20121204-053451.jpgWhen thoughts arise and ideas emerge that spark generosity, it’s easy to shy them away. I can’t do that, no its not possible, I don’t have the resources.

I think we should explore generous thoughts more. Find creative and innovative solutions to be generous. Christmas is a time, when we don’t necessarily feel like being generous. I find myself trying to find ways towards shortcuts and quick and easy solutions.

As we rush past the elderly in the shopping centre, as we tap our feet at the pregnant lady slowing us down in the aisle at the shops, as we have another conversation with our child about their behavior, lets choose generosity this Christmas.

Generous thoughts are not kept only for money and gifts.

Generosity is birthed in our thoughts, it is cultivated in our speech and is modeled by our actions.

Never suppress a generous thought.

What a great quote.
