Beloved Flower Lover,
Most of us, especially women, have been taught that it’s more “blessed to give than to receive.” Close your eyes and pick a number from 1-100 to represent the percentage of the time that you are giving vs receiving. What was the number? Lets guess.
Maybe 90%, 80%, …. Now imagine that you are your own heart. What would happen to the heart muscle if it pumped your blood most of the time but received only 10-20% of it back into the upper chambers? You wouldn’t live very long. And the same is true of the lungs. How often do you truly take a good full deep breath– saturating your system with life-giving oxygen? Receiving is the completion of giving.
