With Service to Others
Carole gives is a challenging task for this week’s 10 on Tuesday:
10 Things You Can Do To Serve Others
I spent some time yesterday pondering this and wanted to address this not from the things I am currently doing, but rather from the idea that there are things I could/should be doing that I am not.
So, with self-improvement in mind, I present my list of 10 things I should be doing to serve others:
A kinder, gentler attitude that is
and less frustrated.
One that is not participating in gossipy conversation and
not playing the “one up” game – no one likes a laundry list of all the things you did.
Being more of a “Doer” and less of a “Sayer” and
actively listening to those around me and
to not take everything that is said so personally.
Realizing and accepting that my way is not the only way and
not expecting anything in return, ever.
This is a tough list and one that won’t be perfected overnight, but I am hoping that in this year of focusing on gratitude that I will find these things have become an integral part of me as the year draws to a close.
