The Generosity Expert
Happiness doesn’t come around looking for you. No, happiness requires that you engage in life with all of who you are and with all of what you have to give.
But giving isn’t always easy. Sometimes we give too much. Sometimes we give in the wrong way. Sometimes we just don’t where or how to give.
After spending a year waking up in the middle of the night with panic attacks, I had to admit something…. I didn’t give very much. I was a hard worker and I was honest and kind to people, but all in all, I wasn’t giving very much TO myself and I wasn’t giving very much OF myself. Thus began my journey of becoming a giver and finding happiness.
Happiness of course means different things to different people, and can can even mean different things at different times. For many, happiness is the feeling of well-being and contentment when things important to us are going well, but I’m talking about the sort of long-term, foundational happiness in which we have a feeling of well-being and contentment with who we are and our contribution to the world.
That’s the kind of happiness you find through giving to yourself, giving to others, and giving to the world.
