As a nurse and mother, I have it in me to serve others and nothing brings me more joy than dedicating myself to make others achieve their happiness. Last week during a nursing convention in Indianapolis, I met some great nurses and one of them invite me to help her with her chapter induction ceremony, of course, I said yes.
Serving others without measure can fulfill you in unimaginable ways. You may think that your action is minimal, but never underestimate that our small deed can change someone’s life or perspectives for the best.
Often, we think that we are too busy to reach out to someone and help, or we simply leave that task to others. We tend to forget that our main purpose in life is to give and serve.
Well, when I offered my help last week, I was not expecting it to be bitterly cold outside. After living in Jersey for almost two decades, facing the cold weather still remains challenging. All I want to do is staying home with a hot cup of tea and a book.
Overcoming any type of challenges makes life more meaningful. Seeing my friend, and being there to help her brought warmth to my heart.
When you feel down or helpless, simply remember that we rise by lifting others; find someone to help and it will bring you joy and happiness.
Thank you for sharing. I always enjoy helping and serving others.
Thanks for your comment Yanah, I am glad that you are working on making the world a better place by helping others. Marjie
I think being available to others is so important. I have taken a step back these past few years but I am ready to step out and volunteer again. It is so rewarding and this is encouraging
Angela, I am glad you are going back to volunteering and helping others. I wish you a wonderful year.
It’s always good to reach out and help others. I don’t know how you can handle the cold there, it’s been colder than is normal in Houston and I am freezing.
It’s very cold Stephanie, and all I do is staying home whenever I can.
Sometimes it seems silly, but it’s true. In the worst of my depression, helping others has helped me.
I can relate to that Ray, there are times, we are at our lowest point, helping out to someone makes us feel worthwhile.
I completely understand this. Serving is one of my love languages and nothing makes me happier than to do so!

That is wonderful April and so well said. Whenever you are doing something with love and enthusiasm, it will bring you the purest joy.
I love this. When I feel bad I tend to sit in the mood/moment. I will try to incorporate this mindset into my next bad day!
Please do so Rose, and do not forget to share the joy helping others brings you.
When I am down I tend to try to stay away from people. I defiantly will try and talk to my family or friends more often.
That’s a good start, Robyn.
It’s great that you found your passion and purpose in life. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for your feedback, Patranila.
Heling others gives you such a great feeling. Especially when it’s just because it’s the right thing to do.
I care for people on a daily basis, and I have realized that I am never tired of doing so, it’s just simply rewarding.
Thank you for sharing your story. You’ve just taught me a meaning life lesson.
Thanks for your comment Vy, we learn every day. Happy New Year!
This is such a beautiful post. Being available to others is definitely important sometimes.
Keep the good work coming in!
Thank you Prajakta.
First off I’d like to say thank you for being a nurse! I have been in and out of the hospital due to my Wilson’s Disease and I have bonded with nurses who have really helped me out during those tough times. You all truly make a difference!
After my near death experience I have noticed just how precious life is and the most important thing in the world are PEOPLE! People helping others out of the kindness of their heart is the most wonderful, beautiful, joyful acts ever. I’m happy to read this post, great job! ; )
Thank you for your feedback, caring for others is my true calling. May this year brings you health, joy, and happiness.
Helping others makes me feel warm and tingly inside. I hope to do more in 2018.
Great plan for 2018 Brandi.
Helping others can do so much for your soul. There is so much truth in that and I need to find the time to do this more.
I agree with you, Deb, it takes a great soul to help and care for others.
This is so relevant in today’s world not enough people are giving! as tony robbins said, “The secret to living is giving.”
Tony Robbins saying is so powerful, thanks for your feedback, Michael.
