Just Give It Away

I cannot tell a lie.  I confess.  I won’t deny it.  I’m a fan of country music.  I like the stories each song tells.  For those of you who I just turned off, a couple of my favorite performers have nothing to do with country music, however.  Lady Gaga and Adele would probably agree that their genre is outside country music’s mainstream!  Yes, I’m a fan.  Did I redeem myself somewhat?

Anyway, let’s get back to my point about country music.  The title to this post is the same as a great hit of country music star, George Strait.  It’s a clever piece both in terms musical and lyrical content.  Now, in this song the whole theme of “just give it away” is related to a negative circumstance of broken love.  I know…it sounds like a country song!  Ya’ gotta love it!

However, the theme of the title for this post is all about positive outcomes.  I’m talking about the positive outcomes you can create for other people by giving your happiness away.  Yes, you can help them become happy by sharing your happiness.

Under typical circumstances, though, giving something away suggests some kind of loss.  In other words, if you give something away, you no longer have it.  But, that is not true when you give away your happiness.

Don’t take my word for it.  Read what Buddha says on the subject.  “Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.  Happiness never decreases from being shared.”

Just give it away!!
