This indeed is the question that I would like to answer. I believe that it is important to put people first and to actively listen to them. How else can I? I think that I need to live outside myself more. I get so concerned about my well being that I forget to assure that others are feeling the love that they deserve. I really want to make sure that I am working to uplift others when I can.
It’s a wonderful tingling as well as a warmth within my heart.
What a wonderful question. As I was writing in my gratitude journal this morning, I realized that everything that I am blessed with is a great tool, I am blessed with food, shelter and bountiful love. Because of this, I am able to grow and put my best foot forward to be there for others. Being in this state, I believe that I necessary that I seek out the opportunities to help and to be with others.
Since I have begun to listen to understand rather than to just listen, I feel that I am connecting with people much more and focusing on myself less.
Hmm. This is an excellent question. I feel that this question could extend to reaching out to my family more and inviting them to be with me. Though some of us stay better connected than others, I think I could do better on this. I would love to do better on this.
I think in order to ease the distress of others it is important that I be with people when I am with them. Truly with them, empathetically, and listening closely to the things they say. I am looking forward to volunteering in hospice care so that i may begin a journey of committing myself to better upholding this value.
Having trouble finding a job right now has been hard because I don’t feel valuable. It makes me realize though, that self-worth is beyond what we do. Self-worth just is, and we do not need to earn it, we already have it.
I love this question. I think it is interesting to try to quantify, because I think that in order to create a more equitable peaceful world requires I do work on myself first. I must know how to treat myself with love and peace so that in making contact with others, i am able to be the best person that I can be. Furthermore, I think it does require an effort of asking yourself “What can I do for someone today?”
I can appreciate what I have. Notice that I have a healthy body and mind and with it I can go anywhere, try anything and be anything. I can notice that I have unlimited food and which I am nourished by. I can notice I am surrounded by love and support from my friends and family. I can take time to appreciate how fortunate I am to be able to have a chance to get an education, and to be in a space that I have an opportunity to give to others.
I have not played in a long time. I think the last time I played was when I was dancing with a friend. It was so so much fun, and It could of gone on forever. I need find how I can play more.
Today I can look beyond what I normally tell myself, and try to look outside what i normally see.
Overthinking and feeling bad for myself.
Ah, I didn’t think of donating blood or plasma! I am going to look into this.
