This is an excerpt from my journal, usually, I don’t share but I was at the park and my thoughts just started flowing. Do you journal?
I write this just to myself, please remember to always give back. In the hustle and bustle of life, it can get overlooked so easily. Then before you know it hours, days and months go by in the blink of an eye. Then something hits your heart and wakes you up and you are embarrassed to realize that you have not taken the time to give back besides the random pay for the car behind you at Starbucks. Don’t get me wrong this hopefully really makes their day and lets them know that someone cares. But it really doesn’t take much effort on your part. Sometimes it takes minimal effort to do the little things that make a huge differnece. For me its a connection to my past, connecting to the lost child that was hungry and scared with no where to go. Don’t ever forget her. Givning back is a sort of selfish thing to do, to be honest, because not only do we do it from the goodnesss of our heart but its extremely rewarding as well. What are you going to do today to honor that little girl that was you and all the people that took the time to help her?
I am planning to do something tomorrow to give back, I’ll do a post about it and I would love to hear about the last time you gave back! I have a blog with 100 suggestions of good deeds to do if you need some creative help. Have an amazing day!
