Whether thinking about what you’re going to do today, or for the rest of your life – generosity is a great place to start.
It’s different than tolerance which allows or endures.
Generosity is kind in spirit.
It leads to happiness and engagement in a world that appears increasingly unhappy and disconnected.
Generosity requires effort and self-trust such that you can take your mind off yourself and your problems long enough to be present and see someone else’s pain.
It takes guts and willingness to be generous.
It also takes emotional labor; enough that you’ll stay in the game when the biggest part of you wants to shut down and walk away.
