Last weekend I was telling Noah and his cousin that they needed to share. They were squabbling over the scooter because they both wanted to ride the one that they thought was fastest. In the end they resolved it but there were a few tears on the way!
It struck me that as grown ups we tend not to think about needing to share more. Equally we don’t usually get to the stage where we cry about it or squabble! Actually if we do learn to share as adults it can have amazing benefits and can lead to real happiness. It really it is another form of generosity.
My lovely friend and yoga teacher Anna was really keen when I asked her if she would like a go on my horse. She has never ridden but was really keen to have a go.
So last week I took her out on Dexter. It was just a gentle plod round the fields but it was no trouble to me. It was nice for Dexter to have a gentle ride and I enjoyed the walk and the endless chat we shared!
It made me feel good to share.
Then Anna offered to do some more Yoga with me on a one to one bases. We have arranged a swap day this weekend – AMAZING! I can’t wait. So often generosity is reflected back at you.
So think about what you could offer to other people. Doing so makes you more mindful because you no longer focus on your own needs and instead look to make other people happy.
One you try it you will see the positive impact on your relationships and as a result you will experience more happiness. Perfect!
