Giving Growth

Self-Image

Enjoy!.

“When we give of our self for others, we grow in ways that cannot be quantified tangibly. It’s amazing, however, how much our self-worth, self-image, self-confidence, and self-respect seem to expand at just about the same time.” —Paul Mark Sutherland

What It’s All About

What-Its-All-About

“A meaningful life is not about being rich, or popular, or accomplished, or high-ranking. There is nothing wrong with any of these, but that’s not what it’s about.
It’s about being true to, and for, our self  while also being gentle and humble and forgiving and thankful, and being willing to extend our self to touch and lift in the lives of others.
A meaningful life brings intrinsic contentment, satisfaction, and happiness. Unfortunately, it cannot be purchased, inherited, or bestowed. If we want one, we must create it our self. 
It won’t be easy, but the good news is that regardless of our current station, if we start today, we still have enough time to finish with our very own meaningful life.” 
—Paul Mark Sutherland
