What's in it for me? . . . .

If we ask ourself that question every time we give something, it ceases to be a gift. At that point it becomes an exchange, or a trade for some kind of reward. Mind you, our intentions are likely genuine, but we can unintentionally spoil the lovely experience of giving, by focusing on what we will eventually receive in return. Giving without expectation is the ultimate joy. I personally feel that whatever you give will come back to you many times over, often in completely unpredictable ways. Enjoy the wonderful surprises that present themselves to you when you have given with full intention of receiving nothing in return.

I promise, the ultimate rewards are the warm feelings that come from the act of giving!
