We often measure generosity by what people give away.

Yet there is a very important aspect of generosity that is often overlooked.

How generous are we with ourselves?

Do we give ourselves the time we need to heal when we are sick? Do we give ourselves time in our daily lives to just be with ourselves and not do anything? Do we give ourselves a break, not because we “deserve” it, but just because we feel like it?

Next time we start thinking about generosity, perhaps we can start with “Have I been generous with myself today?”
