Investments… November 21, 2010

Filed under: Inspiration — Weight Lost Hope Gained @ 4:18 PM

I was just going through my mail and stumbled across this from Spark People and wanted to share it here. It is so true when it comes to us and how we encourage others and in turn we grow ourselves.

“People usually talk of “spending” energy and time on others as if once it’s used, it’s gone. In reality, that effort is a powerful investment because you’ll get more in return. When a match lights a candle, the match’s flame doesn’t shrink–if anything, it grows. In the same way, you’ll be even more inspired and successful by building others up. The bonus is that they’ll also be better equipped to return the favor. Take action today to make someone’s life a little better. Come up with just one nice thing to do for each of the important people in your life, one little thing that can make all the difference. After all, what good does it do to improve your health or your life if you’re not going to do anything with it?”

Those of you that know me know that it is my Hearts desire to help others grow and succeed just as I have and still am. I am too inspired by you all and your stories to be tired and weary, you all are what keeps me going AND GROWing.

This blog is short, sweet, and to the point. Just wanted to share.

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
– Aesop, Greek author of fables
