We all give many gifts to this world big and small.
When we give our gifts freely and honestly we are being true to ourselves.
When we hold back our gifts because of insecurity, doubt, shame, or any other reason….
We die a little on the inside.
Gifts we give can make our light glow brighter.
When that happens and others truly see us in that light, we give others the courage to be bright and shiny as well.
It also gives us the energy to keep giving.
On the other hand, we have to be open to receive gifts from others as well.
When we receive gifts, it also refuels us while kindling that light in others.
Do you need practice in one or both of these areas?
I think sometimes we might be very one sided…giving too much and not being open to receiving. Or taking too much and not giving all that we have to give.
Finding that balance helps to create balance with others and within ourselves.
What area do you need to focus on? Giving? Receiving? Both?
How will you do it?
