Giving from heart ❤

14th Feb — marked as a day of expression of love to your loved ones.

Giving and receiving of emotions and expressions one has for the loved one.

While reading a book, I came across these lines and a song…. What better day to express that I completely and heartily relate to it.

Quote “When we give from the heart, we do so out of the joy that springs forth whenever we willingly enrich another person’s life. This kind of giving benefits both the giver and the receiver. The receiver enjoys the gift without worrying about the consequences that accompany gifts given out of fear, guilt, shame, or desire for gain. The giver benefits from the enhanced self-esteem that results when we see our efforts contributing to someone’s well-being.” from NVC by Marshall Rosenberg.

I never feel more given to than when you take from me. When you understand the joy I feel giving to you. And you know my giving isn’t done to put you in my debt, but because I want to live the love I feel for you. To receive with grace may be the greatest giving. There’s no way I can separate the two. When you give to me, I give you my receiving. When you take from me, I feel so given to”.
