The month of November is known to be the month of giving thanks.
Everyday when I wake up, I remind myself how blessed I am for the year of 2013. I ran across this saying something along the lines of “Be thankful for what you have because there are other people in the world praying for what you have”. Once Mae brought up the idea that LBC is taking free balikbayan boxes to the Philippines. I knew I wanted to do something. There is just something that warms the soul about making a positive impact in someone’s life.
I remember in the “Thank you for Taking the Time to Interview me” letter addressed to my current nurse manager, I specifically addressed why I answered a question the way I did during the interview that raised some eyebrows. Ellen once said in an article that “I feel good, and I’m going to make somebody else feel good today” and I strongly believe it. I believe positivity, or the simple act of doing good, is contagious
I am not saying to do what I did, but I just hope this just resonates with some people an inspires people to help other people, whether small or big, it helps.
