Am I giving?

What are we watching this week?

This is a video from Teal Swan, American writer and public speaker, titled ‘Giving and How to Give in Relationships’. Teal compares the giving and receiving in life to the inhale and exhale of breath. She underscores the importance and necessity of both giving and receiving in sustaining satisfactory and enduring relationships.

At I Am Here, we enjoy Teal’s challenge to us, to figure out the why, what and how, when it comes to giving, which she claims is a game changer. What do you think?

What are we reading this week?

This is an article written by Andrew Sobel titled ‘The Power of Authentic Generosity to Strengthen Relationships’. The piece highlights the centrality of generosity to positive connection. ‘If trust is the universal lubricant of relationships, generosity is the fuel.’

We at I Am Here agree that giving enhances every connection, whether that be a personal, social or professional relationship. We acknowledge too that giving is an important part of what makes us human. It is a way to show our love, our respect and our appreciation for others, which makes everyone’s world a better place in which to live.
