How to Balance Giving and Receiving

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Today is the day we announce our 12 Days of Christmas $75 Amazon gift card winner. For the past 12 days, we have explored the topics of miracles, abundance, reducing stress, taking action, following your bliss, feeling more love and compassion and more. I have loved all of the comments on the blog and my free facebook group.

Before I announce our winner, I wanted to bring up giving and receiving. Tomorrow is Christmas Eve. A lot of moms and dads have been busy creating a beautiful Christmas for their families. This is the season for giving generously of both your time and your resources. However, a part of the season is gracefully receiving. We have probably all heard the child who says, “But I didn’t want that.” And you gently address it with understanding. You say something like, it is the thought that counts or encourage the child to be thankful. No matter what, you teach your kiddos to say thank you- when they are excited and when they are not. Good parents teach their children gratitude.

However, I see a lot of adults who are incapable of receiving gracefully. If he or she receives an extravagant gift, a reaction might be, “You shouldn’t have…” Receiving gifts gracefully is just as important as giving generously. Some people give and give and never open their channels to receive. Creating wide open channels to receive is a key to abundance. Accept and welcome all the good coming to you.

Every time you give, also be open to receiving. You have probably heard the saying, “It is better to give than receive.”  Both are great. It is true that giving with no strings attached is a heart opening experience. Then be sure to also open your heart to receiving gifts, compliments, and opportunities. You will be creating a beautiful balance.

Now it is time to announce our winner:
