I’m so tired of one hand giving while the other hand holds a list of clauses that go with it.
Somebody offered me something. Then, when things didn’t go as they wanted, they took it away.
I felt a sudden horror of dishonour. But, then I searched my own nature, and I’m sure I’ve done it too.
Given something, even a smile, and expected one in return.
How often do we really give? Honestly give. Give with out no thought of what someone is going to do with that gift. No thought of return. No thought of consequences. A true gift of love. How often do we give without a silent but heavy back pack full of ‘buts’?
So, instead of laying in bed and thinking negative thoughts, I will slowly turn myself into the person I wish other people were. I invite you to come with me. One day at a time – to give with true kindness, no strings attached.
(and honestly - I don't mind if you don't do it! You're off the hook for this one.)
