Give

Written by Lee Stoerzinger, CFP®

An excerpt from my book, On the Back Burner:

GIVE

Did you ever notice

How good it is to help another?

The happiness always runs deeper,

When giving than when receiving.

Could you imagine

Living your life in that state?

Why can’t you?

I firmly believe

That if you trust in yourself

But also focus wholeheartedly,

On the success of those around you,

You will never have to worry

About your own achievements.

They will take care of themselves.

They say you must leave the shore

To see the beauty of the harbor.

This way of life can seem

Against the nature of things at first.

But actually, there isn’t a better way.

Life runs in a constant circle.

You can either be a meaningful part

And reap the meaningful benefits,

Or stand alone, and always wonder

Why life is so hard.
