I was thinking further on my post from yesterday about Acts of Service.
There are so many little things we can do to show people that we care, without expecting anything in return.
Here are some of my favourites…
- Give money (that you can spare) to someone who needs it and then pretend you never had it.
- Listen to someone fully and openly – without jumping in with your own story, or the temptation to offer a solution. Give them the respect of your full attention, and show them that what they have to say is important to you.
- Don’t ask someone if you they need help. Follow your intuition, and just do what you feel in your heart would be the right thing for them in that situation.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
