It was last Thursday (I have been a bit slow putting up this post) that was one month since my mother passed away from cancer.
She was the most welcoming, giving person and even when she was sick she was always thinking hard about how she could help and comfort other people instead of the other way around. So I have decided start Thursday of each month “Think-Outwards-Thursday” in her memory, which will feature several times per year.
If things are going really well, this will be a reminder to look outside of my own life and find a way to share what I have. And at other times, no matter how difficult or sad life can be, to remember that I am not alone in these experiences and in fact there are many people who are worse off.
So this week I am going to start small and local by choosing 3 things I can do for people around me. I plan to:
- Go out of my way to help someone just because I can
- Reach out to someone going through a difficult time or just having a bad day
- Cook dinner for someone outside my household
If you would like to join me for “Think Outwards Thursday” I would love for you to share in the comments the three things you plan to do!
