You give, when you smile. You give, when you offer your friend a taste of your meal. You give, when you tell your friend that they’re awesome, when you listen to someone’s troubles, when you water your plants, when you create space for yourself to sit still for a moment. You give, when you take the time to reply to a worried poster in your online community, when you tell someone that you hear them – and that you understand. You give, when you laugh at someone’s joke, and when you share a glance of solidarity when stuck in traffic, or when you nod at a fellow bike-rider at the lights. You, in being here, a part of it all, you are giving.
You are lovely, you are love.
You are a gift.
