There are many ways to fill up our cup.

For some people, they fill up their cup by being with friends and family.

For others, it comes from being out in nature.

And for still others, it can come from a good book, a movie, a concert, a play, or some other performance.

Yes, for some people it comes from connection to others, and for other people it comes from solitude.

The important thing is not how we fill up our cup, but that we do it in the first place.

We spend so much time giving to others, at our job, our business, at parties and family gatherings, that we often forget to take the time to receive.

Receiving does not mean having to receive an actual physical gift. It can just be receiving what we need from life to feel full inside.

We cannot truly give from a cup that’s half empty, for what we give will not be enough for the other person and it will only drain us.

We can only give from a cup that is over-flowing, for then the act of giving uplifts us, and we are truly able to give what the other person really needs.

So how do you fill up your cup?
