The priceless gift of giving, not cost counting

It’s been a heck of a week for various reasons. I’ve felt pushed and pulled in all directions and ill at ease for much of it.

The best of the week, indeed the antidote to it as I reflect on the demands on me, was giving something away.

At a time, some years ago, when I had very little money, I bought lots of little ‘Be Kind’ badges to give away. I wear one almost daily and regularly share a pleasant few words with someone who appreciates it. Then I give them the badge, which seems to make their day.

Every time I do this, it’s improved how I feel. I believe it’s improved how other people feel. I’ve found them almost priceless.

Kindly, keep giving.
