life is a classroom: giving grace

life is a classroom

in this world, people are meant to help people. we don’t need to look for situations where we can extend ourselves with an open heart, we only need to wait, for they will appear when someone needs us most. no act of kindness is too small, and one of the most graceful acts is to give with the sole purpose of spreading love, expecting nothing in return. after all, giving is the greatest act of grace.

lessonplan

let’s take a moment to reflect. think about this question: can a miracle exist without giving? have you encountered a situation lately where you could have lifted someone’s spirit? an elderly man sitting alone at a restaurant, a friend or coworker who can’t catch a break with her kids, the barista who you typically ignore. think of a time when you could’ve gone out of your way to simply make a connection with someone. would your future self be proud of you?

homework

choose to see opportunities where you can give. here are three simple ideas:

  1. make dinner for a friend.
  2. talk to a stranger when you’re out and about.
  3. write someone a note telling them why you’re thankful for them.

this year, give and you will receive. grant a miracle for someone in need of joy, and make the world a more graceful place.

philosophy: giving is the greatest act of grace. when we give back, we are benefiting the greater good. no gift is too small. all that matters is that we extend ourselves with an open heart and give with the sole purpose of spreading love, sharing warmth and touching the hearts of others with grace.
