair looking back on your life. What kind of life would you see? If you continue living on the same path as you are today, will you be proud of how much you did for others? Have you made a difference in the lives of those around you? No matter how small, the effort of giving something of ourselves be it time, money, a kind word, etc, puts in motion the forces of the universe that will bring that kindness back to us. It really is true that you get what you give. Before you can have all that you want and continue to reap the rewards of a life well lived you need to give and give some more. Not only will you be making a difference in this world but you will also be helping yourself more than you realize. I wish I would have realized this sooner because something so simple can make such a difference.
