It's that time of year again – the week when most traveling motivational speakers get to be home with the family prepping for "the big day!" And fortunately, I'm no exception. I even got to attend church last Sunday where I heard the exact perfect message about Thanksgiving from the wonderful Rev. Karen Wolfson at the Center for Spritual Living.
It was about the GIVING part of thanksgiving. She said that if there's something you need in your life – then give it away.
That really got me to thinking. Frequently when something is missing in my life, my tendency can be to start feeling a little resentful. Like, here I am doing all this for everyone and NO ONE seems to even notice. The LEAST someone could do is express a little appreciation. Please tell me I'm not alone. Have you experienced anything like that?
Ah, well. I know exactly how I handle this the next time I have this experience. From now on…
- When I need love – I will GIVE love.
- When I need comforting – I will GIVE comfort.
- When I need appreciation – I will GIVE appreciation.
How about you? Is there something you need right now? Why not give it away!
