It’s Day 21 of my #ThirtyDaysOfThanks and today I am thankful for service to others.
I am thankful for all of the opportunities that I have to serve others. I work with a local group called Create A Change Now and today I was feeling grateful that I was able to help. We went to a local elementary school, where we keep a garden, and assist Chef Kas as he taught the children about healthy cooking and how fun it can be. I love it! The food is always delicious and the children always delightful as they learn how to change and better their world. Every day you have the opportunity to learn and experience something and someone new. Seize the opportunity. Learn and experience everything you can, and use it to change the world. Because many small people, in many small places, do many small things, that can alter the face of the world. So when Ghandi said that the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others, he was right. An essential part of a happy healthy life is being of service to others. Even though those huge opportunities for greatness in helping others rarely come, there are many small ones that surround us every day. I’m feeling truly blessed. How do you feel about service?
