Thought For The Day

One of the greatest changes that came out of my life from 12 Step recovery was the desire to help another without any other motivation but the desire to help another…today’s quotes are ones that I feel help to further explain this…

“I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I can’t change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit.” (Charles De Lint)

“The next time you want to withhold your help, or your love, or your support for another for whatever the reason, ask yourself a simple question: do the reasons you want to withhold it reflect more on them or on you? And which reasons do you want defining you forevermore?” (Dan Pearce)

 “Be nice to people… maybe it’ll be unappreciated, unreciprocated, or ignored, but spread the love anyway. We rise by lifting others.”  (Germany Kent)

“Don’t value your self-worth by others or external things but by appreciating who you are within. And if you must measure your success do it not by what you have gained personally but what you have contributed to a wider benefit.”  (Rasheed Ogunlaru)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
