One Random Act of Kindness!

offering helping hand

Offer your helping hand, not your judgment!

You are driving your car late at night and you see somebody stranded, looking completely dejected, and begging for a lift. You thought of stopping to help but instead you just kept driving on deciding you would rather not because of all the negative news flying around or what people would say?  Or perhaps a total stranger you are meeting for the first time needs a place to stay for the night or a place to live for a while; you have the means to help, could be a room in your apartment but you are not willing to help unless you get something in return for your help or not willing to help at all? Now let’s turn the table around. Have you ever been completely stranded somewhere with no money, no one to call, nowhere to stay and you are trying to get a lift to the safest place, to spend the night but nobody is stopping to help? How does it feel? I bet it doesn’t feel good! But there is a saying that goes ‘with one random act of kindness, we can change the world’Altruism, a selfless act!

helping others

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are – Theodore Roosevelt

Altruism is the principle or practice of concern for the welfare of others. It is doing things purely out of a desire to help and not out of duty, obligation, guilt, and loyalty or expecting something in return. ‘Altruism’ or ‘Selflessness’ is the opposite of selfishness. It doesn’t necessarily mean you need to have enough to share with another neither does it necessarily mean your helping hand should be limited only to people of the same societal class with you. It could mean you need to sacrifice the little or the only piece you have for another who clearly needs it at that point in time more than you do.

Altruism is usually considered a traditional and compulsory virtue that one must have in some cultures. It also forms the core beliefs of some religions. Altruism is putting others before you but the concept of “others” varies widely among cultures and religion. It could mean everybody or only people of the same tribe or only people of the same town or even only people of the same religion as you. Nevertheless, others mean others.

 

altruism

Help people whenever you can, don’t expect anything in return!

 

There are two types of altruism; the psychological altruism and the biological altruism. Psychological altruism means acting out of concern for the well-being of others, without regard to your own self-interest. Biological altruism refers to behavior that helps the survival of specie without benefiting the particular individual who is being altruistic.

Being altruistic could be good, nice and easy but sometimes, it could involve risking your own life to save another person. The old people need to teach the young to cultivate the habit of selflessness to everyone regardless of their tribe, ethnicity, race and religion.  It is important because the young don’t see it as needful or as a virtue.

Be altruistic. Every once in a while, place other people before yourself, help others, donate things to orphanages, help the poor and homeless without expecting anything in return.

altruism--U before I

It is more rewarding than you think!

When you are helping others, you are helping yourself!

The Heart of Christmas

christmas_nights-1920x1200“He who has no Christmas in his heart will never find Christmas under a tree” -Charlotte Carpenter

The 25th day of the month of December has been marked as a day in which Christians all over the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Although the celebration has its origin from Christianity, it is a season that is generally celebrated by all. This is because it is usually celebrated at a season that also marks the end of the year. Christmas is not just about the weather or the many activities that accompanies it. What makes Christmas special is what we make of it.

“It’s Christmas in the HEART that puts Christmas in the AIR”- W.T Ellis

These days, the main purpose of Christmas has been ignored by so many. People get easily carried away by the outings, shopping, and other activities that come with the season and neglect what the season actually stands for.

What is the heart of Christmas?

It is the Heart of LOVE

The Christmas season is a time to show love to all those around you. You might say…

Must I wait till Christmas to show love?” The answer is NO!

The deepest desire of every individual is to be loved and love is a virtue which every individual should carry around on a daily basis. In this Christmas season, love should be seen everywhere around you. Show love to everyone and everything around you to the point that even the blind will see the love that your presence radiates.

It is the Heart of SACRIFICEslide28

The heart of Christmas is the heart of sacrifice. It is the heart that looks out for the next person even when it is not convenient. As you celebrate this Christmas, endeavor to give to someone. You can give your time, money, gifts, show kindness or you can devise other creative ways to express love to others.

 

It is the Heart of GRATITUDE

Gratitude-Season-300x199

Christmas should be a time when we show gratitude to God for the things we have and everything we have achieved over the year. It is not a time to count losses or worry about what we don’t have. Not expressing gratitude this season would be out of place as there is a lot to be thankful for. If you can’t think of anything to be thankful for, then be grateful that you are alive.

Do not forget!

A grateful heart is a happy heart

This is the heart of Christmas!
