How Can I Give in My Life?

When you give to another person from your heart, have you ever noticed how you feel? Whether you are volunteering, participating in a local community group or helping a family or friend – giving can have a positive impact on your wellbeing.

So how can you give in your life?

  • do something for a family member, a friend or a stranger
  • join a community group – i.e. a sporting club, choir or art group
  • thank someone now – you can do this by sending a card or gift, calling that person or thank them when you see them next!
  • smile more
  • volunteer.

When you are doing one of these activities, notice what happens to your wellbeing! However, as Mother Theresa says “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”

Just in case you need some more inspiration to encourage you to give – here are some quotes:

  • “Let us make one point, that we meet each other with a smile, when it is difficult to smile. Smile at each other, make time for each other in your family.” ~ Mother Teresa
  • “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” ~ Lao Tzu
  • “I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.” ~ Maya Angelou
  • “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” ~ Charles Dickens
  • “I must be willing to give whatever it takes to do good to others. This requires that I be willing to give until it hurts. Otherwise, there is no true love in me, and I bring injustice, not peace, to those around me.” ~ Mother Teresa
  • “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” ~ Winston Churchill
  • “I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.” ~ Khalil Gibran
  • “For it is in giving that we receive.” ~ St. Francis of Assisi
  • “Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.” ~ Brian Tracy
  • “When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.” ~ Wayne Dyer
  • “The giving of love is an education in itself.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
  • “Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
