So often, during job search, I see and hear of people in isolation. Isolation that often leads to depression or immobility.
When money is tight and things seem bleak, don’t turn inward. Push yourself and practice giving.
It doesn’t take a lot. In fact, it may not cost you anything accept your time. Time is a precious commodity, especially this time of year which makes an even bigger impact.
I was touched by this video yesterday. It said so much and struck a chord with me. At 10 minutes, it may be longer than it needs to be, but watch it and see what you think.
It may be painful or too close for comfort for some but that is exactly why I am sharing it. No matter how much you have or don’t have, you can always help others. Many of you do already, I know. But there are still many who don’t. It isn’t the quantity we give but the quality of the intent with which we give.
There are people richer and poorer than me. But their personal wealth is not the measure I use. It is their generosity, kindness, selfless giving, concern for others, and awareness of it all that leaves an impact.
No matter how much or how little you think you have to give, you can always, always help others!
This week how can you give selflessly? What small act of kindness can you perform that will make an impact?
