Be proactive and volunteer your time and services

“He who gives when he is asked has waited too long.”

– Seneca

Don’t wait to give of yourself. Be proactive and volunteer your time and services, go and help someone who is stuck, try not to wait until you are asked to do something before doing it.

This will be a win-win situation for you as well as the recipient. The person for whom you are giving or doing will feel better that you are doing so without him/her needing to ask. You will feel simply better for doing it.

A nice easy example is a little boy who cleans his room without his mom asking him. He gets to beĀ  proud for cleaning without being asked, and the Mom is proud that she did not need to prod her son into doing his chores.
The same hold true for adults. Step up and give before you are asked. See what happens.

Be Well.

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.”

– Epictetus

Do you constantly think of the things that you do not have? Are you always concentrating on something you want? If so, you will never feel satisfied – you will always be looking and hoping for “someday” to be here. “Someday I will have that boat.” Someday I will have that new car, that new job, etc.”
Take time out and think about all that you do have! Be grateful for what you are in control of. Rejoice for having whatever you have, great or small! You will find yourself much more happier this way!
