The World Tree

Thought of the Day

Tabetha Berry

It is instinctual from a very young age to help others.  To comfort someone crying, even if we don’t know them, to offer a peppy word to boost the moral of someone, give a simple smile to a passer by lost in deep thought.  We know we should always do for others, but do you realize you should be doing this for you too? When going out of your way to make someone feel better, try to remember, you’re “someone” too.  Making a comfort food, offering yourself a smile in the mirror, thinking a positive thought, playing some upbeat music, all these things are things we’d do for our fellow man.  So why not for ourselves? Is it selfish? Not at all!! If we cannot help ourselves, we rarely are any good at helping anyone else.
