It’s my first time participating in Linda’s Stream of Consciousness prompts. Click the link above to learn all about it, and join in.
The prompt word is KEY.
I have a keychain which I began in 2011…it holds what I feel are keys to a “good life”. The first 4 keys are Faith, Gratitude, Humor, and Prayer. I can’t get very far without all of these!
There’s also a key for Generosity…it’s kind of like a skeleton key that fits many doors. To me it means, give and share at every opportunity that comes my way. I derive tremendous enjoyment from giving, almost a “high”…maybe it’s the feeling of connection, however briefly, with people.
My generosity can take the form of food, books, gifts of anything I no longer need but are still in great condition. It can also be time, listening, caring, encouragement, hope—again, the connection with others.
I was slow in learning most of this, but it’s never too late to make changes which benefit more than just me. This keychain has more value than a diamond bracelet.
