“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
“T’is better to give than to receive” they say and as cliché as it sounds, I have personally found that there’s nothing quite as rewarding than being able to be of service to those who are in need.
It is important to keep in mind that “No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted”. Whether it is done through doing random acts of kindness to strangers or expressing deliberate acts of love and compassion to our loved ones, the joy we receive from knowing that have made a positive impact on someone’s life is simply priceless.
