Hey, get your mind off yourself!

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

What better way to get your mind off yourself! Sometimes "being on a diet" can really seem to be all time consuming. That, if you work it right should lead to a lifestyle change, but usually being a "diet" it is just that. Your life is meal to meal. What will be next? When can I eat a snack? Who ate my last piece of ---? It is time to think of someone else. Get your mind off of food! Maybe there is someone who needs your help. some who hasn't heard from you in a while... Write and Email or send a card with a note or letter in it.( I hate getting just a card with out something personal said, sure the card is a thought, but why were you thinking about them? what made this card special to you?) Call, or visit if possible. We have a child in 0ur church who was just diagnosed with leukemia and will need a bone marrow transplant. What better way to get one's mine off of food than to think of a child and their young life. I give blood, I will also get myself tested for this. Perhaps I can help someone in need.
Kansas had a horrible tornado devastate a town. What can we do to help there?
