Can you believe it? December is almost over! We wanted to leave this month by acknowledging the two very powerful forces of generosity and gratitude, hopefully 2 experiences/feelings that you felt during this holiday season. Brian Tracy, a motivational speaker and author, said this, “Always give without remembering. Always receive without forgetting.” We believe that this quote is a remarkable one, ultimately helping us lead happier and more wholeheartedly joyful lives. When life turns into keeping score, things quickly go awry and we get angry and resentful. Practicing the combination of gratitude (see our blog posts in November) and generosity (see our blog posts in December) helps to make life enjoyable, strengthens our relationships with others, and ultimately bolsters our surrounding community. We believe so deeply in this equation that it will definitely be making a reappearance as we set goals for the new year (…hint hint for January’s theme?). Until then, have a safe and happy New Years Eve!
