On giving back: Loving beautifully

If you have ever felt the weight of poverty or huge debt, you know that it can be crushing. It is not that you have to budget carefully or watch how you spend your money. Everyone has to balance their checkbooks. It’s that you feel trapped, stifled. You are painfully aware that at any moment, it all might come crushing down. Eviction, late fees, food stamps can be the cause of more than just nightmares.

Many filmmakers, professors-to-be, musicians, sports players and authors know this feeling. Perhaps to get that masters degree brought you to the brink, or the effort to finish your first novel sent you into poverty. Or perhaps you just spent and spent and now you are seriously mending your ways.

But what if you are an artist who has now seen success? What if you have ever gotten out of debt or poverty? What if you have finally broken out of a cycle of bad debt and credit and are finally balancing your checkbook in the black, not the red? Do you have the desire to help others? Do you want to go back to your old neighborhood, the old stomping grounds, and help people who need your help? Do you want to help one of your friends get out of a bad spot? Or do you want to forget about where you’ve come from  and what you’ve been through? Do you just want to move on?

Sometimes it’s not enough to create great art or teach incredible classes or to produce phenomenal films or win all of the games. You have to do more. You get to do more. You cannot escape the fact that people still need homes and three square meals—not only a good book to read.

And so, maybe it is time to look around for ways to give back. You’ve been blessed by working your ass off, and now you can bless. Harness to your creativity a passion for charity. Create and give. Produce and care. This is one of the ways to  love beautifully.
