Generosity is the New Black

So many movies and TV shows focus on bad boys, mean girls and people who step all over others to get what they want. But in reality, I believe those days should be over. The truth is, people want to be around those who are positive, happy and generous. Kindness, loyalty and thoughtfulness are attractive qualities, which shine in the midst of darkness.

It may seem like a contradiction, but giving is much more satisfying than receiving. Seeing the surprised and touched reaction on a person's face actually makes your day just as much as your act of kindness made theirs. I think we need to always remember that people all around us are fighting battles behind their mask of "everything is fine." We often have no idea what people are going through behind closed doors. And a simple smile, a word of encouragement, a little gift or a cup of coffee can really make a positive difference in a person's life.

Each day gives us the opportunity to lay down our own selfishness and put someone else first. I want to be a woman who reaches out my hand to those around me. Together, let's be women who make generosity fashionable.
