Change lives. give to others.
She's obviously Giving something away, and it appears to be COFFEE, which happens to be my blood type.
When I was younger I lived by the "You owe me" concept. Everyone owes me. The world owes me.
One day it occurred to me to actually do something special for someone else. Imagine! I started doing small things, picking up the house after someone, sending
a note of appreciation to a teacher, letting someone in my lane during congested traffic. As the years went on, my mind became "retrained" to focus on others' needs, and my own challenges seemed to greatly diminish. Each time I sat in front of my own challenge, the answer was to immediately focus on giving in some way, to someone else.
When our 13 year old dog passed away, our kids were devastated. A friend called and said, "You know there is only one CURE to that devastation...a new puppy!" As with our own lives, the only way to CURE a "You owe me" mentality, is to realize that we actually owe the world!
Our care and counseling pastor addressed us calling on all of us to make the world a better place. He said that even though he counsels people who are struggling daily, he would call on them too. Think outside of ourselves to make our part, of our world, a better place.
The key to moving beyond ourselves is to reach out to others, expecting
NOTHING in return. Sometimes we will be let down by family, friends, or co-workers. Sometimes we will even let ourselves down. Stand back up and give anyway. We will be amazed at the blessings we receive.
Not only will it change them, but us.
Change Lives.Give to Others.
