As we are wrapping up our summer vacations and getting back into our regular schedules, some of that easy breezy summer flow might start to transform into overly scheduled stress.
Today, in the spirit of keeping that relaxed, easy flow part of you alive, I want you to think about how generous you are in your daily life. And I’m not referring to donating money or volunteering—although those are wonderful to do. I am talking more about being generous with your attention and allowing good energy to flow from your heart to others.
For example, when grocery shopping, do you look the cashier in the eye and say thank you? Or hold the elevator for someone coming into the office building? Or verbalize the compliment that you might normally just think?
It’s about being generous and kind when it is not required. When you have nothing to gain other than the energetic heart connection to another in our human family.
There are so many simple ways to be more generous in our daily interactions. This increased mindfulness of others does not take any additional time; it simply requires more of your attention and a willingness to Be Here Now. Not in your head, not in the future, not on your phone, but actually present in the only real life, happening here and now interaction in which you are engaged.
Being kind and generous regularly is a lifestyle choice and requires the same conscious intention as any other.
I would love to hear how you increase your generosity toward others or how kindness from a stranger has impacted your life.
I hope you have an amazing week and, as always, take care of you.
