So here goes, the final day. I’m obviously not very good at following rules because in my last post I failed to nominate three others and it hasn’t been consecutive at all! But rules are meant to be broken, am I right?!
My final quote for this challenge is this:
Your life is not about you
-Neale Donald Walsch
Pretty strange right? Of course it’s about me. My entire experience is through me, for me, at me, how on earth is it not about me.
Nah, it’s not mate. I don’t think so anyway.
I’ve been trying really hard lately to get into the habit of waking up and instead of thinking what I can do for myself, I ask ‘what can I do for someone else today?’
Sometimes it’s really hard and it doesn’t come naturally.
Sometimes it’s just a compliment. Sometimes it’s something more specific like helping someone with their essay for uni. Sometimes it’s just doing your housemate’s dishes that they haven’t had time to do. But I am sure, small acts of kindness make this world go around.
As I they day goes on and my ego rears it’s head every so often, I simply remind myself- my life is not about me. And all of a sudden I’m free again.
My next nomination for this quote challenge is you. What significant sayings or mantras make a difference to the way you live your life? Let me know in the comments.
