Live each moment by giving.
Life is a series of events that we experience moment to moment. How we live each moment, how we make others feel, determines the quality of our life.
“Not how long, but how well you have lived is the main thing.”
― Lucius Annaeus Seneca
It’s all about Quality than Quantity
A short life well lived is more valuable than a long life that’s been destructive.
This brings us to think about what do we really value in our lives?
If the life is spent on just fulfilling one’s cravings and greed, then even a long life would not be long enough.
How do you improve life’s quality?
Life is Given to Give
A great thinker once said, “Life is to give.”
Nature is a great example that shows us what it is to be truly giving.
Every aspect of nature exists only to give.
From a seed – to a seedling – to a plant – to a tree – to flowers – to fruits. The plant kingdom at every stage gives itself for the well-being of all living creatures.
Nature inspires us to give. Every human being has the potential to give more than one can imagine in their lifetime.
We only have to be willing to give. We can choose to be generous at every step of the way until the end of our time here.
It could be in any form. It could be in thoughts like wishing well for someone. Or it could be doing a simple action. Even a smile to someone is a good enough.
What matters is how one approaches every single moment. If we have the attitude of giving rather than taking, know that you are living a worthwhile life.
Improve Life’s Quality. Give More
Since our inception, each one of us gets so much from every aspect of life. We are supported with resources every step of the way. This very realisation can inspire us to live a life of giving.
What is preventing you from giving?
Here are a few things that may prevent you from giving. If you take notice of these and be watchful, you can bypass these distractions. Then you can expand your abilities, live each moment more with meaning throughout your life.
What’s preventing you from giving is thinking that you do not have enough.
The truth is that there is enough for everyone. If this was not true, the world would not be operating.
Everyone gets –
- Enough air to breathe.
- Enough resources to live.
- Enough opportunities to make a successful life.
So release yourself from this belief that there is not enough or there is lack of something.
Instead, cultivate the belief in being content.
You Can Have it All
When you believe that you have everything, your approach to life changes.
With this belief, you feel content and fulfilled in life. All your actions stem from a place of contentment. You will be a more giving and generous person and therefore you will attract more of goodness in your own life.
The quality of your life matters. How do you improve life’s quality?
