I Receive As Easily As I Give

If you’re anything like most human beings, you are easily able to give to others. Whether it be your time, helping a friend, giving money, a thoughtful gift, cooking them a meal, or even a word of encouragement, you give of yourself freely. But allowing yourself to receive these same gifts from others may not be so easy.

Many times we feel a sense of guilt at the thought of “taking” what others are offering to us. Why is it so easy for us to give but so hart to receive? The answer, I believe, is value.

When we give to others, we feel good and get a sense of our own value. but when receiving what others are offering to us, we may feel like we are taking something that we don’t deserve. But you deserve all of the goodness that others are offering to you.

Today I encourage you to allow yourself to receive as easily and as freely as you give. Remind yourself that you are deserving and worthy to receive all of the goodness that is offered to you. Please understand that just as good as you feel giving to others, they feel as good giving to you and when you freely receive what they are offering, you allow them to feel good about giving.

So this week as you give, remember to receive all that is being offered to you.

LUV YOURSELF MONDAY

Magnificent Monday to you! Of course, by now, you all know that Monday is my favorite day of the week! I luv it because it’s the beginning of a brand new week and a chance to forgive any missteps we have experienced over the past week!

How are you starting your week off? I encourage you to begin by being good to yourself! Luv yourself! Tell yourself something good about yourself! So many of us go through our day with a negative attitude about ourselves. We tell our friends and co-workers how great they are, but we seldom express that same luv for ourselves.

So today, Monday, make it a point to be good to yourself! Find something wonderful about yourself and remind yourself of that fact all day today. Remind yourself of your goodness! Remind yourself of your intelligence! Remind yourself of your kindness to others! Remind yourself of your divinity! Remind yourself of your magnificence!

In luv and dessert,
