My fifth piece of art for my Monday Mantra series: I am helping more than I know.
I am a firm believer in this: The more good you do to help others, the more good that will be returned to you. Sometimes I wonder if what I am doing with my life is helping anyone (you know, self doubt sneaks in it's ugly head), but the wonder only lasts for a minute. I keep on moving on and keep shining my light. I write this mantra every day to remind me to keep moving forward. I encourage all humans to do the same.
How do you help others? Need an idea? Share my post today. If I've ever helped you via one of my posts, help me today by spreading light to others.
I've been called to help others in a big way and by you helping me spread light and love via this post, you are doing more good than you know. Either share or repost my post via your social media site OR, simply take some time to help someone else today.
Need some more ideas on how you can help others?
I always try to do at least one good thing for someone else everyday. Whether it's cooking a healthy dinner for my family or friends, picking up trash I see in nature, texting or calling someone with something to brighten their day, writing words/creating art to be "candy" for the world's eyes, giving an extra hug to my pets, etc.
I think everyone should take a moment to help others a little bit everyday. Helping someone else is helping yourself, for we are all connected in ways we'll never know. And that is an amazing thing.
Backstory on my mantra series:
A mantra is a word, phrase, or sound that is repeated to aid in meditation. You could also compare it to a sort of prayer. I feel my journaling and writing of my mantras is a form of meditation or prayer. It calms me and helps me make better sense of my feelings and all the thoughts swimming around in my mind.
I believe saying or writing something repeatedly, as you already have it, aids one in attaining dreams and goals. If you write something as you already have it, it makes you feel, somehow, as if it is truly happening no matter how drastic or scary it may seem. It's like a trick to help your brain catch up to what your heart desires.
