Help up

Sometimes the best way to lift ourselves up is to lend a helping hand to others.  In this act we give service and we honour the gifts we have.  This can be as simple as calling a friend who is down and lending them an ear, or it can be more creative such as playing an instrument at an old folks home.  The act of giving is clustered with rewards that lift us up and remind us that there is good in the world, and we are part of it.

How have you helped someone recently?


  1. Love this and so true. We should never give only to receive back. The other day I helped a co-worker through a tough time. Jusr seeing her smile again was all I needed.

  2. I bet that smile felt amazing. And as someone who has needed to lean on a lot of shoulders lately, I can say that I bet you really made a difference to your co-worker.
