Living Generous

December 21, 2011

in the generous life

A few things you might do over the next few days ~

  • Smile at someone who is tired (offer help if you can).
  • Give away one of your presents (a nice one).
  • Make love with your husband, slowly.
  • Pray for the people in the room.
  • Thank God for three things (more is OK).
  • Be patient with someone.
  • Give someone the benefit of the doubt.
  • Find a private moment to kiss your sweetie.
  • Do something that really moves you outside of your comfort zone.

Being generous is a lifestyle change.  It’s a change of heart and mind.  Start with your sweetie and those closest to you.  You can learn from the doing.  Getting better at it just takes practice.

“Be patient with someone.” – This is a challenge these days especially when all we could think of is get through with the holiday rush. But yes, it pays to slow down and be patient with someone, whether it’s the grumpy cashier or cabbie.
