Many of these comments resonate. I feel so blessed today. Yesterday I was able to cheer up a friend who was feeling low and trapped by her circumstances. I thought there wasn’t much I could give, but there is. It doesn’t have to be material. Afterwards I felt so warm and happy inside I thought I might burst into song! what Michelle says is also true – it’s so much easier to give to those we love, and I suppose that’s because I am not detatched enough. It’s easy to contract in certain situations. I have a way to go there. Renate’s story has made me realise there is something much bigger I can do, she is an inspiration. Thank you for these insights and thank you for the changes they are already making.
