The Gift of Giving

I love giving things to people; whether it be a gift, donation, or just for fun. The feeling I get when I do is pure joy. Not only when I give it but when I see the other person's reaction afterwards. Giving doesn't always have to be in the form of an object. Sometimes it's in the form of a hug, kiss or smile. I think the best of all is when I give my time. Volunteering at places and spending some good quality time with someone is a gift in itself. The outcome of doing so is extremely rewarding for me and I know beneficial for the people on the receiving end. So, if you're looking for a way to help others and/or yourself I recommend the gift of giving.


"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
-Winston Churchill

"I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver."
-Maya Angelou

“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”
Lau Tzu

Yes, I also think that despite of fact, that sometimes people can be cruel and selfish, we should rather give than take. Sometimes I hear that there is not pure emphaty, but without empathy - could we really help others?
I wish You all the best.
