GIVE and take
I've been thinking today a bit about GIVING...over the past several years I've really been blessed because of what I've GIVEN to God, to my friends, to my clients and to perfect strangers who've found me on the internet through a blog post, picture, etc ...it is true that when you GIVE you do RECEIVE.
...Giving also can create vulnerability: Giving opens us up to be hurt, disappointed or feeling like we've been taken for granted. I've often felt hurt or disappointed and that my giving has been taken for granted many times -- BUT!--- the Blessings I've received from GIVING always outweigh the pain. Staying focused on the positives of giving always makes me want to give more and help more people and love more!! I don't ever want to get jaded or fearful regarding how my GIVING will be received. Don't EVER be Afraid to GIVE!! Your blessings will COME!!
I've had a couple GREAT days~ Tues night we had another family bonfire and then yesterday Travis "kidnapped" me for a date day~ we had a BLAST together just talking and loving each other! It was wonderful!!! We didn't workout yesterday, but we did make it there today for a chest workout.
AND GUESS WHAT??!!! I hit an all time personal Best on bench a #155 one rep max!!
The rest of my day has been spent on website stuff and cleaning my house. I am also planning on going running after my salmon digests smile
keep on GIVING !!
