Who would you bend over backwards for?
.
When I get out of the way--when I can put ME aside for just a little while, I can finally, truly, be of service.
.
Being of service feels like stepping back into flow. It can be found in simple moments and gestures with both strangers and loved ones. It's when I'm extra generous, kind and forgiving. It's when I forgive quickly, and write that card or make that call when it's not even necessary. So go that extra mile for someone today and really give them the fullness of your heart, your presence, your πŸ‘‚and your compassion. And It's hard to do that extra bit for someone else when you have all your own stuff going on. But when you do--when you step up and do better than your best, people really feel it. The other feels held, seen and just maybe, understood--in a moment when perhaps no one else sees them. Be a symbol of absolute kindness--show someone what the sweetest of humans can do/be. And you can do this even if you've never gone that extra mile before. Start now.
.
So today, if you will, go the extra mile, cross that ocean of fear and step into love for someone who needs you. We've all got one or two (or many more) folks in our lives who could really use a call/hug/talk/knowing gaze from us right now. Stop scrolling now and Just go do it.
