Just a Thought

If it’s Not About Me, Then Who

Whenever things just don’t seem to be going right, what do most people do? What do they think? Many think, why is this happening to me, or what could I have done better.  When we think of things, it’s mostly about ourselves and how things affect us. What do I need, what do I want?

Now, this I believe is normal, but why would we ever really want to be normal?  Or average, we want to be the best that we can be.  In my mind and after all my 72 years of life experiences, I believe that the only way we can truly excel in this life is to live it for someone other than ourselves.  We would do our best to find a cause that would benefit all life on the precious earth, not just our own.

We can live every day with purpose, that purpose is to make someone happy – to alleviate the suffering of others, to visit someone that needs to know that there is someone that cares about them –

When we can learn to do things to help others – it is then that we can find happiness- So in reality – it’s not about me, it’s about you.
