One reason is that–over the years–I have received many unexpected blessings–especially during times of great need. Another is a knowing that one or more of these offerings can provide a perfect first step forward on your journey toward courageous wellbeing–often before you are in a position to make a financial commitment to one of my paid offerings.
I also understand that generosity is a two-way street. One of the many lessons I have learned during my life is what Lisa Firestone describes as the generosity of acceptance. Or, as Marguerite Theophil put it,
Being truly generous is as much about being open to receiving graciously from others. Allowing the other to ‘give’ to us whether it be a compliment, an act of kindness, emotional support or even material help in times of need is, interestingly, as much of an act of kindness as extending ourselves to give to others.
So, whether you choose to make a referral, offer a testimonial or simply words of support [see form, below] or give a monetary offering, I will gratefully (and graciously!) receive it.
