You make a living by what you get.
You make a life by what you give.
Instead of making a list of New Year’s resolutions this year, I thought I’d meditate on growth-producing concepts—a different one each month. January was forgiveness, February was thriving, March was gratitude. Generosity has come to my mind so often recently that I thought it would be a good topic for April.
The thought struck me when I read the quote above that “You make a life…” is a phrase that makes a point in addition to generosity. How many people make their lives pro-actively, and how many people allow their life to be made for them passively? I’ve been reading life is a verb by Patti Digh. It is all about living intentionally. This is exercise for my brain, kind of like my trips to Curves.
What do you think of the book? I have been reading her blog and am intrigued. We usually like the same type of books so I ordered it from the library. Let me know what you think.

Great colors, cute design, nice drawing and a wonderful new title background! Must be so rewarding to create something for someone else that can last a lifetime.
