Giving and Receiving

Are you better at giving or receiving? I wonder…

I recently read a newsletter that offered Brene Brown’s quote below, along with the author’s observations on our culture’s ability to give and receive. Her findings suggest we are better givers than receivers; in general, I agree with the statement.  This gift giving season, we have an opportunity to develop our capacities to give, receive or both. In practice toward embodiment of generosity, we come to see that ultimately the gift, the giver and the receiver are all the same.

What are your giving/receiving abilities? Have you set a powerful intention to expand your capacity to give and receive in all forms? I wonder…

“Until we can receive with an open heart, we’re never really giving with an open heart.  When we attach judgment to receiving help, we knowingly, or unknowingly attach judgment to giving help.”  Brene Brown
