Today I give with consideration. I called my friend up because I knew she was struggling with a class that we took together. I suggested that we go to lunch so we can work on the homework together. I did my best to explain everything so that she could grasp the concepts and finish the homework on her own. Then when I was finished, I cleaned up her lunch for her so she could continue working on the homework and not be disrupted from her train of thought.
I still don't quite understand the receiving end of the gift giving process. Maybe after a few days it will become more clear? I definitely felt positive energy from being more aware of the gifts that I'm giving and the positive effect that I can have on other people.
