Acquiring vs Giving
Have you acquired so much stuff that you have no place to store everything, yet you keep on shopping! Next time you feel the urge to shop- Give instead! The gift of giving will make you feel so satisfied- you will continue to do it!
Here are some ideas to get you started!
- On line at Starbucks- buy the person behind you a cup of coffee. (don’t go to Starbucks- but love ice cream- buy the person behind you an ice cream cone.
- Pass a homeless person on the street, give them your left over lunch or dinner.
- Put some change in a tip jar.
- At the grocery store- pick up something extra and donate it to your local shelter.
- Give a compliment!
Bonus- your children will learn what it means to be KIND!
Have a wonderful day! Bet you have the next 5 Gifts ready!
