Over the past year, I have done a great deal of self reflection and have come to find that I find myself most when I'm not paying attention to my needs, but rather helping others. Whether that person is a stranger, a friend, or a family member, everyone needs help at one point or another.
The smallest talk, smile, or gesture could be just what they needed. I know for me, at times I get very caught up in the tiny bubble of a world I live in and forget the giant world that lies beyond it. That giant world needs way more help than the 'problems' I face, but unless I get out there and put some work in, that's all just a nice thought.
"We make a living by what
we get, we make a life by
what we give." Winston Churchill
I have been beyond blessed and through helping others have realized not only just how fortunate I really am, but that I can use that to spread love and peace. I would like go encourage everyone to go out and lend a hand, not just money, and help someone. It can be anyone, we are all in need of a little support.
I believe small acts of kindness and selflessness should be shared, not to brag but to inspire, so I also encourage you to post below or to the outlet of your choice and see if we can't spread a little more love! I want to really live and I can't do it alone and neither can you! Every chance to help is another chance to learn, to grow, and to find yourself.
