When life gets difficult and you feel things are just not going your way, take a moment and do something for someone you don't know. Open the door for a stranger, smile to someone who looks tired or sad, give blood, forgive someone...

A few years ago, someone gave me that advice and to be honest with you, I thought it "sounded" good, but I didn't see how it could help me with a big problem I was having to face.

And so one day I decided to purposely look for opportunities to help others. One of the things I did that day was help a total stranger find an office they were looking for. It doesn't sound like much, but the person was so relieved and thankful. Miraculously, it made me feel amazing and helped clear my mind. The more I help people, the better I feel. I know! How cliche!!!! BUT IT WORKS! Don't take my word for it ;)


  1. Well now, how can I benefit from all this giving? ;)

  2. Great advice. I'm a believer in paying it forward to the extent you're capable of.

    Happy New Year!
