This quote is a beautiful truth of who we are. When we are focused on how we can be of service to others, we always find ourselves lifted as well. It’s how we are wired, put together, and that’s why it feels right.
My husband and I do this with each other all of the time. In fact, the only time we seem to have a disagreement is when we put ourselves first, instead of putting the other first. I am truly grateful to be in a relationship where each party genuinely chooses to think of the other first. It’s not as though we have to “try” or “think” about it, it just is, and that’s a gift.
My challenge to you is to experience “joy rising” each day of your life. A simple kindness of holding the door open for someone lifts you as well as the one you are serving. What will you do today that lifts others and in turn lifts you?
With much love,
