Thoughtful Thursday

Can you think of the last time you were thoughtful? When was the last time you helped a complete stranger and make their day even the slightest bit better? Helping others for the sake of just wanting to help is the best sincere feeling.  Not only are you helping them, you are helping yourself be a better person.  There is a rush of happiness and a warm fuzzy feeling you will get.  But the most important is knowing you were selfless. Last night, I told my mom to step aside, lay back, and watch some t.v. I told she wasn't allowed in the kitchen until I was done cooking.  As simple of a gesture that it was, my mom appreciated it.  And knowing I could help at least one person out was worth it.

I'm a firm believer in how our attitudes affect others.  Being a helping hand is contagious.   So just remember that next time your at the grocery parking lot, seeing someone lift a heavy object, help them out.  It truly is the small things in life that help change someone's mood drastically.

Stir up a conversation with somebody sitting alone.
Most importantly, give back with a smile, it is very contagious.
Strive to make someone else's day better by being thoughtful at least once a day.
Just a thought for the day!
ps, don't forget to =)
