Last weekend, I listened to a message about generosity and giving of oneself. Giving and living a generous life, not only improves our emotional wellness; but it has significant benefits for our physical health. There is legitimate research that shows generous people live happier, more fulfilling, and longer lives.

Before I got sober, I did not really view myself as a selfish person. Most likely, because I didn’t think about it…because as soon as I had a good look at my behavior leading up to that point, it was clear that I was in fact a very selfish man. As I began to adapt to and adopt a lifestyle of giving, I witnessed my behaviors change and felt my heart transform into something different. It was a process of becoming something different, so it didn’t happen overnight. The more I sought to give, serve, or help others, the less I focused on my problems, my selfish desires, and my addiction. I experienced emotional and psychological healing by becoming a more giving person.

Many people feel they must TAKE if they want to survive or succeed. The truth is, you will always receive more from giving than you will ever receive by taking from someone or some place. When you give, everyone receives.

GIVE it a try!

Have a great week!
