“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” – Charles Dickens

So I ran across this quote today and what perfect timing! Not that I was feeling useless but it made me feel good to know that simple things that can help others get through rough times can make even the person who has nothing “material” to offer can help another in so many ways.

From that person who feels so down on themselves because they don’t have that “special someone” to get flowers from on Valentine’s Day or a mother (or father) who is crying because she feels like she is not doing the perfect thing at the perfect time…we can all make a difference with a few kind words, a pat on the back or some simple advice.

We can also help the elderly neighbor take the trash can to the side of the road, open the door for someone who either needs help or doesn’t. That simple, yet kind gesture can, and just may, make all the difference in the world to another person. Likewise, doing these acts can make us feel good and help us make it through a tough day or week knowing that we helped someone.
Lifting up another person helps them, and in turn, helps us so it’s definitely a win-win situation.

I’ve experienced both ends of the spectrum recently and feel great. We all deserve to feel great and have the ability to do so whenever we make the choice!
