Generosity

For my whole life I have wanted to be less selfish and more generous, to hold on less tightly to the things that are given to me. Turns out it just takes practice and time, plus opportunity. We are in a position to be able to give to a whole lot of people in a whole lot of different ways right now, and I must say that what it feels like is that this is what we were made to do. To open our hearts and our wallets and our time banks. There are limits, of course; we can only give what we have. But as we keep on giving, I find that our hearts and wallets and time banks are filled so that we can give even more. Life is good.
