What is Given

Life, we tend to think, is given.

Given in the sense of unchanging and, mostly, unchangeable.

But when we reframe our conditions as given to us, as a gift, everything changes.

It’s not a punishment. It’s not even a constraint.

It’s an opportunity, and, being received, is given to be shared.

If you wait until you have “enough” to start giving, you’ll wait forever.

Start giving, and you’ll soon discover the abundance you already have.
