“The most satisfying thing in life is to have been able to give a large part of one’s self to others.”
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
When life is over, and you have breathed your last breath on this earth, what will matter more, how much you managed to get, or how much you gave away? The things you collected or the lives you touched?
While this sounds morbid we all have to accept the fact that life will end one day for each of us. We don’t know when, where or how, yet we know an ending will come. Why should we wait until the end to start giving back? Why put off making a difference in the lives of others to some day in the future that might not come?
Hopefully all of us are many decades away from the end of our time here on this earth. Think how much of a difference we could each make in the world if we just gave a large part of ourselves away to others every single day.
What can you start doing today? How are you going to give of yourself to help someone else?
