Blooming Boomers' Beacon, Issue #002 -- Season of Generosity
December 01, 2018

Practicing generosity - whether it's with our time, money or other resources - helps us in many ways.

When we focus on the needs of others, we are less concerned about our own needs. Being generous makes us feel better about ourselves, builds our confidence and clears the way for good things to come to us.

Use this season of giving to dig deeper and share more. Be generous!

Enjoy your holidays while you help those around you enjoy theirs.

Merry Christmas to all!
