Generosity begins not with what I have but with what I am inside and who I am. Generosity is measured not by what I give away but by what i keep for myself.
If I can live with small amounts and simple things, by reining in my wants and desires;
I will have more that I can share with others.
Generosity springs from poverty of spirit,
which does not mean being poor as having nothing to give
but keeping one’s needs small and simple that I may have more to give.
For no one is so poor or bereft of gifts that he has nothing to give and share.
Often the things that are really appreciated and sought by others are not material things; but act of love and caring like a smile, a touch, time spent together, company, presence, just being there.
And the more I flex my generosity muscles, the more generous I become.
