Good reminder

Sunday, July 20, 2014

I will strive to remember this. I get to create my own life the way I want it. I get to decide on what I will do with the time that I have been given on this earth. I will try to remember that it is a gift I have been given and treat it as such. My body is a gift that I have been given stewardship over during this lifetime. I will take steps to take care of it.

I was reading "The Magic of Thinking Big" this evening. Dr. Schwartz talked about giving good service first, then all of the good things that we want to have happen in our lives will follow.

Zig Ziglar stated it as, "Help enough people get what they want and you can't help but get what you want."

So, I guess the question that I need to ask myself is, "How can I serve?" If I were more focused on helping to meet the needs of others I would never have the opportunity to feel self conscious or concerned about what others think about me. It's all about helping the other person feel good about themselves.

To extrapolate this, I guess if I want to be fit and healthy, I need to help others become fit and healthy. In the process of learning to help others, I will also learn to help myself.

I know that I have rambled on tonight.

Do you have any thoughts on this?

    Yes! This whole journey (or any journey in this lifetime for that matter) is all about learning. When we earn, we get so much more of a "bang for our learning buck" if we pass it on! Plus we're learning from others too in the process. Win/win.

    Great blog.

    I do think that I am one of those people for whom helping others is a reward similar in some ways to an endorphin rush, which is not a bad thing. If I make this one of my goals along with my fitness and my nutritious eating, I seem to do better.

    Right now I am working on a charity quilt - I got inspired talking to BECCAZEN when we met in Springfield.

    Sounds like a great idea. Help others and you're helping yourself. Glenn
