Today’s motivational nudge: Give back by connecting to what’s meaningful to you

Photo by Lukas on

How we choose to give back is so different and unique for each of us.

It doesn’t need to be a big elaborate act although it can be. We can give back in so many small ways as well.

Having authentic and supportive interactions with others — giving a stranger that unexpected smile of encouragement — remembering a birthday — showing up for someone exactly when they need you and being there with a genuine supportive spirit — all of the little things add up and make that meaningful difference.

Having that element of contribution incorporated into each of our days can also provide a feeling of abundance in our own lives.

If we choose to give back even on not-so-great days when we’re not feeling our best, we can remind ourselves of the inherent ability we have to contribute in both little and bigger ways no matter what our circumstances are.


One good way to give back is to connect with what strikes a chord within and is most meaningful to you personally.

If you love art, consider volunteering to teach art in communities where art classes are less accessible or offer up your creations in a blog.

If you have always connected with nature and the environment, consider volunteering with an organization that focuses on nature conservation. Think of what sparks joy for you and how you can also bring joy to others by connecting to that particular interest.

Today’s motivational nudge is: Do one thing this week that meaningful to you and has a positive impact in a little or big way on others around you as well.

  1. I like the featured image you used for this post (the doggos), which reminded me that I could always give, even when I think I have nothing to give. Such as staying out in the park longer than usual so that my dog could play more, or giving her a massage, or spoiling her with a special treat. Anyway, thanks for this post!

  2. Hi, APT, I have recently connected with a group of women to meet new friends & try new activities. This week, I helped 1 of them learn how to climb, and went to dinner & our downtown’s monthly Artwalk with another. It’s a win-win! Very sweet post! 🌞
