December Theme Editorial: Generosity
It’s that time of year again, the season of giving. There are so many ways to practice generosity. Saying thank you and showing gratitude are two very important ways to be generous with your words and actions.
- Generosity is a learned character trait that involves both attitude and action.
- Generosity is a basic, personal, moral compass to life.
- Generosity involves giving to others those things that are good for others.
- Generosity always intends to enhance the true wellbeing of those to whom it gives.
- Generosity gives: money, possessions, time, attention, aid, encouragement, emotional and availability.
- Generosity is a virtue, to practice it for the good of others also means that doing so achieves one’s own true, long–term good as well.
- Generosity is in people’s genuine enlightened self-interest to learn and practice.
Guidelines for Generosity
1. Give enough so that it is meaningful and useful, and give to people who you think will use it wisely, not those who will squander it.
Someone who gives without worrying about whether the money will be spent wisely may still be considered generous, but may not be acting ‘well’. Giving generously is about helping to meet the needs of others. Knowing that someone is going to spend the money on drink or drugs is not helping to meet their needs.
2. Do not give so much that you cannot meet your own needs
It is especially important not to give so much that you are in danger of enriching someone else at your expense.
3. Be gracious in accepting the appropriate gifts of others
Always be gracious in accepting gifts from others.
4. Generosity is not about personal gain
It is particularly important to ensure that you never exploit others for personal gain.
I am very grateful to all our readers who throughout the past 39 months have encouraged us to continue with our newsletter and who have enjoyed the articles. I am very grateful to our content contributors, without them, there would be so much less value in the Eco Lifestyle and Home News. All of your support has been so appreciated and I dedicate this last edition to our readers and contributors.
Thank you for reading our newsletter. ~ Dianne McKenzie & Aeowyn, Cecilie Bodman and our content contributors.
Eco Lifestyle and Home News comes to you in its thirty seventh edition of our Newsletter. The creators of this newsletter are Dianne McKenzie & Cecilie Bodman, real estate associate brokers for Equity New Mexico. We decided to produce a conscious newsletter that has information about some real estate but more about living, playing & working. We also wanted to include our professional friends’ expertise as it relates to home, health, well-being, & lifestyle.
Please introduce us to your friends and family for their real estate needs, whether they are considering buying a home or thinking about getting their home sold this year. Many thanks.
