Can it be so simple as giving of oneself? Not talking, not thinking, but doing. Being of service requires activity. I�m concerned any activity outside of preparation and planning is a waste of energy. Thoughts?


Love this - one of my soap box items is the amount of time we love talking about something but not getting around to acting upon on what we love talking about...less talk and more action is best in my opinion. Grasp the moment you are in and see what you can do in that moment to serve someone. Open a door - let the elderly person in line go in front of you - smile at the cashier, ask them how their day is, and really mean it. Tip well. Actively seek service opportunities just by being observant to the needs of the folks around you...inconvenient at times, yes, but service often is - that is what makes it worthwhile. Being grateful for what we have and thinking beyond ourselves in response...
