LOVING LIFE 101: Learning how to give.
Fill your cup up until it overflows and give from the overflow.
We think it’s a good and spiritual thing to pour ourselves out to utter exhaustion. We are even taught this is sacrificial but is it?
I am learning that in order to truly give from a place of love, it also has to be for the highest good of all. I am included in that ALL and so are you.
When we fill up our cups until they overflow, that overflow pours out to everyone around us.
When we have rested everyone benefits from that rest? When we are eating properly, and exercising everyone benefits from the energy exercise, and nutrition provides.
The biggest and most important one is filling our cups up until they overflow spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. When we are empty in these areas we are given fumes to ourselves and others and in turn, everything burns out. Our relationships with ourselves and everything and everyone around us suffer.
So fill up with taking care of ourselves from the inside out and letting that flow over to everyone around us.
