Happiness from Helping
Thursday, October 03, 2013
Lately I have been putting extra effort into helping others. It doesn't take very much time or money to help others and brighten another persons day.
I am starting a project to help pregnant teenagers. It wont actually do anything to HELP them, but it will let them know that someone cares. I am making cute baby hats to donate to a local home for pregnant teens. I am going to put an encouraging note in each of the hats to let the teens know that they don't need to worry about every little thing, they just need love. Everything that is important as a parent comes from love. Hopefully this will make at least one person happy!
The neat thing is that I posted my idea on a local free items page asking if anyone had yarn that they weren't using and I have had quite a few responses! I am actually getting to start this project without putting any money into it! This is a time consuming task, but I have been looking for something to keep my hands busy so that I am less likely to snack for no reason!
I am really looking for ways to help other people. I think I will buy some umbrellas at the dollar store to hand to people on rainy days if they don't have one!
If someone is struggling, now I get excited because I have an opportunity to help! I like to see how many people I can help in one day. If everyone would just help even one person a week, this world would be a brighter place for everyone!
