I like to consider this one during the month of giving. I wasn’t always very good at receiving, whether it was a gift (when I had nothing to give in return) or help or even a simple “thank you”.

I felt as if I owed the person, even brushing off the kindness. Yet, when I give something to someone, I have no preconceptions that they owe me anything. It isn’t even a consideration.

I encourage you to pay attention to how you receive. Let your heart open. Let yourself fully receive. And let yourself really feel there is nothing to give in return.
