I recently read a funny saying that made me burst out laughing: “I meditate. I burn candles. I drink green tea, and I still want to smack some people.” Yes . . . we are all human sharing a human experience. How true that sometimes we are just going to get angry with others. But it’s also true it’s okay to honor your true feelings.
A thought came to me this past weekend while I was at dinner with a dear friend: Our relationships are greatly enhanced when we not only generously give, but also when we generously receive. I’ve personally found it’s so easy to remember to give to those around us, and even volunteering our time is fantastic, as I discussed in my “National Volunteer Week: You are a Point of Light” post. But do we also make sure that we allow ourselves to generously receive from those around us?
