“Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men.”
I have to confess, that despite the sunshine, I had a little dark cloud cross my path the other day.
The weather was spectacular and my heart full of gratitude and anticipation for something I have been working on for quite sometime. Then an unexpected text, sent my mood in a totally different direction.
In my somewhat emotional state, I began looking for quotes of inspiration and landed on an article about Gandhi….a sign or just luck, who knows?
As I read about this amazing man and his message of service, I realized that somehow I was calming down.
It was reading this that brought me back to what matters:
“And when you see the good in people it becomes easier to motivate yourself to be of service to them.
By being of service to other people, by giving them value you not only make their lives better.
Over time you tend to get what you give.
And the people you help may feel more inclined to help other people.
And so you, together, create an upward spiral of positive change that grows and becomes stronger.”
Sometimes, life is funny the way it throws us curves. If we stay focused on our course, we can learn to roll with the curves and know that we always have the power to make others lives better….. and our own.
