We have all heard it before. “It is better to give than receive”
In every gift a person gives, they release a small part of themselves.
In the simple act they share their experiences and soul with a worthy receiver.
Maya Angelou said, “I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.”
“Liberates the Soul of the giver.”
With the emphasis on the giver,
What then are the responsibilities of the receiver?
Their responsibilities are simple and distinguished.
The receiver carries the pride and honor of both.
The receiver without notice balances the equation of giving.
The transfer of liberated souls.
The receiver must believe and understand that they were chosen. They are Worthy!
Accept without question yet full of gratitude.
Respect the thoughts and actions of the giver by taking pride in the small part of the giver’s soul.
Pay it forward!
How do you receive?
