The WISDOM of Mark Twain ~ 7 Life Lessons to Live By; #3
It’s amazing that in North America, the most abundant place in the world, we can feel anything less than happy & grateful for our lives. We live in the free-est, most abundant continent in the world, but alas we are human, and so when we are feeling down, Mark Twain gives this solid advice:
“The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.”
When we feel down or depressed it is because we are focused on ourselves and our problems.
One of the best ways to lift your spirits is to broaden your perspective and experience by helping others.
Some great ways to get involved in helping those in need are places like animal shelters, elderly homes, homeless shelters, VA hospitals etc…
There is no better substitute to remind you to be grateful for your life than to spend time with those less fortunate. You get so much more from it than cheering yourself up, you make a difference. When we have a positive impact on this world we don’t just feel happy, we experience something deeper and more meaningful…and that is fulfillment.
IN-JOY your day! See you next week with the next installment of Life Lessons to Live By from Mark Twain!
