“Giving our best each day with whatever we have and however we can is all based on the decisions we make,” this was said by one of my friends when I was confused on how things should be done. I had thirty different things to finish in a day and the time seemed shorter. Since then I have this habit of rewinding the 24 hours spent and analyzing if things could have been done in a better way.
Exercising this activity just before bed clears out most of our queries. The days which does not go as planned make us feel unproductive, but we need to get back with the positivity. We know that we have put our best effort and the next day would definitely be in our favor.
As we have always believed without reasoning that each happening is for good and there is a right time for all. There are such incidents when we look for answers irrespective. We should never forget to treat, pamper ourselves with the things that we love doing after hard work and the results attained. Loving oneself can be the best medicine and should be prioritized.
We can deny the fact if we want, but human beings have a selfless nature somewhere in them. At times it’s hidden and some express it. We can be involved in charity work, social events, and donations but there are a few who are totally selfless while carrying on such acts. It is a step towards helping others as we do our bit on the weekends.
It need not be something on a huge scale but we can definitely volunteer at the old age home, orphanage, spend time with differently challenged kids. We could also give away clothes that lay in our wardrobe most of the time. We could keep the old books in cartons and give them to those who cannot buy them. No one becomes poor by giving. Once we start with such drives, the best part is the feeling that we get which cannot be explained. It involves a satisfied mind, heart and the magical blessing that we get from strangers. The look in their eyes speaks more than thousand words. Being appreciated is the least concern that we look out for.
Nothing could be a better sacrifice than saving a life of the other person. The thought in itself sounds scary and the step towards organ donation is a big one. Since life is unpredictable there are hundreds of people who have donated organs at an early stage. Each one of us needs to give in a thought if we have not. Once registered, the hospitals should be informed by our near ones so that they can use our organs later. I guess more than donating organs, the thought of donating is a sacrifice and being humane!
By the end of it all, life is just about love that we shower on others, hope that we trust on, and faith that keeps us going.
