On your way to do something good...

A dear friend asked me to help her out the other day. It entailed me traveling for a day and spending time working with her team on an issue that meant a lot to her. I won't go any deeper into what we did because that's not the purpose of this post.

What is the point is that I did shut down my life for her for that one day. I did my best to make sure it was all set up to be productive because I didn't want to regret it, but that morning at 6:45 AM as I was driving to the airport, I had a little concern over whether I'd regret this, I have to be honest. Turns out, I didn't at all.

Little did I know that I met a associate of hers who could help me on a particular issue that had been dogging me. And I also learned some fantastic insights that I passed onto another friend who is the middle of a personal challenge. And, I think we really made a lot of progress for my dear friend, too.

Sometimes, most of the time, even, we don't know how something is going to turn out. It's best to enjoy the ride and maybe, just maybe you will receive far more than you give.

  1. Thank you, Barry LaBov, for your comments on giving. Now that the Christmas season is over, I have to admit that it was more fun for me to give than to receive. I surely got more from it than the recipients. It sounds like you did as well. It just goes to show that we should always look to help.

  2. I wish more people saw the benefit of aiding others. I believe in a sort of cosmic karma that God or "a being bigger than myself" doles out based on the good you do for others. The good you put out into the world is the same good that is shown you in return. A great massage and a great post.
