Live a life of selfless service.

 

Simplicity is prerequisite for reliability.

Edsger Dijkstra

I give completely from my heart. I fill my own cup up first. Then, from the overflow, I can give congruently.

I like to operate my vehicle with a full tank of gas. I apply this metaphor to my life as well. When I have given myself all the love and support that I need, that is when I can give the best service.

I monitor my energy very carefully. I recognize when my tank is getting low, and I replenish myself accordingly.

Once I have completely replenished myself, I can see where my service is most needed. I follow my hearts’ guidance. My heart knows what to do. My heart knows who needs my help.

I love to listen to my hearts’ guidance. The small voice within prompts me to what acts of service would be most beneficial.

Sometimes, my heart tells me that all that is required is a listening ear. Sometimes, it is a hug. Even something as small as a smile can do wonders for a persons’ soul.

I love to give small surprise gifts to unsuspecting recipients. Whether it is a home-grown gift from my garden, a homemade craft, or a simple card, the joy is in seeing their face light up.

Today, I realize that service comes in many forms. When I fill my own cup up to overflowing and give from my surplus of heartfelt love, my heart is filled once again.
