GIVING SOMETHING BACK
Some think of giving something
back in life, a bit like leaving a tip.
It’s our way of recognising
what we have received.
But this suggests
the end of the meal,
rather than the launchpad
of something special.
You see giving back is
our opportunity to build, to go again,
to go different, and to do more
of what still needs to be done.
It’s our opportunity to harvest
what we’ve learned, to re-package
who we are, and to change
right now, all that matters for us.
Giving back is the
hidden power of kindness,
ready to explode through us,
in ways we cannot imagine.
So, do not wait until the
end of the meal to say 'thank you'.
Go now, go again, go different
and give back all you can.
