There is so much to gain when we just give it away.

That’s not the purpose of turning our efforts outward, however it is the direct result when we choose to serve and help others.

It never fails for me, and I often have to remind myself. But, when I seek to be of service to others – strangers or not – I’m always rewarded in some way, shape or form down the line. It never fails. This “payback” isn’t always linear, as it can come in a way I would never expect much later in the timeline. However, there is something within me that knows exactly where it came from.

And every time I’m humbled and grateful for the experience.

So, today I will once again look to give away a part of myself in order for someone else to feel recognized, included, cared for, heard or Loved.

Because it fills me up when someone else does it for me.
