A Whole Day Of Selfless Deeds Can Do You Good

Hi everyone! I’ve been so busy with my many other commitments that I’ve not had the time to post anything new. Honest apologies for that. This is not my regular kind of post but as always, I just wanna share with you.
So today, I barely did anything for myself. I mean, barely even found the time to eat. I can totally say most of what I did today was for everyone but me. At some point it was tiring, can admit that much, but I really did not feel as tired as I thought I would at the end of the day. If anything, I felt refreshed. Like I could think clearly and see all the bits of everything that was earlier blurry.
All I’m trying to say here is, sometimes, we need to take time out from our own issues and help someone else out. Do stuff for another person that does not benefit you directly in any way. A friend of mine once said, when you think your problems have become overwhelming, keep them aside and help someone else out of their own problem. He said this selfless act of solving another person’s problem will not only do your mind good but just might help you see how you can solve yours.
Granted, I’ve got issues to deal with, bills to pay, let’s just say stuff to keep my mind on me. But today, I left it all and focused on everyone but myself. It felt good. I have to warn you though, that it felt good at the end of the day. No, not when I was so hungry and wanted to abandon the task at hand. Or when I was feeling exhausted and wanted the comfort of my bed. Looking at the people that needed my help, I kept going and at the end of the day I felt good.
So this is more like a challenge for you. Pick a day. A whole day to do nothing beneficial to you directly, just for every other person. There’s always someone around you that needs your help. In whatever form you can give it. It could be just your company, or advice, or a true helping hand. It could be just a joke to help them note again that all hope is not lost. It could be something that’s really simple or something that completely takes you out of your way.
Go ahead and do it. It is rewarding. Not outwardly, but it sure is. I know because no act of kindness is ever wasted. Remember, it could be something really simple. So go on. Pick a day. Do it cheerfully. The way you give is more important than what you give.

  1. Totally agree with you. Though not usually easy to pull off, the joy you feel in your heart at the end of it is just awesome.

  2. I can relate to that, although sometimes selfless deeds are much more that the selfish ones and we need time off everything… 🙂

    Anyway, I am a new follower now (found you through Blogging 201). You are warmly invited to visit my blog too and hopefully follow back. 🙂
