Giving frees us from the familiar territory of our own needs

by opening our mind to the unexplained worlds

occupied by the needs of others.

Barbara Bush

 

Affirmation: I have a giving spirit.

I believe that I have been created to help others by giving my time, thoughts and worldly possessions. I give naturally and without reservations because I know that it is my calling.

I feel a sense of accomplishment when others are grateful for what they receive from me. Even when the blessings of my kindness go unrecognized, I still feel fulfilled because I know that I am doing the work I am meant to do.

The more I give, the more is restored to me. My blessings are insurmountable and always forthcoming. I cannot even count the ways I am blessed, they are too numerous. I know that my giving spirit manifests blessing into my life.

My spirit is uplifted when I am able to help others. Whether they need a kind word, listening ear, or financial assistance, I make myself available to give as I am able.

 

Today, I reinforce my commitment to giving selflessly.

 

I receive tremendous joy and rich satisfaction when I am able to share my blessings with others. I know that each instance in which I choose to share kindness results in the world being just a little brighter.

 

Homework/ Self-Reflective Questions/ Journal Prompts:

1. How do I react when others who are able to give choose to withhold selfishly?

2. Do I show gratitude when I am the recipient of kind thoughts, words, or other blessings?

3. Do I recognize that even the smallest positive gestures are blessings?

 

Have a totally awesome week!!
