Given to Give

This life is not about you.  This life is not about me.  This life is about others.  Life is about helping others.  Life is about building others up.  Life is about listening to others.  Life is about loving others.  Life is about giving to others, what you have been given.  Each of us have been given specific gifts, talents, and abilities.  Each of us are beautifully different.  We all have a uniqueness that adds to the color of life.  We all have something to add to this world.  We all have value to add to this life.  We have been given to give!  In order for us to give what we have been given, we need to know who we are, we need to know what we have been given, to give.  Take the time to self-examine, self-reflect.  SLOW DOWN.  Take a step back.  Who are you?  What is your identity?  What is your life foundation?  What fire burns within you?  What excites you?  Where are you going?  In order to help others, you first have to help yourself.  In order to understand others, you have to understand yourself.  In order to give to others, you have to know and accept what has been given to you.
