Help others, because no one has ever become poor by giving!
5 days ago I was so excited about my recovery progress so I needed to share it with my friends. Even if is so slow, where there are results, it means there is progress. And as long as you make some progress, that’s the only thing that counts.
I have sent photos and messages to some dear people, who are supporting me through all this time. I have sent photos from November (2015) January (2016) & from that day (June 2016). The message was something like: “Bending my knee hurts like hell, but it is worth it. I know that it would go so much faster and easier, especially to recover my muscles if I have a personal trainer, but at this moment I do everything on my own.. and I am sooooo happy because I have results!”
One of my friends asked how much does a personal trainer cost… I have said prices and he said, just like that: “Ooook, lets see.. I can’t send you a lot, but I want that someone helps you. First of all, my intention is to help you, because I know what you have been through so much things and you are still in it. Alone. I know it is not a lot, but it is from the heart. I am impressed how brave, persistent and dedicated you are. And please, have present that you have me in your life, even if I am not there with you. You are my hero! And you are a divine inspirational human being (me blushing here)! Anyway I would spend that money on some stupid things, at least this way I know that I will contribute to something sooooo important. If I don’t go to Western Union today, I will go tomorrow.”
And he did. Just like that. I.was.shocked.
For all this time, and all these years I had so many promises (without me asking for it in the first place), the list of people is so long I don’t even count it anymore.. and only few have helped. I am not that kind of person who asks for help or any other thing. I always look for solutions. So if someone speak up about his problem, and I can see that I can help, I immediately offer help. But we are all different. Therefore, most of those people said it.. obviously without real intention to help. And you know, intention speak so much about ourselves and who we are!
So what is your intention by making an offer that is not intended to be fulfilled?
It is not about money (or any other type of help), it is not about promises, it is about BEING A PERSON with INTEGRITY and KEEPING YOUR GIVEN WORD. It is about helping someone who hasn’t even asked for it, it is about to HAVE EMPATHY to feel the situation and to help. Help should be a normal thing, something that comes naturally. Not something shocking or making a big deal about it. Or bragging about it. It means that you didn’t help with pure heart, it means that you took an advantage of that situation and use it for self-promotion! That is humiliating. And again, speaks a lot about yourself.
Do you think before you make a promise to someone?
That’s it! Things are so simple in life. Don’t say something if you don’t mean it! Especially if you promise something. Because you might give hope to someone who desperately needs it. And you have let them waiting for you.. So not nice.
If you are in position, help others who need it. Don’t play with people’s emotions. Especially when it comes to health. Keep the promise. Do good deeds. If you can help, help! If you cant.. stay quiet!
And we can all help others. Whether it is your time, advice, smile, money or hug. It doesn’t matter what kind of help.. just help!
We can all help each other with good words and uplifting encouragement!
Be kind! Be a friend! Encourage someone today! Love! Give love! Keep your circle positive. Tomorrow, maybe, you are going to need the same exact thing. Be nice! Appreciate those good people in your life. Keep them in your life and take care of them. Appreciate life and all you have. And trust me you have more than you think you have. Be grateful. I always feel better if I help! My heart is full of love when I see that I have made someone’s day. Immediately I feel better. The same thing my friend did for me! God bless his soul!
We rise by lifting others!
