helping hand

I have had many careers throughout my life, yet all involved helping people, in one way or another. Thinking about another’s feelings, observing their behavior, and utilizing my intuition, I have learned a lot about myself and others.  In my life, I try to make sure that each day I am moving forward.

I look backward and do ruminate; anxieties and doubts can race through my mind. But, when I am helping someone else in a crisis, there is no delay.  For an empathetic person, the desire to aid another is stronger than our fear.  We recall many of our life experiences as a method for becoming a better, more resilient person, focused on learning and personal growth.  When we see someone else in pain, we reflect upon our own and step in to assist because we recall how we felt when it was our turn to face desperation and a paralyzing lack of confidence.

Sometimes feeling stronger for someone else shows them that they can move beyond the current situation, even if it is only for a day, or perhaps just an hour……. Knowing that someone cares about their well-being and believes that they can improve, gives them a reason to keep going…..

At the end of the day, that is the goal of a focused life. Regardless of the situation, or how others may treat us, we look for the lesson to be learned and accumulate valuable life experience.  I didn’t like how I was treated, and if I can prevent someone else from experiencing the same devaluing experience, I am going to step in.  I recall the pain and terror of helplessness and I don’t ever want anyone else to feel that horrible feeling.

There is so much good in people despite quite a few who have tried to convince me otherwise. But, I focused on trying to find the good – sifting, searching deeper than the superficial surface of a situation or individual.  That has made all the difference in the quality of my life and interactions.  Fake people are blindingly obvious to an empathetic person.  We will help, but even we have our limits.  Our empathy is unlimited; our patience is not.

For anyone who is striving to improve their circumstances, take a grasp on their health and willing to take those baby steps, I will not let them walk alone.

fortunate quote_dalai lama

keep your mind young_henry ford

Some of the best time I have spent has been between two words.  While one idea exists, another can enter and create a new string of thoughts.  For me, reading is a joy, for others, they prefer a more auditory experience.

Just speaking with another person can spark a brand new idea to pursue.

In whatever way you can learn, your willingness to participate in the process, means you can always find something novel wherever you are ~ right now.

Have a wonderful week!
