I Am Doing Good Things
Mother Nature does good things every day. She provides beautiful sunrises and sunsets that make us feel blessed. It’s as if she paints the sky just for us to enjoy so that we feel inspired to create something beautiful with our own lives that’s uplifting to others.
“What is the essence of life? To serve others and to do good.” ~ Aristotle
Acknowledge all the good things you have done in the past few years. Even small things are worth remembering and will help you build up to the big ones. Reflecting on all the good things you’ve already done will inspire you to do even more.
Doing good things creates momentum for goodness to multiply in the world. If you get your worldview from the news media you may have lost your faith in humanity. Create a better version of reality by focusing on the good things people do for one another.
Do good things for yourself so that it becomes second nature to do good things for others. Master the art of self-care and you will have more energy to care for other people. The way you care for yourself provides a foundation for taking care of others.
Carve out time for yourself to write in a journal. Make a list of all the good things you’ve done so far this year, and then make another list of the good things you intend to do for the rest of the year. This written exercise works best if you’re feeling relaxed.
When you do something good for someone your brain releases endorphins that cause you to feel good. In other words, you get a natural high from doing good deeds. It’s an example of instant karma showing you that the good that goes around, comes around.
Doing good for others lowers stress and increases life-expectancy. You have less stress when you’re helping someone because you’ve taken the focus off of yourself and your problems. Acts of kindness add up to the kind of life that actually makes you want to live longer.
Being of service leads to happiness. Start your day by turning inward and asking: How may I serve? The universe loves this question and will generally answer you with an opportunity to be of service. Accept each opportunity with an open heart.
