Get Off Your Ass and Do Something for Someone Else

If you are laid-off, jobless, etc., you need to take some of your free time to volunteer. It puts things in perspective like nothing else can.

You cannot possibly feel sorry for yourself if you get out and do something for someone else who’s got it worse than you. This morning, a friend and I delivered meals for Atlanta’s Project Open Hand. It was the best Valentine’s Day gift we could have given ourselves.

People were so happy to see us driving up their driveway or knocking on their door, and we all wished each other a very “Happy Valentine’s Day”. One sassy senior was all decked out in red waiting for her son and daughter-in-law to take her to dinner. She was jubilant, and it was downright infectious. Perspective is everything.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
