Like the quotation by Albert Schweitzer.
Thank you. I would like to be smart enough that some day people would quote me…but I don’t think, “Hey Honey we need more toilet paper in the bathroom!” is going to get me there…hahaha.
Yes, even if your gesture is ignored, or someone forgets to thank you…just do it! You soften your heart. Keep softening the heart.
It is a wonderful habit to cultivate.
One of my greatest dreams remains in tact as I continue to work toward being an anonymous Philanthropist. A very rich, generous, philanthropist.
I have begun this trek, leaving extra change in soft drink machines, money in the break room, in merchandise packaging, …..I really do have a good time. Paying someone’s bill at a restaurant….I’m having a lot of fun.
I was recently put in a position of controversy with someone I did not care for, very much. Putting aside perceptions from the past, the facts were as they were, and I defended this person. That felt good, and I discovered much more about this person. Looking beyond my egotistical perceptions, we have become friends.
Compassion feels good. It’s good nourishment for the soul, and I am very much encouraged! Enjoy!
Dave, want a wonderful path you are on…and an even better story of grace, compassion, and, dare I say, redemption (?). Thanks for sharing…when we all share bits and pieces of our lives, it always makes me feel more connected.
