One of the best parts of having your own blog is that you can make a sharp right turn and talk about something totally different whenever you want! And that is what I’m about to do!!!!
You might totally hate me after reading this and that’s okay. If I lose a few followers, that’s okay too. Today I am going to talk about giving. Giving in the charitable sense.
I come from the school of thought that you should do something you love, do it often and do it well. Go deep. Spend a lot of focused time on it. If you do these things, you will excel at it. If you tend to do a lot of things, they all get kind of watered down. You are okay at them but not really great. This is how I feel about donating my money and time.
When it comes to giving, I believe that everyone should donate something. It isn’t always financial. It can be time, labor, food, etc. I believe that I should choose something that is important to me. I believe that I should give often and give deep. I believe that I don’t have to scream to the world “I give my money to ________ .”
I love that you have a charity ( or in many cases, a lot of charities) that you support. I love that you are donating time and your money to help them. In fact, I love it so much that I’m not going to ask you to support my charity with your money. I’d rather you give more of your money to the charity that means the most to you. Donate often and donate more.
What would happen if we all adopted this practice? Would you feel that you were helping your cause more and annoying your pals less?
I just thought I’d throw that out there.
