Do something for somebody every day for which you don't get paid.

Thursday, November 01, 2007

This is a simpler version of what I've heard in 12-Step Meetings. In meetings it is suggested that we do something nice that no one else knows about. That's a bit tougher. Doing something for which we don't get paid, is a given. That's just being of service and it's accepted. It takes more time and effort to do something secretly -- and it's a bit more fun. Things like putting a flower on a co-worker's desk, picking up some trash around my parking space, hanging the wrinkles out of my boyfriend's shirt (yes, he doesn't notice, but he does look nicer all day long), or saying a silent prayer for the child having a tantrum in the mall -- they're all simple things. Keeping my mind focused on doing good keeps me from dwelling on problems. Maybe it will brighten someone else's day, too.
