Giving Back! Is It From the Heart Or Is Their an Art To It?


Traditionally we are in the holiday spirit and there are more holiday parties and donation events than ever. What does it really mean? Who benefits from it? Is it all for show? Great questions!!! Let’s chat!!!!

As a female human being by nature, we naturally nurture, give, and support. How much of what we give by nature is genuine in the name of the holiday season? I find that sometimes a lot of us fall into the hype of being seen, an instagram LIKE or a fake shout out. Let’s have a quick P H I L A N T H R O P I S T lesson ” A person who practices P H I L A N T H R O P Y”.  P H I L A N T H R O P Y  “Altruistic concern for human welfare and advancement, usually manifested by donations of money, property, or work to needy persons, by endowment of institutions of learning and hospitals, and by generosity to other socially useful purposes.”

If you have a minute, lets continue our chat. If we start to focus more on others in need than our current situation, giving would be more so from the heart you know more like the humane thing to do. If the traditional Holiday season is more about giving back why are most people concerned about receiving? Who gets or gives the best gifts? Who shares the most stunner pictures on so social media? As a society, we have forgotten about the basics meaning; we must keep up with the Jones who are also broke to be accepted. We have become so numb to our reality and live in our own fairy tale world believing what we settle to accept is ok.

We forget the most important factor about giving back US! You have to start with “the man in the mirror” in the words of Michael Jackson. A generous donation can be one you have to accept one day. So lets not act as if its an art to it, but show an act of kindness from the heart and do what’s right by being a blessing to others so you can continued to be blessed.
