Perform One Selfless Act Every Day

“Even the smallest act of caring for another person is like a drop of water — it will make ripples throughout the entire pond…” ~Jessy and Bryan Matteo

It is so easy to get bogged down in the details of life. Appointments, minutiae, and to-do lists can all serve to keep us focused on ourselves rather than on the big picture. But one simple change can have a tremendous effect on that. Take yourself out of your own life and perform one selfless act. It can be for someone else or for what you view as the greater good. You can do something nice for a neighbor or you can do something completely anonymously.

Think about the blessings in your life and figure out a way to pay it forward. Think of kindnesses you’ve received and try to do something similar for someone else. Watch the people around you carefully to figure out what would really make a difference in their lives.
The good thing about being selfless? Not only do you get to positively impact the life of someone else, but you’ll get a little boost out of it yourself. It’s impossible to make someone else happy without a little bit of that rubbing off on you.

So buy coffee for the person in line behind you, offer to babysit for the young family on your street, make a micro-donation to someone in need. The possibilities are endless.
