My generosity is unconditional.
I do favors without keeping score. I wash dishes in the office break room when no one is around to see. I pour coffee into a travel mug when my spouse is running late for work in the morning. I let my kids eat chocolate chip pancakes for dinner once in a while.
I make anonymous gifts. I drop off bags of food and personal hygiene products at a local homeless shelter or food bank. I donate money to charity through a private foundation or online platforms.
I take up a collection if I know that a family at my church is struggling. I give the cash to our minister to pass on, so they can receive help without any embarrassment or feelings of indebtedness.
I treat others with kindness and respect regardless of their relationship to me.
I leave substantial tips for restaurant workers and delivery drivers. I contact companies to let them know when a shop employee goes out of their way to answer my questions and help me find the item that I am looking for.
I remain courteous when someone speaks harshly to me. I recognize that they may be having a rough day. I show them the patience I would appreciate in the same situation.
Today, I make gifts with no strings attached. I enjoy the warm glow that comes with giving. My satisfaction is guaranteed. I feel more joyful and connected.
