While I was eating lunch yesterday, I had some deep thoughts.
|Cherries, grapes, strawberries, and a peach|
|Peanut Butter and Honey on the best bread|
I always say that I want to be more service oriented. I want to do nice things for people. I want to think more about others and less about myself. I want to do things for people that would make me smile if they were done to me. I want to make others feel special, loved, important. I want to ease someone's burden.
But no matter what, I always claim that I'm too busy to do this.
"I'll do it tomorrow. I've got a bunch going on today."
"I'll start next week. This is a CRAZY week."
"I can't possibly fit another thing in now. I'll get around to it."
But how long are the excuses going to last?
I'm ALWAYS going to be busy. Life isn't going to get any simpler. There will always be other things to do.
So why wait?
Why not start NOW?
After all, isn't the whole point of service to give of yourself--even though it may be hard to do?
I think I missed that.
So I'm starting NOW.
Who's with me?
