It’s hard to be grumpy when you feel valued, loved, and respected.

A while back, I wrote Pancakes, Bacon, Eggs, and Networking, a story about a group I participated in as the owner of xSeedingly Satisfying LLC. The story touches on the value of giving and receiving—reciprocity.

Last week, a generous reader shared a link to a Radiolab podcast called Tit for Tat—also referencing the idea that what you put out is often what comes back to you.

And last night, I read this in Business Secrets of The Trappist Monks by August Turak:

Whatever we want from others, we must have the courage to offer first.

So the first question I need to ask myself when I’m feeling down is…

What are you putting out Gail?
Are you giving value, love, and respect?
Show vulnerability, it opens the door for magical math—me + you = something new.

Dear reader,
What do you think of that?
