I’ve been trying to get things tidy before Christmas comes, to get everything sorted before the end of the year.
Isn’t that often the experience that many of us have at this time of year, during the build up towards Christmas?
Too many things to do, not enough time.
So here are my two generosity tips to help you survive at this time of year:
Firstly, go easy on yourself, be generous to yourself.
“Perfect is the enemy of good”, we know that saying but I also think perfect is the enemy of joy.
Christmas doesn’t have to be perfect, the build-up doesn’t have to be perfect.
Find time to spend quality time with your friends and with your family and find time for joy. Perfect doesn’t necessarily always fit with Christmas.
Secondly, let people give you stuff. If they want to, let people give you presents.
We find joy when we give so maybe try not to avoid it, allow it to happen and let people express their generosity and gratitude towards you.
It’s a gift to them.
So go easy on yourself, be generous to yourself and let people give you presents, be generous to them at the same time.
And so from everyone at the Generosity Guy, which is me…
