In every single one of us is the ability to love, serve, and care for others. Simple things such as lending an ear or a hand to someone in need, sharing gratitude with others, or donating time to help people less fortunate or privileged are simple acts that don’t require any skill or money. A while back I was reading and ran across the 12th and final step of Alcoholics Anonymous; I found it to be extremely powerful. The last step in their program is to become a mentor. Why? Because in order to be completely cured of the disease; in order to become the best version of yourself, you have to help someone else become the best version of their self. When we genuinely love, serve, and care for others, we not only make them better, but in the process we make ourselves better, and ultimately the world a better place. We may not change the world in its entirety, but we each have the ability to change our own world, and positively impact the lives of those in it. Have an impactful day today!
